KY-Sen: Fischer Trending Upward, But is it Enough?

by: James L.

SurveyUSA (5/3-5, likely voters, 4/26-28 in parens):

Bruce Lunsford (D): 41 (43)
Greg Fischer (D): 22 (18)
Others: 32 (32)
Undecided: 4 (6)
(MoE: ±4.1%)

Fischer continues to tick upward, but he's got 20 points to make up in a two week time span.

Lunsford clearly has a ceiling, but is Fischer running a strong enough campaign to exploit it?  I have my doubts.

Primary: 5/20.

the governor's race had a %40 threshold to avoid run-off last year; does the %40 threshold apply here? my feeling would be that IF lundsford is held BELOW the %40 threshold that he would lose in the subsequent run-off

a) the 40% law didn't apply to anything but the Governor's race, making it utterly pointless.

b) the 40% law was repealed this year.

so the primary is winner-take-all?

whoever gets the plurality wins it all.

Note to SurveyUSA
do you really need to attach an option for "Others" when your question includes every candidate on the ballot?

the SUSA poll, I find this interesting
Filtering: 1,600 state of KY adults were interviewed 05/03/08 through 05/05/08. Of them, 1,454 were registered to vote. Of them, 595 were determined by SurveyUSA to be likely to vote in the 05/20/08 Primary. Kentucky's primary is closed; only Democrats may vote.
how many of those register to vote are actually republicans?
I wonder how the 595 likely voters would have polled?
I've never been called on these survey, and I always vote.
