A new WHAS/Courier-Journal poll shows Attorney General Jack Conway and Lieutenant Governor Daniel Mongiardo are in a dead heat for the Democratic nomination in the U.S. Senate Race. On the Republican side, Rand Paul maintains a 15-point lead over Secretary of State Trey Grayson.
(Editor’s Note: This poll was released Monday evening. I was out of the office and unable to post the results immediately. I felt the numbers were still worth posting.)
Five weeks ago the poll showed Mongiardo with an 18 point lead over Conway. The latest numbers show Conway has narrowed the gap to only three points with 21 percent of Democratic voters still undecided.
The poll questioned 659 likely Democratic voters and has a margin of error of 3.9%.
