Campaigns react to Rasmussen Senate poll

Here are the campaign spins on the latest Rasmussen poll for the Kentucky’s U.S. Senate race.

Here are the campaign spins on the latest Rasmussen poll for the Kentucky’s U.S. Senate race.

Daniel Mongiardo (D)
"The Rasmussen poll varies widely from the two most recent independent polls that show Daniel Mongiardo as the strongest Democrat against Republicans Trey Grayson and Rand Paul.  No matter how you slice it, the General Election will be very competitive. 

The fundamental question for Democratic voters is do they want a Kentucky Democrat like Daniel Mongairdo who reflects Kentucky's values and who will stand up and fight for Kentucky's working families or a silver spoon Democrat who represents out-of-state interests who neither share Kentucky's values or our priorities.   We are confident which one Kentucky voters will choose."

Conway Surges - Capturing Momentum in US Senate Race

Mongiardo Support Deteriorates - Unfavorable Rating at 43%

A new independent poll confirms that Attorney General Jack Conway has captured the momentum in Kentucky's United States Senate campaign.

Despite months of Daniel Mongiardo's relentless spin, the new independent poll by Rasmussen Research clearly shows that Mongiardo's support is deteriorating.

While Conway holds a strong 49% favorable and 27% unfavorable rating among all Kentucky voters, Mongiardo has a weak net negative rating of just 41% favorable and 43% unfavorable.

The independent poll shows Jack Conway is the strongest Democrat against both Republican candidates Trey Grayson and Rand Paul.  Conway runs even with Grayson and is four points ahead of Paul.   Mongiardo trails Grayson by 7 points (44% to 37%) and trails Paul by 5 points (43% to 38%).

"The people of Kentucky trust Attorney General Jack Conway because he's delivered results for them," said Mark Riddle, a Conway strategist.

Since being elected Kentucky's attorney general, Jack Conway has saved taxpayers $162 million, put child predators behind bars, and fought to keep illegal prescription drugs out of the hands of children.

Trey Grayson (R)
The press loves polls, but voters want solutions.  This race will be decided by Kentuckians on Election Day – the only poll that matters. 

Trey Grayson is the candidate who is articulating solutions to get our country on a path back to fiscal responsibility, and the more voters learn about Trey Grayson, the better we’re going to do.

Rand Paul (R)
The latest Rasmussen poll out today on Kentucky's U.S. Senate race confirms what Kentuckians from Pikeville to Paducah are finding out: Rand Paul's message of limiting government's power over people is spreading like wildfire.

"Support for big government bailouts, takeovers, and debt is falling like a rock," said David Adams, campaign manager for Rand Paul for U.S. Senate. "In just two months as a candidate, Rand is polling as well as or better than the professional politicians who have been at this for years."

"That just shows the power of being believable on balanced budgets and term limits," Adams said. "With Rand's credibility on the issues and support growing more and more every day, it's easy to see that Rand Paul will be the strongest Kentucky candidate next year."

Bill Johnson (R)
“I am not surprised by the close results.  Neither Mr. Grayson or Mr. Paul are Ronald Reagan Republicans.  Why is anyone surprised that neither can show distance from the democrats?"
