Linda McMahon is closing in on Rihcard Blumenthal in Connecticut, according to a new Quinnipiac poll, the latest traditionally blue state with a Senate race is trending Republican.
McMahon now trails Blumenthal by a slim 49 percent to 46 percent margin, and leads him among independent voters.
According to Quinnipiac:
“With five weeks to go, the Connecticut Senate race is very close. Attorney General Richard Blumenthal is ahead by only a statistically insignificant 3 points. Blumenthal has to be concerned about Linda McMahon’s momentum. He can hear her footsteps as she closes in on him,” said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, PhD.
“McMahon clearly is capitalizing on the anger that one-third of voters are feeling toward the federal government.”
