UPDATE x1: Bill Clinton will be coming to the western part of the state in a few days. Remember Hillary's visit was a huge shot in the arm for Bruce's campaign. MOre below.
Ladies and Gentlemen, according to to SUSA, It is now TIED in the Bluegrass state
Bruce Lunsford (D) - 48
Mitch McConnell(R) - 48
Undecided - 4
The full tabulations havn't been released yet, but as soon as they are I will give some analysis of the differences between the R2K poll and the SUSA poll to see what the differences are.
There it is folks, We CAN win this one.
Do you approve or disapprove of the job Mitch McConnell is doing as United States Senator?
7% Not Sure
Look at that. People in Kentucky now realize that they can and will do better than crooked crook Mitch.
Also, Bunning's approvals are at -4
Do you approve or disapprove of the job Jim Bunning is doing as United States Senator?
16% Not Sure
Jim Bunning is up for reelection in 2010. Potential candidates are Crit Luallen, Ben Chandler, and Jack Conway.
Ladies and Gents, Kentucky will be the state to provide us a strong filibuster proof majority.
Bill Clinton will be campaigning in Warren county, Bowling Green(4th biggest city) and home of the Western Kentucky University, and McCracken county, Paducah. link
These counties voted roughly 38~39% for John Kerry. However,if you look here you will notice that all of the southwestern part of the state broke HEAVILY for Beshear/Mongiardo in the recent Gubernatorial race.
According to the most recent polls, Bruce is trailing in the region of Kentucky that Bill Clinton will be visiting. He could help here immensely.
Mitch McConnell - 51
Bruce Lunsford - 47
Undecided - 02
