How is this possible?

https://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/politics/elections/kentucky/2020/08/04/kentucky-senate-race-poll-mitch-mcconnell-up-big-over-amy-mcgrath/5577847002/


Aug 4th poll has McConnell 17 point lead over Amy McGrath.

Does anyone know if that has changed?

1. It's Kentucky-- the article says Republicans win mainly just because they are Republicans.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell holds a slight lead over Democratic challenger Amy McGrath, 49 to 44%, with 5% of voters undecided, according to a new poll published by Quinnipiac University.

"Can a former Marine fighter pilot with 89 combat missions win a dogfight with a seasoned political powerhouse who has gone to war D.C. style for decades? She's giving him a run for his money," Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy said.

According to the poll, Republicans go for McConnell 92 to 6%, while Democrats go for McGrath 86 to 11%.

Independents are divided with 46% backing McGrath and 40% backing McConnell.

Of voters who name a candidate, 89% say their mind is made up, while 11 percent say they might change their minds.

Voters give McConnell a slightly negative 43 to 48% favorability rating, and they give Amy McGrath a negative 32 to 42% favorability rating.

Twenty-five percent say they haven't heard enough about McGrath to have an opinion.

As the incumbent Republican, 41% of voters say McConnell has the right attitude towards President Trump, 37% say he is too supportive of the president, and 13% say he isn't supportive enough of him.

Kentucky job approval ratings

Job approval ratings for the two U.S. Senators from Kentucky:

Voters are split on the way McConnell is handling his job, with 46% approving and 48% disapproving;
Voters slightly approve of the way Rand Paul is handling his job, 43 to 38%, with 19% undecided.

For Gov. Andy Beshear:

Voters approve 63 to 34% for the governor is handling his job.
Voters also approve 66 to 30% for Beshearís pandemic response.

7. McConnell

Last year, a Democrat defeated the republican Governor of Kentucky. That was originally deemed as very unlikely, but it happened. We canít give up.

8. I keep seeing where the race is close but thru out I have been seeing a wide gap. So,

I have sat pondering myself. McConnell behaves as if there is not a threat. I tend to believe the wide spread. I am amazed, but he is installed and Republican in Kentucky.
