Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnellMitch McConnellStudy: Trump tops recent GOP presidents in signing bills in first 100 days Senate passes stopgap funding bill to avert shutdown Let’s never talk about a government shutdown — ever again MORE (R-Ky.) and Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes are virtually tied in a new poll conducted on behalf of two progressive groups.
The survey was conducted on behalf of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and Democracy for America, two progressive groups that typically back Democratic candidates.
It shows a race largely unchanged from the last PPP survey, which found the two candidates each taking 45 percent support. A Republican poll released last week gave McConnell an eight-point lead over Grimes.
McConnell is underwater in this new poll, with 51 percent of voters disapproving of his job performance, while 40 percent say they approve.
The survey was conducted July 19-21 among 1,210 Kentucky voters.
