After back-to-back rough polls for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a former aide to the Kentuckian released a survey Wednesday showing McConnell with a sizable lead over actress Ashley Judd.
McConnell leads Judd, 49 percent to 40 percent, in the poll from Harper Polling and RunSwitch PR.
The pair is tied among female voters at 44 percent, with McConnell cracking open a huge, 18-point advantage among men. McConnell isn’t beloved in his home state — 44 percent have a favorable opinion of the long-time senator and 46 percent have an unfavorable opinion. But Judd is even less popular, with only 35 percent to 45 percent split on favorability.
