Was this done before or after the DSCC pullout?

Reportedly, the McConnell campaign says they're on track to get 53%.

Is it all due to #Obamagate?

Seems like the McConnell lead is a little overstated than the other polls, but it may explain why the DSCC pulled their money out of this race.

For what it's worth, it is Rasmussen.

And it does contradict the past 3 polls that show Grimes ahead.

I see only two recent polls to show Grimes ahead, one of which was an internal. On the other hand, Fox and YouGov have both shown McConnell with comparable leads, which suggests that either SUSA was an outlier or that this race needs better pollsters.

I don't trust a word Fox says. YouGov is an Internet poll, so I don't know how accurate it is.

What about the SUSA poll that had Grimes ahead?

I mentioned the SUSA poll, saying that it is either an outlier, or that better polls than Rasmussen, Fox News, and YouGov are needed to check SUSA's work. Either is a fair assessment, but to claim based on one poll that Grimes has a lead is shortsighted.

SUSA never outlies in the Democrats' favor.

There was also the Rollings poll that had Grimes up by 4. I never saw a word about it here.

Good riddance. Grimes has been an embarrassment.

Sadly, this race is over. Perhaps not this over, but it's over.

Even if it is Rassy, this can't be too far from what it'll be like on election day. Grimes crashed her own campaign and deserves to lose for it. Unbelievable how she blew a chance at a seat that never should have been competitive in the first place.

Wait, are you saying the Democrat should've won in a landslide in Kentucky?

No no, quite the opposite. I'm saying Kentucky is usually very safe for the Republicans, even if it is Mitch McConnell running. The fact that she had a chance to win the seat was pretty surprising.

Ah, you kind of worded it confusingly. She started her campaign off okay, but it seems to have gone off the rails.

At the same time, that politico article comparing her to Todd Akin is one of the dumbest articles I've read all year.
