Republican Rand Paul Holds Steady lead in KY Senate Race Against Democrat Jack Conway

Tea Party favorite Rand Paul won the Kentucky GOP Senate primary in May. Democrats were excited by the victory in belief Rand Paul was vulnerable in the November election. VP Joe Biden predicted a victory for the Democratic candidate Jack Conway. The latest Rasmussen survey doesn't offer Democrats much hope making Biden's prediction come true. Rand Paul is holding steady at 49% for the third consecutive survey. Conway trails with 41% support.

Rasmussen reported:
It’s the same story in Kentucky’s race for U.S. Senate again this month. Republican Rand Paul continues to hold a modest lead over Democrat Jack Conway.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Paul picking up 49% of the vote, while Conway earns support from 41%. Four percent (4%) would prefer another candidate, while six percent (6%) more are not sure.

Support for both Paul has been at 49% for three straight surveys while Conway has held steady at 41% or 42%.
