Quinnipiac: GOP’s McMahon Within 6 of Blumenthal in Connecticut


Quinnipiac: “Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, the Democrat, leads Republican former wrestling executive Linda McMahon 51 – 45 percent among likely voters in the U.S. Senate race, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Another 3 percent are undecided and 11 percent of those who do name a candidate say they could change their mind by Election Day.  This is the independent Quinnipiac University’s first general election likely voter survey in Connecticut in this election cycle and can not be compared to earlier surveys of registered voters. In today’s survey, conducted by telephone with live interviewers, Blumenthal leads 87 – 10 percent among Democrats and gets 47 percent of independent voters to McMahon’s 46 percent.  McMahon leads 91 – 9 percent among Republicans.”

This looks winnable for McMahon. Not easy, but winnable.
