Louisville, Kentucky (PRWEB) February 17, 2013
http://www.runswitchpr.com RunSwitch Public Relations, in conjunction with Harper Polling, conducted a survey on February 11-12 that tested several political and policy issues recently in the news and important to Kentucky voters. The survey asked questions of 850 likely Kentucky voters and had a margin of error of +/- 3.36%. The poll found Mitch McConnell leading Ashley Judd in a Senate matchup 49% to 40%.
My takeaways from the survey are that Senator McConnell is in solid-shape among Republicans and general election voters, and that Ashley Judd, for someone who has never run for office, already has a tough hole out of which to climb regarding her own image, said Scott Jennings, RunSwitch founding partner and former Deputy White House Political Director under President George W. Bush.
The survey found that 60% of Republican likely voters say McConnell deserves re-election, versus just 23% who say it is time to give someone else a chance. Inside the Republican voter sample, McConnell was in strong position among Seniors (70%), Very Conservative voters (65%), Somewhat Conservative voters (67%).
Theyve covered their flank against those most likely to turnout in a GOP primary. Its hard to imagine anyone popping up in a primary who could give McConnell trouble, particularly when you consider he has been endorsed by Senator Rand Paul, Jennings said.
Speaking of Kentuckys junior Senator and potential 2016 presidential candidate, he was viewed favorably by 46% of voters and unfavorably by 42%.
In this political climate if you are a congressional incumbent and your image isnt underwater you have reason to be happy, Jennings said.
In a general election matchup, any Democrat has a significant headwind on the generic ballot. Just 37% of voters prefer a generic Democrat to 47% who prefer a generic Republican.
This is the trend in Kentucky, where Republicans are gaining more and more ground in federal races, Jennings said, noting that the state lost one of its two Democrat members of Congress in November and that President Obama received just 38% of the vote in November.
In the hypothetical head-to-head test, Senator McConnell led Judd 49% to 40%. Judds image in the survey (35% favorable to 45% unfavorable) presents a tough problem for the actress.
This tells me that people know more about Ashley Judds politics than they would of your typical first timer, Jennings said. And in this case her politics are so closely aligned with President Obamas that it is causing her problems, Jennings said.
Inside the numbers, Judd actually ties McConnell among women (44% to 44%) but loses handily among men (54% to 36%). Additionally, 28% of Democrats said they plan to vote for McConnell.
This is problematic for Judd but not surprising since so many Democrats did not vote for Obama in the primary and general elections in 2012 and 2008, Jennings said. Simply put, being aligned with Obama in Kentucky is just a millstone around a candidates neck.
Also in the news recently was a much publicized web video promoted by the conservative Super PAC American Crossroads. The web video primarily attacked Judd for calling Tennessee home and for supporting President Obamas agenda.
We found that both attacks Crossroads leveled against Judd were effective, Jennings said, particularly the alignment with Obama and Judd calling herself a radical.
On the issue of not living in the state, 40% of voters said they would be less likely to vote for Judd because of it, including 28% who said much less likely. As for Judds description of herself as radical and her support for President Obama, 48% said they would be less likely to vote for her including 40% who said much less likely.
These message tests are important because they arent one candidate alleging something of another, but rather messages derived directly from actual video of a prospective candidate, Jennings said. Attacks are much more potent if they flow from a candidates own words.
The survey tested two federal issues that have been in the news lately the recent fiscal cliff deal and gun control.
A slight plurality of Kentuckians did not approve of the fiscal cliff vote, and an overwhelming majority of Kentuckians want Congress to focus on the mental health aspect of the gun debate versus simply banning semi-automatic rifles, Jennings said.
On the fiscal cliff, 48% said the deal was bad because it did not contain spending cuts, with Republicans much more likely to disapprove of the deal. On gun control, 69% said keeping guns out of the hands of people with mental illness would be more effective at stopping shootings like the Newtown, Connecticut incident versus 24% who said banning semi-automatic weapons would be more effective.
Jennings said RunSwitch and Harper will release more results tomorrow that deal with some Kentucky government issues that have been in the news lately.
We enjoy the chance to illuminate the political and public policy debates occurring in Kentucky and hope to continue to release polling on a semi-regular basis that sheds light on how issues are playing out in the public realm, Jennings said.
The survey was not conducted for or in conjunction with any candidate or political organization engaged in the Kentucky U.S. Senate race.

