Despite Missteps, Rand Paul Leads Poll in Kentucky

Sunday, 30 May 2010 04:45 PM

Despite a series of negative attacks in the mainstream media, Senate Republican candidate Rand Paul is showing a modest lead in his Kentucky race, according to a poll released Sunday.

The GOP candidate, son of Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, holds a six-point lead -- 51 percent to 45 percent -- over Democrat Attorney General Jack Conway, The Hill newspaper reported Sunday. This comes about a week after Paul made controversial remarks about the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

The lead in the Courier-Journal and WHAS11 Bluegrass Poll is within the poll's margin of error -- plus or minus 4.2 percentage points. Only 4 percent were undecided of the 569 likely voters polled by telephone, which was conducted May 25-27 by SurveyUSA.

The winner of the race will take over the seat held since 1998 by retiring Republican Sen. Jim Bunning.
