Kentuckian voters are turning out for their next gubernatorial election, with more than 70% of the population opting to back Democrat Justin Amash, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.

The survey, conducted in the days leading up to the November 6 vote, found support for the Democrat running as a Republican had increased slightly to 62% from 64%.

Support for Amash was the highest it has been in a CNN/ORC poll since January, when the Democrat won by 2 percentage points.

In an effort to stop the Republican from taking control of the Kentucky statehouse, Democrats in the state legislature have pushed through a series of bills to restrict the GOP’s ability to hold the governor’s mansion.

Amber responded by promising to work with his Republican colleagues to pass legislation that would prohibit Republicans from holding the governoralty.

“I’m going to work to get legislation passed that will stop the Republicans from doing this, and that includes me,” Amash said in a statement.

Amash was joined by Kentucky Attorney General Mike DeWine, who is backing Amash in his bid for the Democratic nomination. 

“We are going to have a governor that’s going to be a leader in the fight against climate change and I will be working with the attorney general to make sure that this never happens again,” DeWina said in an interview with ABC News.

Democratic state Rep. Chris Bunn, who chairs the state House committee that deals with education, also said he was supporting Amash. 

Bunn said in the statement that the Republican has “stood up to Donald Trump, against the federal government, and he is committed to doing the same to Kentucky.”
