Quinnipiac: Democrat Richard Blumenthal Up 11 In Connecticut Senate Race

Reversing a months-long decline in his lead in the Connecticut U.S. Senate race, 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.

This compares to a 49 – 46 percent Blumenthal lead in a September 28 likely voter survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll.

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.

“After Linda McMahon had climbed to within 3 points of Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, he has stopped her momentum and increased his lead by 8 points in two weeks.  While September wasn’t very good for Blumenthal, perhaps like Reggie Jackson, he could be called ‘Mr. October,’” said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, PhD.
