Conneticut Senate race now a dead heat


Republican Linda McMahon and Democrat Richard Blumenthal are virtually tied in the Connecticut Senate race, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday.

McMahon trails Blumenthal, 46 percent to 49 percent — a 3-point difference that is within the poll’s margin of error. Only 4 percent of voters surveyed reported they were still undecided.

Blumenthal was considered a shoo-in for the open Connecticut Senate race earlier this year because of his high marks from voters as the state’s five-term attorney general. Blumenthal still has a high approval rating — 68 percent in the poll — but he is quickly losing ground in the Senate contest to the wealthy political newcomer.

McMahon has the momentum. but she is going to have to change some minds or get all the undecideds to break her way to win. I suspect she will get most of them, but whether it will be enough is an open question.

The race does show how troubled the Democrat party is since Blumenthal was a prohibitive favorite just weeks ago.
