SEN-KY: McConnell Ahead in Kentucky

CNN/ORC International poll in Kentucky has Senator Mitch McConnell (R) ahead of Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) by four points, 50% to 46%

Rasmussen Survey has McConnell leading by five points, 46% to 41%.

The most important thing to take away from both polls is this, Grimes support among democrats is not strong. This is troubling data as 16% of democrats in the survey said that they are supporting or leaning toward supporting McConnell. Alison can’t afford to have 16% of her base vote for Mitch when she is struggling to pick off more than 3% of republicans.
