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.
