General Election: Rand Paul v. Jack Conway
- Paul: 49%
- Conway: 42%
- Other: 3%
- Not sure: 6%
While men in Kentucky give the edge to Paul, women are evenly divided between the nominees. Among voters not affiliated with either major political party, Paul holds a 54% to 36% advantage.
Opposition to the national health care bill remains higher in Kentucky than it is nationally. Sixty percent (60%) of voters in the state favor repeal of the bill, while 36% are opposed. Those numbers include 44% who Strongly Favor repeal and 26% who Strongly Oppose it.
Conway comes across like a pretty smooth candidate, but he is just as far out as President Barack Obama. It’s Paul’s seat to lose.
