Poll: Murphy Pulls Ahead In Connecticut Senate Race

Source: TPM

Democrat Chris Murphy has pulled ahead of Republican opponent Linda McMahon in the Connecticut Senate race, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University. Murphy leads McMahon 49 percent to 43 percent.

That's a sizable shift from the an October 4 poll showing McMahon up 48 percent to 47 percent. Murphy's new lead is the result of women and older voters shifting into the Democratic column.

In today's results, women back Murphy 52 - 38 percent, compared to 50 - 44 percent October 4. Men are at 50 - 46 for McMahon compared to 52 - 45 percent earlier.

Voters over 55 years old shift from a 48 - 48 percent split to 51 - 42 percent for Murphy.

Connecticut likely voters say 47 - 42 percent that Murphy better understands their economic problems. If she wins, McMahon would favor the wealthy over the middle class, voters say 55 - 36 percent. Murphy would favor the middle class, voters say 70 - 14 percent.

"Murphy has taken the lead in the Senate race in part because more voters now believe he understands their economic problems better than McMahon," Dr. Schwartz added.

5. I am in CT.

One of the latest ads she has shows people saying they are going to vote for Obama and her on the Independent line. She is running both as a R and an I. Murphy is also on the Working Families line.

I think a lot of people may just be getting sick of her carpet bombing. Tons of ads on TV, radio, flyers, signs. Ugh...

His ad showing footage of her in a Tea Party meeting saying she supports twilghting Social Security I think did her a lot of damage.

So glad he has pulled ahead.

6. i have been watching mcmahon's ads from nyc

they are numerous, and paint murphy as less than useless.

and i have yet to see a murphy ad.

i know fighting her millions is difficult, but how are voters supposed to know if what she is saying in her ads are lies?

i just don't get it.



i sure hope murphy comes out on top. if mcmahon wins, it is another office that has been bought.
