Poll: Beshear Maintains Commanding Lead Over Fletcher

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A new poll says Democrat Steve Beshear is maintaining a strong lead over Gov. Ernie Fletcher as the election draws near.

The Courier-Journal Bluegrass Poll released Wednesday found that Beshear has a 23-point lead over Fletcher, a Republican. Beshear led 56 percent to 33 percent among likely voters. Ten percent were undecided.

Beshear's lead in a Bluegrass poll taken in September was 20 points.

The poll found that Beshear has the support of more than half of all respondents in every region and every congressional district in the state.

The poll, conducted by telephone Oct. 26-29, surveyed 710 randomly selected likely voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.73 percentage points.

    i feel businesses should be held liable for buying stolen copper . if you are approched by someone off the street selling copper, at about half the actual cost or lower , that should be enough for you to be suspicious , your common sense should kick in and say hey how is it they can sell it so cheap? duh!! because it did not cost them anything.

    When Fletcher first took office he tried to do a hatchet job on the teachers salaries and benefits. How did he expect to improve education by punishing the teachers?
