Poll: Bunning Trails All Dem Opponents -- And It's A Tough Race With Different GOP Nominee

As for the other possible GOP candidates: state Senate President David Williams trails Mongiardo 43%-32%; he trails Chandler 45%-30%; he's behind Conway 43%-29%; and he trails Luallen 41%-31%. Secretary of State Trey Grayson does better, edging out Mongiardo 40%-36%, and is ahead of Luallen 36%-34% -- but he trails Chandler 40%-34%, and is behind Conway 37%-33%.

Bunning's approval is only 28%, with disapproval at 54%, and Williams is at 28%-41%, with Grayson as the only Republican in positive territory with 46%-19%. The Democrats are all in positive territory, though with pretty high undecideds in all cases.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
