Rand Paul Builds Big Lead in Senate Race

Monday, 06 Sep 2010 08:44 PM

Though he’s in what political analysts consider a “tossup” race, GOP senate candidate Rand Paul has pulled ahead of Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway by 15 points, according to a new poll.

SurveyUSA's latest poll has Paul ahead 55 percent to 40 percent, up from a lead of 51 percent to 43 percent in July.

Paul has 56 percent support among independents and 32 percent among Democrats. In contrast, Conway holds 34 percent of independents and 13 percent of GOP voters.

Fifty percent of voters view the Democrat favorably while 23 percent unfavorably. Paul, who recently came under fire for arguing that drug addiction is "not a real pressing issue" and refusing to say he would vote for the Civil Rights Act, is viewed positively by 49 percent and negatively by 33 percent, according to All Headline News.

Paul is vying for the seat of retiring incumbent Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY) this November.

Conway has consistently trailed Paul, an eye surgeon and the son of Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, in polls this year. But the race is rated a tossup by the nonpartisan Cook Political Report.
