Blumenthal Leads in Poll, Gets NY Times‘s Endorsement

Quinnipiac University has released its latest poll — another good one for Dick Blumenthal:

Democratic State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal has opened up a 54 – 43 percent likely voter lead over Republican former wrestling executive Linda McMahon, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. . . .

In today’s survey, 3 percent are undecided and 7 percent of voters who name a candidate say they could change their mind by Election Day. Blumenthal leads 95 -4 percent among Democrats while McMahon leads 87 – 12 percent among Republicans.

Independent voters shift from 49 – 44 percent for McMahon September 28 to 49 – 44 percent for Blumenthal today. Women back Blumenthal 63 – 32 percent while men back McMahon 52 – 46 percent.

Add to that today’s endorsement by the New York Times:

Mr. Blumenthal has troubled us by occasionally telling audiences, falsely, that he served in Vietnam. He has apologized in almost every public forum and made sure that he expressed his regret to real Vietnam veterans.

We have larger concerns with the Republican, Linda McMahon. She made her name and lots of money by running World Wrestling Entertainment, a noisy, demeaning business. Her policy positions, when you can discern them, are remixes of failed trickle-down ideas.
