Was Andy Beshear’s victory against Republican incumbent Matt Bevin more his doing or simply because Bevin was unpopular?

Bevin was forcing people to face some blunt truths they will learn to understand the hard way.

Low popularity. It seems like it could signify low popularity for Republicans in general throughout the state. But Matt Bevin definitely wasn’t loved.

See my comment in the poll above yours. I think its Republicans fault for electing a candidate that they new would flop with low approval ratings. Actually Ted Cruz has decent approval rating among the state and that number increases if you look only at likely to vote voters. I don't think the Democrat really did anything too much. I will say I like how charismatic he is but he should have done better than just win by 0.3% considering he comes from a well known family and is going against a very unfit R candidate. I think you are giving too much credit to D.

Also people are uninformed and immediately when they think Kentucky they think conservative. But they forget that Kentucky has had moderate democratic governors for years and decades at times. Yet they still vote very Conservative in elections. So why is this all of a sudden a surprise.

Is say Beshears doing. An unpopular candidate can still win easily in a state that is deeply the color that the incumbent is (see: Bob Menéndez, Ted Cruz, etc). However, Beshear won because his family’s name carries weight in the state and his dad was an extremely popular dem governor less than 10 years ago.

But why would the same people vote for a Democratic Governor AND a Republican President?

Same reason Mass votes blue for president and red for governor, because state and federal issues are different

I just never saw why your wouldn’t want your state AND the country to be affected by the same party.

I don’t get it either, but I know many people see federal and state issues as separate. They may want to strengthen local transportation for example and vote Democrat in the state level but care greatly about the national budget and vote Republican federally. Issues aren’t black and white overall.x

We might want to wait until the votes are counted before celebrating either way. As of now it’s still too close to call.
