McMahon Aide: ‘We’re Within the Margin of Error’

In public polls, Dick Blumenthal looks all but certain to win the senatorial race tomorrow. Yet an aide to Linda McMahon says her internal polling shows her “within the margin of error.”

“In our internals, we saw a seven-point surge last week,” the aide tells Battle ‘10. “It’s only a couple of points now; it all depends on our get-out-the-vote effort.” The aide notes that some of the public polls don’t measure intensity, and in her internal polling, McMahon ties Blumenthal or leads him among the most likely voters. The key congressional districts to watch are the fourth and fifth — where Republicans Dan Debicella and Sam Caligiuri just might oust Democratic incumbents Jim Himes and Chris Murphy. McMahon expects to do well there.

Today, McMahon is campaigning in the second district — once represented by Republican Rob Simmons, her erstwhile opponent in the senatorial primary.
