Daniel Mongiardo leads Jack Conway by 7 percentage points in a new Lexington Herald Leader Kentucky Poll released at 6pm today. link
Conway's 5 week media jump on Mongiardo appears to have peaked. Conway's barrage of misleading attacks may have backfired a bit.
This poll comes on the heels of a PPP poll released yesterday showing Mongiardo up by 9 on Jack Conway. The Conway campaign quickly released bogus internal numbers today because they were probably tipped off from the folks who commissioned the "Kentucky" Poll.
UPDATE: The Lexington Herald leader just had to pimp the Conway campaign by quoting the "Extreme Liberal, anti-coal, anti-working folk, anti-anything Kentucky, and most of all anti-Mongiardo" pollster for the Daily Kos, Research 2000. Absolutely amazing. How can the leading state media claim to have any morsel of objectivity left. Its a complete embarrassment. And the begin all end all reason for the Mongiardo bashing can be summed up in one little word; COAL. Mongiardo is pro-coal and Conway is only pretending to be pro-coal.
So Mongiardo us up 9 in the liberal leaning PPP Poll and up 7 in the extreme Daily Kos, sorry Research 2000 poll that the Lexington Herald Leader renamed The Kentucky Poll. Not too shabby.
