8% are voting for "some other candidate"?  I highly doubt we'll see that on election day.

My prediction:

KENTUCKY GOVERNOR -
Beshear (D) 60%
Fletcher (R) 38%


I just can't see Fletcher getting above 40% of the vote.  He may be lucky to get above 35% of it if he takes more of a tanking over the summer, and in a general election campaign, his approvals will only go down as Beshear takes aim at him.

I just know this race is going to piss me off by polling at like 59% and screwing over my prediction.

What is likely going on here is actually quite simple.  The Northup voters (and maybe some of the Dems too) are on the sidelines, waiting to decide finally.  Both of these groups likely lean towards Beshear at this time, for reasons that should be clear.  SUSA, which pushes leaners like crazy, registers this fact.

I suspect the end result will be somewhere between 55-45 and 60-40 Beshear, as some Republicans return home, but it would probably take some screw-ups by Beshear to make this closer or screw-ups by Fletcher to make it a greater defeat.

Which do you see as likelier?  I don't know anything of Beshear.
