Amy McGrath Takes Narrow Lead Over Mitch McConnell in Kentucky Senate Race, Poll Shows

https://www.newsweek.com/amy-mcgrath-takes-narrow-lead-over-mitch-mcconnell-kentucky-senate-race-poll-shows-1509691

Democratic senatorial candidate Amy McGrath appears to have a very narrow lead over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky's race, according to a recent poll.

The polling, which was conducted by RMG Group, shows McGrath, a former Marine fighter pilot, with the support of 41 percent of voters, while McConnell is backed by 40 percent. However, the polling also showed that when voters are informed that McGrath supports congressional term limits while McConnell does not, her lead over the Republican jumps significantly.

With the candidates' positions on term limits factored in, McGrath was backed by 45 percent of respondents, while McConnell was supported by just 30 percent. But 17 percent of those surveyed were still undecided, and 8 percent said they'd vote for a different candidate.

(CNN crawl just now) CDC: More Americans gargling bleach.

Thanks Captain Clorox! You're killing MAGATS.

My best friend for 50 years has caught the virus: he's gone full MAGAT.

We have talked once or twice a year in recent decades. He called yesterday, and I discovered he's suddenly gone full MAGAT. I gave him a piece of my mind. I'm afraid I'll have to unfriend him (in real life - because I don't do antisocial media like Falsebook and Twit).

I'm really bummed about this. I sure hope he's an outlier. Seems to be the opposite of the trend nationally.
