Rand Paul Leads Big in Kentucky Senate Primary
Another poll, another big lead for Rand Paul, the insurgent candidate for U.S. Senate in Kentucky who really should be labeled the frontrunner now. SurveyUSA has Paul up 42-27 over Trey Grayson, Kentucky’s secretary of state, in the GOP primary. The trendlines since the last SurveyUSA poll in November 2009:
Rand Paul – 42 (+7)
Trey Grayson – 27 (-5)
Bill Johnson – 5 (+3)
Paul’s done an impressive job of uniting Tea Party activists behind him and an equally successful job of debunking Grayson’s charge that Paul’s libertarian views would lead to surrenders on social conservative issues. The primary is in two months.
