She Almost Has Richard Blumenthal Pinned



Text  



One of my regulars observes, “I’m not sure I’d ever want to face an opponent with unlimited cash who’s only down by five percentage points with 36 days to go.”

Rasmussen informs us:

 

Democrat Richard Blumenthal now holds just a five-point lead over Republican Linda McMahon in Connecticut’s race for the U.S. Senate.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds Blumenthal with 50% support and McMahon with 45% when leaners are included. One percent (1%) favor some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. To see survey questions, click here.

The race remains Leans Democrat in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.

This is the closest the race has been since May when the New York Times detailed in an article how Blumenthal has been embellishing his military record in public statements over the years.

Quinnipiac will offer new numbers on this race tomorrow.
