This Rasmussen poll has Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell down 5 in his race against Democrat Bruce Lunsford. This is despite the fact John McCain leads Barack Obama in Kentucky by 25 points (!). According to Rasmussen, McConnell is carrying only two-thirds of the McCain voters. If these numbers hold up, they point to a nightmare scenario for both parties: the Republicans may face a congressional bloodbath while the Democrats may have nominated a presidential candidate poorly situated for beating McCain.
