Yes, we stated this fact back in July and a recent Gallup survey has confirmed our worst fears that Kentucky will soon be an official Red State. We are already considered a Red State on the National stage but these disturbing numbers may lead to a sustained Republican revolution on a statewide level.

The Kentucky House is in real danger of a Republican takeover in 2014 and considering a likely James Comer (R) victory in a hypothetical match-up over Democrat Jack Conway in 2015 for Governor the Republicans are poised to do what many would have declared impossible only a few short years ago. They are poised to take the whole damn thing, House, Senate and the Governor's Mansion.
The graph above is amazing, even in my most pessimistic moment I would not have predicted such a turnaround for the GOP in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Yes, a lot of this is a result of massive Anti-Obama sentiment but we must be honest, Kentucky Democrats are not Progressive Democrats. Kentucky Democrats are the last remaining group of true Blue Dog Democrats in the nation and many consider the politics of Progressives too extreme. Like or lump it, it's the truth.
We will have to wait to see the true motor voter registration numbers after the general election but I would dare to say that the Republican Party will be within a cat's whisker of Democratic Party registration.
We all know the Kentucky Democratic Party (KDP) is a joke. And even though many Kentuckians view Governor Steve Beshear favorably he may need to step it up and shake it up. We all know Jack Conway cannot win in 2015 just like we knew he wouldn't win in 2010 but prejudice and egos won in 2010 the Governor cannot let this happen in 2015.
There is only one way to save this party and that is a Daniel Mongiardo candidacy for Governor. However, I think it's a long-shot, at this time I truly do not think Mongiardo will run. If he is to face a GOP controlled House and Senate it would be a truly miserable 4 years for Mongiardo.
It's time to clean house Mr. Governor, for the sake of our party you must get out the big broom and use it.
