Kentucky’s junior U.S. Senator is undecided on a 2016 presidential bid, and so are his constituents. 

A poll released Wednesday shows 31% of registered voters in Kentucky say Senator Paul should seek the Republican nomination for president while 34% say he should not.  Another 32% are undecided.

The poll by the New York Times and the Kaiser Family Foundation questioned 891 registered Kentucky voters between April 8-15.  While acknowledging his wife’s reservations about a presidential run, Paul has said he won’t make a decision until after the November elections. 

Meanwhile, the Bowling Green Republican continues trekking across the country and speaking at events.  This week he hosted school choice roundtables in Chicago and Milwaukee.  This weekend, Senator Paul will be in Massachusetts speaking at the Harvard Institute of Politics.  He’ll also address the state GOP convention in Maine.
