As expected, Donald Trump is holding a significant lead in Kentucky as the early votes start coming in. The polls closed in a chunk of the state at 6 p.m. ET, and with the votes slowly coming in, we’re looking at a traditionally red state staying red.

CNN has the Trump with a significant lead at this time (70-28), though we do expect some fluctuations there. It is still very early.

We’ll keep you updated.

UPDATE: Trump’s lead has been slipping (though barely), however, Sean Trende at RealClearPolitics is seeing something going on in areas that should be strong for Trump.

Interesting.
