The race for governor of Kentucky this fall is within the margin of error, according to Republican gubernatorial nominee Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
According to a survey produced for the Cameron campaign by Co/Efficient Beshear leads Cameron by 2 percent, and the margin of error for the poll is +/- 3.12 percent. The margin of error means Beshear could be up by 5 percent, the race could be even, or Cameron could be up. The more interesting number in the polling is the 12 percent of undecided Kentuckians.
Cameron’s campaign is banking on the race closely tied to presidential politics. The poll shows Donald Trump, who endorsed Cameron in the primary, with 57 percent of the vote in Kentucky. President Joe Biden has 33 percent of the vote, with 10 percent undecided.
The poll released Beshear’s favorability ranking which they say is 47 percent, however, they are not releasing Cameron’s favorable/unfavorable ranking.
Regionally, the Cameron campaign also shows Beshear currently winning the two largest urban areas in Louisville and Lexington, but losing Northern Kentucky and “other.”
The election will be held on Nov. 7.
