After more than a year of campaign ads bombarding the airwaves and the candidates jockeying for votes, the latest Bluegrass Poll finds Kentucky voters set to re-elect Sen. Mitch McConnell to a sixth term rather than punish the nation’s top Republican by sending Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes to Washington.
The poll - conducted for various media outlets statewide - found the longtime
senator's re-election bid leading 48 percent to Grimes’ 43 percent in his
strongest showing to date. Kentucky
Bluegrass Poll results found Grimes leading the race by two percentage point in September and leading the race by four percentage points in February.
