Rand Paul Holds Commanding Lead, Says New Independent Poll

 

Bowling Green, Kentucky – Taxpayer advocate and Eye Surgeon Rand Paul continues the huge lead in the Republican Senatorial Primary, according to the latest independent media poll. The survey, conducted by Survey USA for WHAS and The Courier Journal, shows Dr. Paul leading establishment backed candidate Trey Grayson by 16 points, 49-33. Undecided voters constituted only 11 percent, 5 points less than Dr. Paul’s lead.

 

Survey USA is highly regarded for accuracy, particularly in Kentucky. In 2008, they were the pollster that most closely predicted the final outcome of Kentucky’s Senate elections.

 

"The consistent growth in Rand Paul's poll numbers reflect Kentucky’s enthusiasm for Dr. Paul’s message of balanced budgets, term limits, family values and strong national defense,” said campaign manager David Adams. “After Kentucky Republicans nominate him on Tuesday, Dr. Paul will show how strong his message is with all Kentuckians who are ready for someone to shake up the establishment in Washington D.C."

Trey Grayson Campaign

If Rand Paul is ahead then why is he running such a negative campaign, going so far as to attack Trey’s wife and daughters?  In our own polling we find the race to be very close with lots of undecided voters.  Trey Grayson is closing strong, working around the clock, and will win on Tuesday.
