— KENTUCKIES election results are in, and they’re coming down to a final two weeks before the November 2nd general election.
Democrats are looking to win Kentucky in the next election by as much as 3 points, while Republicans have a chance of getting by with a little more than 1.5 points, according to the latest Fox News exit poll results.
The exit polls of 3,918 voters in Kentucky were released by the nonpartisan exit poll firm Public Policy Polling, which is conducting the surveys.
According to the poll, the winner of the Nov. 4th election would be Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District seat.
In the Democratic primary, incumbent Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre was leading the Republican incumbent in the survey by about 20 points, 51 percent to 45 percent.
Republican challenger John Ritter was leading by 12 points, 46 percent to 44 percent.
McIntyre and Ritter are scheduled to face off on election night.
A new survey by The Franklin Center for Public Policy Research released Monday also shows Democratic incumbent Sen. Joe Manchin has the best chance of defeating Republican incumbent Sen of Kentucky, Mitch McConnell, in November.
The poll shows the two of them tied with 44 percent each, while Manchin leads by 6 points, 44 percent to 40 percent.
McConnell has made it clear that he won’t run for re-election in 2018.
He’s instead focused on helping Republicans take control of the Senate in the upcoming midterm elections.
However, there’s still one Democrat in the race, Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear, who is in the middle of a primary battle with fellow Democrat, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.
The primary will take place Oct. 15.
The FOX News poll was conducted Oct. 14-15 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent.
