God forbid that any candidate to higher US office proclaim any other credo than the progressive-socialist dogma. God forbid that a humble man from a humble background that has never run for any office would be such an instant catch.
That just one candidate for the United States Senate in a small conservative state like Kentucky could elicit such a unanimous, lockstep, leftist reaction tells one all that is needed to know. And that is this:
Alas, the neo-Bolshevik far left goes for the only tool left in their dying philosophy-arsenal. Today's nutroots chatter proves that in spades.
Rand Paul, riding the momentum of his big Republican Primary win on Tuesday, now posts a 25-point lead over Democrat Jack Conway in Kentucky’s U.S. Senate race, but there’s a lot of campaigning to go.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Kentucky, taken Wednesday night, shows Paul earning 59% of the vote, while Conway picks up 34% support. Four percent (4%) percent prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.
Paul consistently led Conway prior to winning the Republican primary, but had never earned more than 50% support. Conway has been stuck in the 30s since the first of the year. Last month, Paul posted a 47% to 38% lead over the Democrat.
