Our final Kentucky poll finds Mitch McConnell leading Alison Lundergan Grimes 50-42-3. It's 53/44 in a head to head with leaners

Ouch.

Looks like she might do worse than Lunsford....which is pretty embarrassing for all parties.

Well maybe she can run in 2016 against Paul. It'll be a better year.

If Hillary becomes President, she will get a higher office.

that makes sense because after this election her personal reputation in Kentucky is severely damaged

The problem isn't a candidate, it's that Kentucky is so far right of the country it's a non-competitive state. Hillary will be targeting VA, NC, FL and even GA but forget the rest of the south.

Another thing to mention is that at least by making an effort in KY, it forced the GOP to allocate more resources here. I wish they would have done the same in WV and SD.

It was always a hard race, it would have been nice to win, but it was never a guarantee. I was never as bullish on this race as Republicans were on Michigan, where Terri Lynn Land was destined to win, because she won election to the Secretary of State office.

Again, Kentucky deserves all the poverty it gets if they vote for a Senator who does nothing but grandstand. You get what you vote for. Grimes is too good of a candidate for such a messed up state, anyway.

Or that Mitch McConnell is a machine who destroys potential candidates for higher office in Kentucky. He wrecked Steve Beshear when those two ran for Senate against one another. He runs scorched to the earth campaigns, and it's clear that Grimes wasn't ready for it.

Only if Paul runs for president and it's an open seat. I doubt she could beat him head to head.

Haha, the excuses begin! Which Forum Republicans said Land was "destined" to win? I, for one, always said she'd lose. Michigan is our ultimate tease. I'm pretty sure RogueBeaver never believed we were going to win it either. So go ahead and name names unless you're talking about the national GOP.

What excuses? It's not like this was ever an easy or guaranteed race to win, that much was evident all along. Posters on here were bullish about Land, until the polls showed Peters leading consistently. Vosem and Oldies are just a couple of names, I think Oldies even went as far as to call Michigan "Republican leaning".

You don't get it, do you? McConnell has been Senator for 30 years and poverty hasn't gotten any better, yet they keep sending him back to the Senate. At least when Nevada sent Harry Reid back to the Senate, he had a record of saving jobs and getting results for the state.

And? Your point is? We actually have a budget surplus, good property values, good schools and a decent environment. That's a far cry from what Kentucky has, which is low quality everything.

Post by: Recalcuate on November 01, 2014, 06:18:44 pm
Not shocked. This had all the markings of McConnell pulling away when the DSCC cut funding, only to go back in when it was allegedly closer.

It looks like that was fool's gold. Both parties have those states. It usually happens with Republicans in New Jersey or Pennsylvania in Presidential elections. The race tightens, everyone gets excited and then it goes back to where it should be.

As I stated earlier, given Obama's EPA policy that the residents feel is gunning for the coal industry, I am not shocked. A Democrat shouldn't win in Kentucky on the state-wide Federal level.

A swing of three points to McConnell (with undecideds obviously going to break for The Leader) and the Dems still think they have a decent shot here. Too precious.

A drop of sweat gradually forms on Keystone Phil's forehead as the most credible Kentucky pollster in over a month shows the turtle up a single point...

No.

The only two candidates that might have been better than Grimes would be Steve Beshear (yes, I know what happened in '96, but that was long before Beshear became governor) and Daniel Mongiardo.
