Linda McMahon gains ground in latest poll
The latest Quinnipiac poll in the Connecticut Senate race released this
morning shows that Linda McMahon, the former WWE CEO, has gained some
points on Democratic state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal while her
rival in the Republican primary Rob Simmons also picked up support in his
race against McMahon. Blumenthal now leads McMahon by 10%, at 50% versus
40% with McMahon gaining three percent from the last poll in mid July.
Since that same poll, support for McMahon among Republicans dropped 5%
however although she leads comfortably with 47%, with Simmons at 30% and
Schiff at 14%. The GOP primary is August 10 and McMahon won the party’s
endorsement a couple of months ago.
