Posted at 9:52 AM, Sep 22, 2020

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell leads challenger Amy McGrath by 15 points in a poll released Tuesday by Morning Consult.

McConnell leads McGrath 52% to 37% with 86% of GOP voters favoring McConnell. McGrath is favored by 5% of GOP voters, according to the poll.

The poll was conducted from Sept. 11-20 among hundreds of likely voters in each state. The margin of error for responses ranges from +/-2% to +/-7%.

The new poll indicates a growing lead for the Senate majority leader over his Democratic challenger. A Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday showed McConnell with a 12-point lead, while another Quinnipiac poll released in August showed McConnell with a slimmer lead of just 5 points over McGrath.
