Lunsford Lead "Insurmountable"

WHAS 11's Mark Hebert is characterizing Bruce Lunsford's lead in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate as "virtually insurmountable."

A new Survey USA/WHAS poll shows that among candidates in the Democratic primary, Lunsford leads with 42 percent among likely Democratic voters. Next comes "perennial candidate" David Lynn Williams, who at 11 percent, is trading on the name ID of the President of the Kentucky Senate, also named David Williams. Lunsford's millionaire opponent, Greg Fischer, trails at six percent, and pain physician Michael Cassaro is supported by four percent of those polled.

The approval rating of Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, meanwhile, holds steady at 52 percent -- the same as last month.

We now wait to see whether Senator Pat Leahy -- or Senator Chuck Schumer -- will start demanding Fischer et al. to drop out of the race, "for the good of the party."
