The latest WHAS-11/Courier-Journal Bluegrass Poll conducted by Survey USA puts Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul eight points ahead of Democratic candidate Jack Conway.

Paul – 51%

Conway – 43%

Undecided – 5%

This is more or less in line with several other polls. And WHAS-11 has this note from the crosstabs:

Paul claims a narrow lead, 50 percent to 45 percent in Conway’s home region, in and surrounding Louisville.  The only region Conway leads is in Eastern Kentucky, where the race is a virtual dead heat with Conway at 48 percent and Paul at 47 percent.
