In Latest Poll, Rand Paul Beats All Democratic Contenders in the Kentucky Senate Race

The two top Republican hopefuls for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky have put a little more distance between themselves and their chief Democratic contenders in a new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state.

Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson and Rand Paul remain ahead of Lieutenant Governor Daniel Mongiardo. Now, however, the GOP hopefuls also are beating state Attorney General Jack Conway.

In September, Conway ran even with Grayson and beat Paul by four points.

Grayson leads Mongiardo by the same seven-point margin he had in the previous survey – 44% to 37%. Against Conway, he now posts a 10-point lead – 45% to 35%.

Paul runs stronger against Mongiardo. His five-point lead in October has now jumped to a 14-point spread – 49% to 35%. He bests Conway now 46% to 38%.

Both Republicans carry over 70% of the votes of those who strongly oppose the health care plan no matter which Democrat they are facing.

Both parties will pick their Senate nominees in primaries on May 18.

Thirteen percent (13%) of voters in the state have a very favorable opinion of Grayson and four percent (4%) view him very unfavorably. Paul is seen very favorably by 17% and very unfavorably by seven percent (7%).

For Mongiardo, very favorables total 17% and very unfavorables 15%. Conway is regarded very favorably by 16% and very unfavorably by 13%.
