U.S. Sen. Rand Paul has hinged his fledgling presidential campaign on polls showing him ahead of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in some swing states, but the latest Bluegrass Poll suggests Paul might have a hard time beating Clinton in his own backyard.
The Bluegrass Poll, conducted by SurveyUSA from May 5 to 10 and sponsored by the Herald-Leader and WKYT-TV in Lexington and The Courier-Journal and WHAS-TV in Louisville, found that Clinton and Paul are tied in Kentucky with 45 percent each. Eleven percent of the 2,104 registered voters surveyed were undecided.
