New poll numbers released on Thursday hold troubling signs for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
According to the survey -- conducted by the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling on behalf of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and Democracy For America -- Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky's Democratic secretary of state who officially entered the race on Tuesday, leads the longtime senator by one point, with 45 percent to McConnell's 44 percent. While her lead is within the margin of error, the poll also underscored some broader issues that McConnell is likely to face as he campaigns for a sixth term.

At 51 percent, a majority of Kentuckians say they disapprove of McConnell's job performance, while 40 percent approve and 9 percent are undecided. Those numbers are an improvement over an April PPP poll that showed him to be one of the least popular senators in the country, with a 36 percent job approval rating. His lagging numbers reinforce a longstanding problem that McConnell has had wrangling support for his reelection bid.


"George Soros and the Obama Allies are up to their same old tricks," said McConnell campaign manager Jesse Benton. "They have concocted another fictitious poll that has no basis in reality, held it for ten days, and released it at the perfect time in the news cycle to help their upstart liberal candidate. This poll has zero credibility and should be ignored out of hand."
PPP's polling was lauded for its accuracy during the 2012 election cycle.

Mitch needs to go, I hope a real Republican takes the RINO down.

This is strange, this is another totally contradictory poll from just a few days ago: Poll: Mitch McConnell Trounces Both Democrat and Republican Challengers - US News and World Report
Whats missing is this: "PPP's polling was lauded for its accuracy during the 2012 election cycle."
PPP is one of the most accurate polling firms in the nation, and bias cant get by that.

All he has to do is tie her to Obama,who is I am sure even less popular there. I think his bigger threat comes from his right flank.
