Quinnipiac Poll of Connecticut: Obama +14 Murphy +6
President Barack Obama buries Gov. Mitt Romney in the run for the White House, leading 55 - 41 percent, compared to 54 - 42 percent October 4.
Obama leads 60 - 36 percent among women and gets 49 percent of men to Romney's 46 percent. The President leads among every subgroup except Republicans.
Only 5 percent of Romney voters and 6 percent of Obama voters say they might change their mind.
"President Barack Obama is running stronger than Murphy in Connecticut, holding steady with a 14 point lead over Gov. Mitt Romney. The President's coattails are helping Murphy," Schwartz said.
Women and older voters are shifting away from Linda McMahon, the Republican candidate in Connecticut's U.S. Senate race, giving U.S. Rep. Christopher Murphy, the Democrat, a 49 - 43 percent likely voter lead, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
This compares to the results of an October 4 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, showing McMahon with 48 percent to Murphy with 47 percent.
From October 19 - 22, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,412 likely voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.6 percentage points. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.

2. McMahon's unfavorable ratings make it near impossible to win.
On the phones and on the ground, we are working to elect Chris and re-elect Obama.
