According to the poll, McConnell (42%) runs dead even with his democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes (42%).
However, Matt Bevin, McConnell’s tea party challenger, leads Grimes by 4% in the same poll.
McConnell is running scared. His campaign has recently released a series of attack ads calling Bevin a big government, bailout proponent. McConnel also tried to pass off claims that Bevin didn’t pay his taxes. Multiple fact checking organizations have proved McConnell’s claims about Bevin to be false.
