LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- A second Democratic pollster has released a poll showing Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes with a slim lead over Republican incumbent Mitch McConnell in Kentucky's U.S. Senate race.

The Poll released by Grimes' campaign shows a 44-42 lead over McConnell.  The Mellman Group conducted the survey July 20-24 and released a polling memo which says Grimes’ strength is grounded in a 7-point lead among independents (35% Grimes, 28% McConnell) and a 33-point lead among moderates (56%-23%).

 McConnell's campaign manager, Jesse Benton, told WHAS11 on Thursday that the GOP senator's campaign's internal polling shows McConnell with an eight point lead over Grimes and a 53 percent favorability rating.
