WOW, Could the CT Senate Race Make Up for Missouri? Connecticut Senate Rasmussen Poll: McMahon (R) 49% – Murphy (D) 46%
Connecticut, a GOP Senate pick up?
While all MSM eyes are on Missouri and Republican US Senate candidate Todd Akin and his ill-timed and even more ill-worded comments on “intentional rape” … a funny thing happened in the US Senate race in Connecticut.
As the Democrats have seen to found their delusional number one issue in the 2012 election, abortion. Instead of the economy, no jobs, +8% unemployment and an out of control federal deficit, Democrats are going to make their upcoming Democrat National Convention an anti-Akin affair. A Republican winning in the New England state of Connecticut? Wow, that could be a sign of some real rumblings under the surface to how the electorate will be voting for Obama in 2012 as well.
However, under the radar of the MSM and every one else pretty much comes the polling data out of Connecticut and the US Senate race to replace the retiring Joe Lieberman. According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, Republican candidate and former WWE exec Linda McMahon lead over Democratic Congressman Chris Murphy 49% to 46%. Could this be the US Senate pick up that the GOP needs to replace what seems to be an all but lost sure thing in Missouri?
Former wrestling executive Linda McMahon holds a narrow lead over Democratic Congressman Chris Murphy in Rasmussen Reports’ first look at Connecticut’s U.S. Senate race.
A new telephone survey of Likely Voters in Connecticut shows McMahon with 49% of the vote to Murphy’s 46%. One percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Is it possible that the Nutmeg state could be a Senate GOP pick up? As of this polling data, McMahon nearly has 50% of the vote.
