Kentucky Senate Election 2010: Reuters/Ipsos Poll Has Rand Paul (R) Ahead of Jack Conway (D), 45%-40%
Try as the LEFT might, Republican Rand Paul is still ahead in the polls for the US Senate seat for Kentucky over Democrat candidate Jack Conway. The most recent Reuters/Ipsos poll has Rand with a 45% to 40% lead over Conway.
Paul leads state attorney general Democrat Jack Conway by 45 percent to 40 percent among likely voters in the November 2 election. In a broader pool of registered voters, the two are deadlocked at 40 percent.
The sluggish economy leads among voter worries, with 58 percent naming it as the state’s biggest problem. It finished ahead of education issues, which was second at 16 percent.
The Kentucky battle is one of about a dozen races that could decide Senate control in November elections. Republicans must pick up 10 seats to reclaim a Senate majority and have a bigger say on President Barack Obama’s legislative agenda.
Much to the liberal MSM’s angst, the stories don’t appear to be sticking at home. The liberal media at all cost must try and destroy Rand Paul as he represents the Tea Party movement and a victory for the Tea Party in November send chills down the backs of Democrats. To be honest, it should also do the same to spineless Republicans as well.
However, Rasmussen has the race for the Blue Grass US Senate seat Rand 49% and Conway 41%. Rasmussen also has the race in the leaning Republican category in his Balance of Power polling.
In Kentucky, just nine percent (9%) rate the U.S. economy as good or excellent, while 50% rate it as poor. Twenty-seven percent (27%) say economic conditions are improving and 50% say they are getting worse.
Sixty percent (60%) of Kentucky voters would favor an Arizona-like immigration law in their state, which is almost identical to results found nationally. Twenty-one percent (21%) in Kentucky are opposed to passing such a law.
With the political mood of the country and Kentuxk being a “red” state, the midterm election for the US Senate seat for KY will go to the GOP and Rand Paul.
