Breaking: Debicella, Himes in Dead Heat

Dan Debicella’s campaign has released its latest internal poll, showing him tied with Rep. Jim Himes at 42%. The usual precautions about internal polls apply. From the press release:

·         Dan Debicella and Jim Himes both garner 42% in our latest survey, with 14% undecided.  This represents an improvement from our August poll, where Himes led Dan by a 42%-38% score.  Thus, Himes has been stuck at 42% for over a month, despite his barrage of negative attacks against Dan. 

·         Dan leads 47%-28% among voters with no party affiliation.

·         Dan leads 44%-42% among voters who are most likely to turn out.

·         Among voters who have heard of both candidates, Dan leads 45%-42%.  Among voters who have an opinion of both candidates, Dan leads 53%-38%.

·         The Republican leads the generic ballot, 43%-41%.

·         By a 50%-40% margin, voters prefer a Republican to provide a check and balance to the Speaker and the President, rather than a Democrat who will support their programs. . . .

·         National Research Inc. conducted a telephone survey in Connecticut’s 4th Congressional District on September 27-28, 2010.  The survey was conducted among 300 likely voters and has a margin of error of +/- 5.66% in 95 out of 100 cases.  36% of the sample are registered Democrats, 34% are registered Republicans and 30% are registered unaffiliated/undeclared voters.

·         National Research Inc. is a national political and corporate polling firm, whose client list includes New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Congressman Leonard Lance, and Republican candidates and officeholders throughout the country.
