    Our big Kentucky Rally on Monday night had a massive impact on all of the races. The increase in Governors race was at least 15 points, and maybe 20!

    All the other contests went red.
    This Bevins guy was uniformly disliked. He didn't have a chance. Trump truly did bump him up 15 points. From last April:

    Kentucky's Matt Bevin now the most unpopular governor in US, poll says
    Scott Wartman, Cincinnati Enquirer Published 10:16 a.m. ET April 25, 2019 | Updated 4:36 p.m. ET April 25, 2019

    Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin says America is soft on kids because schools in the state closed because of subzero temperatures thanks to a polar vort

    Kentucky's Matt Bevin hasn't won many popularity contests after being elected governor in 2015.

    His publicized fights with the teacher's unions over pensions and with people on social media has led to polls consistently ranking him as one of the least popular governors in the country.

    Bevin for the first time snagged the bottom spot Thursday morning in a poll released by Morning Consult, a non-partisan polling firm based in Washington, D.C.

    The poll gives Democrats hope since Kentucky's Republican governor faces re-election campaign this year. Democrats will pick their candidate in a May 21 primary.


    Kentucky Democrats in the past 20 years have lost both houses of the state legislature and all but one statewide office in Kentucky.

    Morning Consult's poll of Kentucky voters showed 33 percent approved of Bevin while 52 percent didn't. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus one percent.

    The 19 percentage point gap was the largest among the nation's 50 governors. Bevin and Rhode Island's Democratic governor Gina Raimondo were the only governors in the poll who had half of the electorate who disapprove of them.

    The gap between Raimondo haters and supporters was much smaller than Bevin's, only 10 percentage points.

    As for Ohio, newly-elected Republican governor Mike DeWine fared OK. The poll showed 44 percent liked DeWine while 26 percent didn't.

    Lets be fair to our John here. He didn't say which candidate would benefit from the "massive impact".

    I'm starting to feel a little sorry for our John. Thank God he'll always have Mississippi to cheer him up... There must be a Federal Prison somewhere in Mississippi. Maybe he can request that one.

    On this morning's news they said Bevin was polling five points higher just before Trumps visit, than just after. That's probably within the error bounds, so maybe, to be fair to Trump, he didn't hurt Bevin much. And we do want to be fair!

    Apparently it is really hard for a Jackass, without a lot of Russian Help, to win an election.

    Mississippi,considered the most conservative state in the country, was only won by 5 points.

    The last Governors race in 2015 (prior to Trump) was won by 34 points :wtf:
