Richard Blumenthal is up 25 points over Linda McMahon. From First Read:

Blumenthal Up 25 Points In Q-Poll: Yesterday gave us real doubts whether Richard Blumenthal would survive the week-plus frenzy surrounding the news that he exaggerated his military service. First, Vice President Biden was reported making this joke at an event for wounded troops on Tuesday night: “I didn’t serve in Vietnam. I don’t want to make a Blumenthal mistake here.” Second, Sen. Jim Webb (D), a Marine vet, gave Blumenthal very little cover in an interview on MSNBC’s “Hardball.” But how quickly a new poll can change your perceptions: This morning, a new Quinnipiac survey (conducted May 24-25) shows Blumenthal leading Linda McMahon (R) by 25 points (56%-31%) among registered voters. It also has 60% saying that Blumenthal is trustworthy, and 53% saying they’re satisfied with his explanations about the exaggerations of his military service.