Boston Predictive Analytics and Tutorteddy used sample polls conducted by different organizations for last 8 years on the likely Ohio voters.
Some of the polls numbers that were used are University of Cincinnati/Ohio Poll, FOX News/Rasmussen, Reuters/Zogby, Quinnipiac, and others.
Some of the algorithms that went in to the ensemble are SVM (Support Vector Machine), Random Forest, and Decision Tree, and others. This is a pure academic exercise, and none of the companies claim that this is accurate, and anyone must not make any decision based on this. To ask any question about these algorithms, and to get Statistics Help visit, http://tutorteddy.com/site/free_statistics_help.php.
According to some other polls, about 32% of the Ohio voters have already cast their votes and the President leads 62% to the 36% of those voters. Mitt Romney is expected to gain a lead amongst the Ohioans who still plan to cast their votes; provided they get to the polls on the Election Day. If Romney fails to win in Ohio, he has to win in Wisconsin, the new Ohio, to move to the White House.
Romneys narrow lead and trustworthiness in some Ohio poll are mainly based on some crucial factors like job creation, dealing with economy and energy policy.

With the election a week away polls are showing that President Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney are locked in a close race – a precise dead heat at 49-49 percent, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll (Oct. 25-28, 2012) from a random national sample of 1,259 voters. The biggest question in this presidential election has been which candidate can do the best job fixing the ailing national economy. College students are wondering which candidate has the best plan to save and rebuild the middle class. “I am really concerned about finding a good job after graduation and want to hear more about Obama’s and Romney’s job plans”, explains Mario Palma, a freshman at El Camino College. Some students have joined together and created their own jobs plan that both presidential candidates can use called SaveOurWorkforce.
Neither candidate President Barack Obama nor challenger Mitt Romney has addressed how they will discourage companies from outsourcing, according to college students. Ross Mazzolini, a sophomore at Texas Tech University explains, “A shrinking middle class affects young people the most and for several months students across the country have been working on a national jobs plan. We created a powerful solution that both candidates can support at SaveOurWorkforce.org.” He says the root cause of the shrinking middle class is that large companies making record profits have no incentive to keep jobs in America since outsourcing – sending jobs, goods and services outside of the United States – is invisible to the consumer. This ‘invisible outsourcing’ is the leading cause of the high levels of unemployment and can be solved by making it visible using newly available social networking tools with SaveOurWorkforce. The organization’s goal is to gives large companies incentive to keep jobs in America by providing a tool for consumers to easily monitor, encourage, and reward businesses that provide jobs to American families.
SaveOurWorkforce is made up of high school and college clubs that track and report the U.S. workforce size of the largest corporations in America and provide there database to the public free of charge on their website. The website tool Before-You-Buy, Verify” empowers consumers to direct their purchases towards companies that support the U.S. Workforce the most.

Three cheers is what we offer to people we want to praise, said a press spokesman for Tamils for Obama. We want to give two cheers for Patricia Butanis, who is departing from her job as American ambassador to Colombo. She did some things we think were praise-worthy, and some others we think were counter-productive.
Here are some things she did for which we are grateful, said the spokesman. They are:
Are you in? OFA.BO President Obama held a town hall meeting in Cincinnati where he highlighted a new report that estimates Mitt Romney’s economic plan would create 800000 jobs in other countries, including 73000 jobs in China. These jobs are likely to come at the expense of American workers, in cities like Cincinnati. Romney’s plan to create jobs in other countries comes after independent economists have said that his economic plans could slow the economy and reduce the number of jobs in the United States.
