RealClearPolitics - Election 2011 - Kentucky Governor - Williams vs. Beshear

This is for those who doubted earlier the ability of the Democrat to win this race.

As I said before, he is exceptionally popular. He's not just going to win... he is going to smash Williams.

Survey USA is actually a compilation of different pollsters, usually local ones.

This particular one was done by the Courier-Journal in Louisville.

Why were people doubting the power of a popular incumbent governor to win the race, particularly in a state that has a strong history of Democratic governors (only 3 of the last 19 governors were Republican)?

Because people who do not know much about Kentucky other than its stereotypes just say "Oh, it's Kentucky..."
