The latest Rasmussen poll puts Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul at 49%, 8 points ahead of Democratic candidate Jack Conway, who has 41%.

Rasmussen entered the general election giving Paul a 25-point lead. The lead shrank to 8 points, then 7 points and is now back at 8. All of the fluctuations have been Conway’s, with Paul holding a solid 49% for weeks, according to Rasmussen.

In May, a Survey USA poll put Paul’s lead at 6 points, but gave both candidates a higher percentage of the vote.
