Poll: Kentuckians closely follow presidential race

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A poll shows more than 60 percent of Kentuckians are paying special attention to the presidential race.

The Courier-Journal Bluegrass Poll hadn't found as much interest in any presidential campaign since it began surveying voters 20 years ago. Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama are running in the Nov. 4 contest.

The phone poll of 800 Kentucky residents was taken last week for the newspaper by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc. of Washington, D.C. It has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
