The Republican party in Kentucky has never seen anything like it.
Bowling Green eye doctor Rand Paul has no political experience, but with the support of the same people who backed his Dad, Texas Congressman Ron Paul, when he ran for president. Rand Paul has now at least pulled even with Secretary of State Trey Grayon in the GOP U.S. Senate primary.
In fact, the WHAS11/Survey USA poll has Paul ahead of Grayson by three percentage points, with a 4.1 percent margin of error. While Grayson is down five from our last poll 11 weeks ago, Paul has gained nine points since then.
Meanwhile, in the Democratic primary, Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo now leads Attorney General Jack Conway by 11 points.
Mongiardo maintains the same 39 percent support from the last poll, but Conway is slightly down. Yet a full third of the likely voters in each primary don't back any of the four major candidates.
