    Election 2010: Kentucky Senate - Rasmussen Reports

    So now SurveryUSA and Rasmussen have Rand Paul leading by 15 points, unless you take the leaners out of Rasmussen's poll where he's leading by 13 points. Either way that's a significant lead.

    Of course, Jack Conway's internal polling still shows them in a dead heat so... :rolleyes:

    I will vote against Paul but expect him to win.
    The guy has like zero political experience. This is purely a Paul dynastical attempt.


    How long till the KY tea Partiers will fall out with Paul judged to be not conservative enough?

    WTG Rand!! This is great news. The Democrats have spent several $Millions smearing him yet he's still on top. Go get em Rand. :)

    Easy for you to say he won't be YOUR senator.

    Zero political experience isn't a bad thing. I'd prefer citizen-legislators to professional politicians. Though I'm surprised you think Jack Conway is closer to your beliefs than Rand Paul, since you supported Grayson in the primaries. Or do you just not like Rand so much you'd vote for whoever the Democrats put up? I wouldn't be surprised if Mongiardo had won the nomination and you were going to vote for him over Rand, but Conway is pretty far out there.

    Once Rand gets to the Senate I don't think it will be long before social conservatives denounce him.

    Try having Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman or Lee Fisher aiming to replace George Voinovich. It's a sad state of affairs.

    I liked what Grayson had done.
    Rand has not done squat.
    Well he has put his foot in his mouth a few times.

    About 50/50 on him.
    But I fear what Paul will do.

    I have not seen anthing from Paul yet indicating that he is far of vision.
