New Poll Shows Murphy Pulling Away From McMahon

One day before the election the latest poll indicates that Democrat Chris Murphy is widening his lead in the U.S. Senate race.

A new poll shows Democrat Chris Murphy now has a nine-point lead over his Republican rival Linda McMahon, according to latest report by Public Policy Polling.  

The group says its latest poll shows Murphy leading McMahon 52-43.

“In Connecticut our final poll finds Chris Murphy with his largest lead all year at 9 points,” the group says on its website. “He's increased his advantage by 5 points since two weeks ago when he was ahead just 48-44. Linda McMahon, already unpopular, has just become more disliked by voters in the state over the last couple weeks. Only 37% have a favorable opinion of her to 52% with an unfavorable one." 

McMahon's campaign calls the poll results a "desperate stunt" intended to discourage her supporters, according to the blog Capitol Watch. A McMahon spokesman said Public Policy Polling is "nothing more than a front for the Democrats, and this is a sad stunt. Our supporters won’t be deterred by the Democrats’ desperation," the blog says.

Senate seats should not be auctioned off to the highest bidder. The CT GOP should be embarrassed by putting her up over Shays, who actually could discuss policy and debate on issues.
