Great news out of Kentucky

There's great news out of Kentucky. Local blog the BlueGrass Report cites polling that favors Democrats in both tight House races in the state:

With exactly one week to go until the November 7th election, a new round of independent polling shows former Rep. Ken Lucas (D) with a 50% to 46% lead over Rep. Geoff Davis (R) in the latest Constituent Dynamics poll. Previously, the poll showed Davis with 49% to 46% leads in both of the previous polls taken in August and early October.

Also, the Lucas camp informed me that their latest internal polling -- received within the past week -- confirms their lead, showing the race at 46% to 38%.

Coupled with yesterday's numbers showing John Yarmuth (D) surging ahead of Rep. Anne Northup (R) by a 52% to 46% margin, I think we're now witnessing previously undecided voters casting their lots and breaking sharply towards the Democratic challengers.

This is absolutely fantastic news. GOP Congresswoman Anne Northup has made a living "delivering the bacon" to a district that is nowhere near as conservative as she is. It's hard for Kentucky voters to rationalize that she would keep delivering the pork from the minority. And Yarmuth is a good candidate with DCCC support.

Look out GOP. We're coming.
