Is Jack Conway surging in Kentucky?
The last SurveyUSA poll of the Kentucky Senate race showed Republican Randal Paul running away with it from Democrat Jack Conway. However the new one tells a completely different story in its top line. When two polls by the same firm of the same race differ by that much, there has to be a story behind the story. Fortunately SurveyUSA’s detailed public reports make it | Read More »
No progress for Jack Conway
The last time Public Policy Polling hit the Kentucky Senate race, Republican Randal Paul had squandered a huge lead. Democrat Jack Conway had pulled within 7 in the Rasmussen poll back at the end of June, and he was even tied in the PPP poll of Registered Voters. PPP (this time for Daily Kos) is polling Likely Voters now, and it’s not good news for | Read More »
Jack Conway Using His Position in Kentucky to Kill Small Businesses
Jack Conway is the Democrats’ Senate nominee in Kentucky. He is also Kentucky’s Attorney General. And Conway is on a one man mission to kill a large number of small businesses in Kentucky. He’s also abusing his position to help a major Kentucky business in the process. Here’s the deal. When you pass a FedEx truck on the road, you are passing a small businessman. | Read More »
SurveyUSA: Paul well ahead in Kentucky
SurveyUSA is no fly-by-night operation in polling. They’ve been around a while, they have a reputation, and a great many newspapers seem use them to poll local House races. So we can’t dismiss their continuing series of polls which look very good for Republicans, including this new Kentucky Senate poll for the Louisville Courier-Journal with Republican Randal Paul seeming to overwhelm Democrat Jack Conway.
Battleground Senate Poll
From Unlikely Voter: In an open and credited aping of the Greenberg Quinlan Rosner House battleground polls, Public Opinion Strategies has conducted a massive Senate battleground poll. Politico has for us the summary and 150 pages of gory, numerical details. I’m going to see what sense I can make of it.

Democrat Jack Conway Uses Racist Tyler Clay Collins to Smear Rand Paul
Democrat and Jack Conway supporter Tyler Clay Collins went to the Kentucky Fancy Farm Picnic this past weekend (a big deal in Kentucky) and began mouthing off some vile and offensive racist sentiments. Tyler Clay Collins also held up a sign disparaging immigrants to the country. Tyler Clay Collins wanted everyone to know how much he hates non-white immigrants to the United States. Tyler Clay | Read More »
Democrats Go to Canada. It’s a Fundraising Excursion
Rand Paul’s opponent, Jack Conway, has ventured outside the United States to raise cash from trial lawyers. Conway headed north, to Canada, for a meeting of trial lawyers from whom he wanted cash. The trial lawyers ponied up. Conway’s campaign said it welcomes support from across the country, which Canada is not. But it wasn’t just Conway. The mob banker from Illinois, Giannoulias, went too | Read More »
What is going on in Kentucky?
With the help of the Real Clear Politics, here are the last few polls of the Kentucky Senate race. PPP: Randal Paul +1. RR: Paul +25. SUSA: Paul +6. RR: Paul +8, Paul +7. And now we have PPP: Tie. Why is PPP running so much further toward Jack Conway than the other two pollsters?
Kundera writes of a balcony scene in the winter snow of 1948 Prague. Clementis offers his fur cap to the new leader Gottwald. Later Clementis is purged by the Communists and airbrushed from all the photos. All that remains of Clementis is the fur cap on the Gottwald’s head. In the end, all that remains of any of us is our reputation. Mine has been | Read More »
Arlen Specter is no more. Hahahahahahaha. This makes the fourth person in a statewide race to lose after Barack Obama campaigned for him. Trey Grayson went down in flames to Rand Paul, who openly embraced the tea party label. Tim Burns lost the special election in PA-12, but will now run in the general election for November against the Democrat. It is important to note | Read More »
Election Results Open Thread
Today is a big primary day. I just got off the phone with Tim Burns. He says he feels confident, things look good on the ground, and the Critz campaign has a small election day presence. I’ll be on John King USA starting at 7pm ET on CNN tonight to talk about the election results as they come in. Feel free to tune in. Otherwise, | Read More »
Sorry Trey, Try Again
Now that the DeMint endorsement of Rand Paul and the McConnell endorsement of Trey Grayson have soaked into the bluegrass political landscape, the question is this: whose did more good? I think we now know. Rand Paul is starting the last week of the Kentucky primary 16 points ahead of Trey Grayson. I may need to get up to Bowling Green next week for this.
Everything You Need to Know About Why Voting Rand Paul Makes Sense
Let’s ignore the lies Trey Grayson is telling about Rand Paul and just look at the debate from the other night. This pretty much encapsulates the debate, except it is really hard to convey the total level of smugness that exudes from Trey Grayson. South Park could do a follow up to their smug cloud episode and move to Kentucky where it’d just follow Trey | Read More »
It Was Mitch McConnell
Mitch McConnell is finally endorsing Trey Grayson in Kentucky after working behind the scenes for months with Grayson’s campaign. Grayson’s campaign has all the hallmarks of a McConnell Senate campaign effort, i.e. it is losing. Both times McConnell led the Senate Republicans’ election efforts, they lost seats. But it gets more interesting. As news of McConnell’s endorsement percolates this morning in Kentucky, we now know | Read More »
Republicans Should Oppose the Stimulus Bill
There seems to be a lot of happy talk surrounding Barack Obama’s recent trip to Capitol Hill, and his attempt to sell his stimulus bill to Republicans by adding a few ‘tax cuts.’ But bipartisan bonhomie notwithstanding, there’s no more reason to embrace Barack Obama’s stimulus plan today than there was a week ago. It is still a tremendous waste of taxpayer dollars, will do nothing | Read More »
