I wonder if a certain person that shall remain nameless, will be along shortly to say these polls don't count because they are wrong.  :silly:

Indeed. Keep in mind: This was a paid poll. McConnell is risking looking like Rick Lazio at this rate. All the polls had him way ahead in his primary, too.

If McConnell were doing this well he would not have gone on the CPAC stage with a gun.

"DEWEY WINS!", right?

One can get any poll results that one wants for the right price. I don't put a lot of stock in polls.

Hmm. Public Opinion Strategies. POS.

Coincidence? You be the judge.

Like I said on another thread, I have not seen a single sign supporting Mitch McConnell in my part of the state.  However, I have seen numerous signs saying "Ditch Mitch" and signs supporting Matt Bevin.

Just want to let you know that we're all pulling for Kentucky to DITCH MITCH, down here in TEXAS!

Don't let up for anything!

McConnell is favored in his primary, and expected to encounter Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes in the general election in Kentucky.

How weak/strong would McConnell be against proto-fascist, I mean democrat, Grimes?  That's all that really matters.  I don't particularly approve of Mr. McConnell, but I would certainly prefer him to any democrat, period.

Dream the dream conservatives.  Bevin can't win the primary so you get McConnell or Grimes.  Real conservatives choose rat.

She's pretty weak.  Bill Clinton is supposed to stump for her in the state.  I'm sure she doesn't want Obama anywhere near her because he is HATED here because he is destroying coal jobs.  I expect the DNC to spend a lot of money to help her - they would love to get that senate seat.  Mitch is Kentucky's Robert Byrd - they'll still wheel him out on the floor long after he's dead.

Yeah.  These guys that make their LIVING doing polls are way off, they don't know what they're doing.

McConnell is going to beat Bevin by a huge margin and he'll beat that nutty Grimes too.  He ALWAYS has these near-death experiences and survives them all.

As between McConnell and a crypto-fascist, I'll take McConnell.  As between a crypto-fascist and a card-carrying member of the USA Democrat Party, I'll take the crypto-fascist.

He has a 67% job approval rating.   What do you think?

Grimes is running away from every Democrat position she can, going to gun ranges so she can be photographed with a rifle.

Plus, there's a Republican wave developing, and not a single Republican will lose in a Senate race.

I don't have the context to think one way or the other, that's why I'm asking.  Past performance is no guarantee of future performance; I'm more interested in current polling and the take on the situation by those more familiar with it.

According to http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/latest_polls/senate/#

Latest poll has McConnell up 1 over Grimes.  But McConnell is busy dragging Bevin through the mud now.  In a couple months he'll do the same to Grimes.
