2. Murphy's new ad where you see McMahon spouting the 47% shit is powerful!

The campaign pumped that one out within hours of the Mother Jones revelation...good work, guys!

6. True, but it's the margin that matters

Earlier in the year, Obama was polling well below his 2008 CT number.

And what's also important are the coattails. The bigger Obama's number in CT, the more it can help Chris Murphy in his close race against Linda McMahon and lead to the Democrats retaining the Majority in the Senate.

9. Bingo!

Murphy must come from behind and beat McMahan.

She must have spent millions in lawn signs alone. I detest her!

7. Basically the same margin as '08

Several states are showing the same margins now.

8. True. Obama was +24 in yesterday's California Field Poll

I didn't post it since I don't want to post every poll in existence, but sometimes it can be worthwhile looking at the margin in Safe States as well because while they aren't in doubt, they can provide clues about the depth of support. So the fact that Obama is within a few points of his 2008 level in many states is a good sign.

11. Yeah, I cant for the life of me understand what's going on with Linda McMahon.

Chris Murphy is exceedingly popular. I know that she has tons of money, though.
