Campaign Notebook: PPP Poll Shows Murphy Leading Race

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.


A survey conduced by Public Policy Polling shows Chris Murphy with a 48-42 lead over Linda McMahon. Last month, the survey showed a 48-44 Murphy lead.

Although McMahon leads the race with independents by a wide 51-38 margin, women support Murphy by 54-35 margin. Polls from other organizations showed a much tighter race.

McMahon’s campaign dismissed the results.

“While all polls are just a snapshot in time, PPP’s newest findings in Connecticut’s U.S. Senate race must be noted for what they are: Democratic numbers from a Democratic polling firm [editor's note: this links to the campaign site],” said Corey Bliss, campaign manager. “In an effort to resurrect his failing campaign, Congressman Murphy’s Washington cronies have recently given him money, staffers, and now brand new poll results.”

Can someone tell me what experience Murphy has that makes him worthy of being elected our next senator? All I can tell is that he is a slacker, who has never had to use his own money to make payroll. Certainly he would not be in this position if his daddy wasn't a connected Hartford attorney. As our congressman he has shown a willingness to be a sycophant ( ie lapdog) of the first order who obviously puts party above constituents and country. What a joke that he is "leading" such an obviously better qualified candidate
