McConnell in some trouble, Kentuckyians strongly support minimum wage increase
by David Atkins
Don't look now, but per Public Policy Polling's latest poll Mitch McConnell is in a dead heat with Democratic challenger Alison Grimes. In Kentucky.
It's also interesting to note that while the polling sample voted for Romney over Obama by 16 points, they support raising the minimum wage to $10/hour by a whopping 21 points. Like much of the rest of progressive populism, the minimum wage is a killer argument that Democrats should be using from now through November. Watching Stuart Varney go into conniption fits for an entire year would be delicious, and great campaign fodder.
