Brad Barron, the Libertarian Party candidate for U.S. Senate, running against Mitch McConnel and Amy McGrath for the 2020 senate race, is starting to make waves. A recent poll of respondents in July found that there is a 9% support level for the Libertarian Candidate as more people learn and discover his political stances and how they will benefit the state of Kentucky.
If you would like to meet Brad in person, there is a fundraising dinner in Lexington, Kentucky on Saturday, August 29th, 2020 you can still purchase tickets here.

Here is an interview with Brad we performed earlier this year!
Between July 25th and July 29th, 2020, Bluegrass Data interviewed a representative sample of 3,020 registered voters in Kentucky. The survey found a highly competitive Senate race and a narrowing lead for Donald Trump in the state. Key findings and the full methodology behind the survey are below:
Kentucky Statewide Survey Methodology: n = 3020, Margin of Error: +/- 2%, Text to Web: 1,420 IVR Landline: 1,600 This survey was conducted July 25th - 29th, 2020, and interviewed a total of 3,020 registered voters in Kentucky. The respondents were reached on their cell phones and landline phones via SMS text message (n=1420) and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) calls (n=1600), respectively. Respondents reached via SMS were asked to click on a web link to initiate the survey. The sample was weighted to match the composition of registered voters in the voter file by age, sex, ethnicity, party registration, census block group level of educational attainment, density, and metropolitan statistical area. Density was obtained at the census-tract level from 2010 Rural-Urban Commuting Area (RUCA) Codes issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The margin of error at the 95% confidence interval for 3,020 voters is ±2%. Bluegrass Data is a progressive data analytics firm based in New York City. They provide quality and affordable modeling and analytics to Democrats and progressive organizations in traditionally red states. Previous work includes much of the data and modeling efforts supporting the independent expenditure program responsible for electing Gov. Andy Beshear in Kentucky in 2019.
