McConnell’s Had Better Days

Seems like Mitch McConnell is really having a bad week.  A new poll from Public Policy Polling shows him actually trailing his likely Democratic opponent 45-44.  For someone as established as McConnell to be polling under 50% at this point is never good, especially when he has a primary challenger at his heels.

Looks like a Rand Paul is more valuable to McConnell than ever before.  Look for Paul to get McConnell to start being extra supportive of his legislative agenda.  McConnell already voted for Paul’s bill to cut Egyptian foreign aid, even a majority of his own caucus opposed it.
