So here’s how they stacked up in our Kentucky Poll of 600 likely voters in the May 18 primary.
Fifty-three percent either disapprove or strongly disapprove of Jim Bunning’s performance, while 38 percent give him a "Thumbs up."
Mitch McConnell didn't fare much better, 49 percent disapproving or strongly disapproving of the Senate minority leader’s performance, versus 41 percent who think he’s doing a good job.
Women were bigger critics of both senators than men, while both men received approval for their performances from two-thirds of Republicans. And it's not surprising that Democrats were tougher on both men.
Here are the numbers:
QUESTION: Do you approve or disapprove of the job Mitch McConnell is doing as U.S. Senator?
QUESTION: Do you approve or disapprove of the job Jim Bunning is doing as U.S. Senator?
Six-hundred likely voters were interviewed for the poll from May 2nd through May 6th.
The margin of error is no more than plus or minus 4% percentage points.
