Alison Lundergan Grimes takes the lead over Mitch McConnell (again) in latest poll!


One poll does not an election make...

I'm sure I heard that...somewhere.

Anyway, the only thing that you should take from this story is that the McConnell-Grimes race is by no means over, and that Mitch is still in heaps of trouble:

After two polls in his favor, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell again has slipped behind Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes, according to the latest Bluegrass Poll. 

Grimes, Kentucky's secretary of state, now leads the veteran five-term senator 46 percent to 44 percent among likely voters, the survey found. While that advantage is within the poll's margin of error, it represents a 6-point swing to the Democrat since the last survey in late August.

Libertarian candidate David Patterson had 3 percent support in the poll, while 7 percent of likely voters said they were undecided.

You can read the rest at the Courier-Journal, a local Kentucky Newspaper.

There's also good analysis from our good friends at Talking Points Memo.
