Fletcher Compares Himself To Underdog UK Football Team

HARTFORD, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Ernie Fletcher is comparing his
campaign to the underdog University of Kentucky football team in
reacting to a new poll showing him lagging far behind his
Democratic opponent.
A smiling Fletcher glad-handed and hugged supporters Friday, a
day after a Lexington Herald-Leader-Action News 36 Election Poll
showed him trailing Beshear by 15 points heading into the November
6 election.
The poll shows Beshear would receive 55 percent of the vote,
while Fletcher would tally about 40 percent. Five percent of those
surveyed were undecided.
Fletcher noted that Kentucky was a big underdog against
Louisiana State University when the teams met in Lexington earlier
this month.
"Sound like a familiar story?" he asked. "Who won?
Kentucky."
