Don't say we didn't warn you.
If Trey Greyson was on the top of this poll, he'd likely be winning by 10% or more. However, since the primary voters in kentucky overwhelmingly chose Paul, they're looking at a tough, unnecessary slog. According to a PPP poll, which tends to lean Democratic, both Paul and his opponent, Jack Conway carry an equal amount of support.
Paul (R): 43%
Conway (D): 43%
Furthermore, Paul's negatives are above 40%, which is dangerously high for a non-incumbent. In the short amount of time from the primaries to today, Paul seems to have alienated many Democrats and Republicans alike-- pushing people to come out to vote against him.
Paul is far away from the 50% he needs to sew up this race. Kentucky is a deep red state in a GOP year. Normally, a Republican candidate would be sweeping the floor, but Paul and his outlandishly dumb statements may hand a seat to the Democrats-- exactly what we don't need.
