Rasmussen: McConnell leads Lunsford by 9 points

So much for The Courier-Journal's silly sampling method. The new Rasmussen Reports poll shows that Senator Mitch McConnell has a nine-point lead over Democrat Bruce Lunsford. In addition, Rasmussen now says that McConnell has a 70% chance of re-election.

The same Rasmussen poll also shows that only 37% of Kentuckians approve of Governor Steve Beshear's job performance, compared to 60% in the Courier-Journal's misweighted poll. Rasmussen will release the presidential numbers at 5pm ET today. I expect McCain to maintain his sizable lead over Obama here in Kentucky.

Your thoughts?
