What Polls Say about Booker McGrath and McConnell in Kentucky Senate Race



#booker #news #news for today #news english #People & Blogs
Kentuckians will head to the polls Tuesday to decide which Democrat should challenge Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in November and surveys show last-minute surprises. A new Civiqs poll found Charles Booker, the state's youngest Black lawmaker, surging past former fighter pilot Amy McGrath. Of the 898 registered voters surveyed, 44 percent said they would vote for Booker while 36 percent said they would support McGrath. Four percent of voters polled said they would back progressive farmer Mike Broihier, another candidate for the party's nomination. McGrath has long been presumed the frontrunner of the primary since the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee backed her bid in the summer of 2019. While independent polling of the contest has been sparse—the Civiqs poll was the first public survey—an internal poll from the Booker team released just last week showed her 10 points ahead and another released Saturday had her up by 7 points. But Booker, a young progressive who supports policies such as Medicare for All and the Green New Deal, has gained momentum in the red state amid his visibility at protests over racial injustice and police brutality. Louisville, his hometown and legislative district, has been the center of the state's unrest following the police shootings of two black residents: Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT who was shot by police and killed in her own apartment, and David McAtee, a restaurant owner who was shot by the National Guard."We're going to win this primary," Booker told NBC's AM Joy on Sunday in response to the latest polling. "We're standing up as regular people fighting back for our future, fighting to end generational poverty and address structural racism, and to say that outside consultants will not dictate our future."In response to Booker's surge in the polls, McGrath's campaign manager Mark Nickolas told Newsweek in a statement that she "has been outside of the political establishment her entire life, including during her 2018 campaign for Congress when she had to run against the national Democratic party" and that they "have faith that Kentuckians know Amy McGrath is the best candidate to fight for them and to defeat Mitch McConnell."A spokesman for McGrath also said the campaign has three internal polls ending June 19 that show her leading by double-digits. The sudden competitiveness of the race is evident by the millions of dollars each campaign has poured into last-minute advertising. According to the political ad tracker Medium Buying, McGrath is shelling out more than $3 million in television and radio spots ahead of the June 23 primary. Booker, who was late to put up any ads at all, purchased his first two statewide buys in these final weeks for just over $1 million. As Booker and McGrath battle for the Democratic nomination, the Civiqs survey showed McConnell easily beating all of his challengers in potential general election races this fall. In a head-to-head matchup with McGrath, McConnell was

I like Charles Booker, but I don't think there's any way he can beat Mitch McConnell in November.
It's too bad Republican state senators Damon Thayer and Robert Stivers aren't running vs. McConnell in the Republican senate primary.
It would have been nice to see McConnell primaried out.
