Kentucky Senate Race Tightens

Hmm. This Public Policy Polling poll finds finds Mitch McConnell leading challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes by only 1 point, 43% to 42%, While McConnell's inability to reach 50% against a challenger is troubling two things are important to consider. McConnell is facing a primary challenge and Grimes is not. The other consideration is the sample is skewed 52% Democrat to 39% Republican. That may or may not reflect voter registration in Kentucky but Barack Obama lost Kentucky by 16 points. His job approval in Kentucky is 31%. Leading from behind!
