Almost 70 percent of likely voters in Northern Kentucky are leaning toward President Bush in the Nov. 2 election, a new poll says.

Statewide, Bush is maintaining a strong lead over Sen. John Kerry, according to a Bluegrass Poll.

Bush holds a 17-point lead over Kerry in the state, according to the Courier-Journal of Louisville, which published the poll.

The poll, conducted Monday through Wednesday, showed that among likely voters, Bush is the choice of 56 percent of Kentuckians, compared with 39 percent for Kerry and 1 percent for independent candidate Ralph Nader. Four percent were undecided.

The survey, conducted by telephone, polled 690 likely voters and has a margin of error of 3.7 percentage points.

By area of state, Bush garnered the most backers in Northern Kentucky, 69 percent; south-central Kentucky, 66 percent; and western Kentucky, 65 percent.
