Posted on 08/23/2012 7:05:40 AM PDT by cotton1706
President Obama posts an eight-point lead over Mitt Romney in Rasmussen Reports first look at the presidential race in Connecticut.
A new telephone survey of Likely Connecticut Voters shows the president with 51% support, while Romney picks up 43% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and another three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Wisconsin, Michigan and competitive in New England, Romney's doing very well!
Wow, sometimes you can’t even trust rich people...
Don’t get hopes up about CT.
Just sayin ..
“Doing well” in Connecticut (ie losing by only 8) does NOT help when you are doing poorly in Virginia, Ohio, and Florida. Other than Indiana, you really can’t say for sure Romney is going win any states Obama took in 2008. All you can say is states like CT, PA, MA, and MI are going to be closer and he has a shot at stealing WI and IA.
We could turn CT into a red state in about 15 minutes just by ending deductibility for state and local taxes.
Didn’t CT have issues with voter fraud in 2010? Perhaps the state GOP should try to push Voter ID laws, of course that’s easier said than done in New England.
If Obama isn’t ahead by double digits in Connecticut, the floor is falling out from under him.
Bridgeport....and New Haven.And,of course,Hartford.
Sorry to say, but that is a whopping lead. And, in all honesty, I cannot for the life of me figure out how anyone but blacks (who put skin color above all else) can possibly rationalize voting for this loser. Since, I rarely ever talk with liberals, can anyone who does share their rationale?
The point is, Obama should be well ahead in CT. If Romney was at 51% in Alabama, we would need to be worried.
“Hang on, isn’t this a battleground state?
I live in Connecticut.
Romney will lose here, doesn’t have a chance.
The only consolation is that Linda McMahon -might- be able to eke out a victory. But no guarantees on that. I personally don’t care for her, she comes across as someone who tried to buy the office last time (and lost big-time), and who’s now trying to buy it again. The kind of wannabe politician that would make John Corzine smile.
Having written that, I’ll vote for her anyway, I’m a “party line” voter who will NEVER vote for a ‘rat again (if I was in Missouri I’d gladly pull the lever for Todd Akin, the jerk!).
Maybe, just maybe CT voters are getting sick of Dems who knows, if Linda wins the senate and Romney wins the EV of CT, maybe the house can pick up 2 or 3 house seats (and down ticket? Maybe Edith Praug's district will retire the old SENILE MARXIST BAT!! Her district is not as liberal as she is!!)
My dream would be to see Rosa DeLauro tossed out. Doubt that’ll happen.
truthfully, the rich are only in Fairfield County - and their summer homes in the Litchfield Hills. go to the Quiet Corner of CT, and you’ll see poor white people who are victimized by the UNIONS (abandoned Textile Mills abounds in places like Thompson, Putnam, Brooklyn).
If Obama can only pull 51% in CT, he’s in big trouble. Even though the nominee is Romney, he’s still the Republican in a national race, and I don’t think CT usually goes GOP in the Presidential race.
In New Illegal Haven it won’t happen. I think the only time if they combined CD-1 (Hartford), CT-3 (Rosie) and Bridgeport into 1 Congressional District. (Put the western part of Cd-1 into CD-5 and Manchester, South Windsor and Glastonbury into Cd-2, it would give those to district more GOP (granted RINO) votes!)
Obama won CT 61% to 38% in 2008. If he is losing those type of percentages in other states it might be a decent November.
I feel like some of these little negative stories coming from the MSM could be a little like when you are making popcorn and first you start hearing a few little pops before all of the kernels start to go. Probably wishful thinking. But, I live on the west side of Washington State which is as liberal as any area in the country... I am hearing rumblings from my liberal friends and neighbors which make me wonder if they aren't ready to abandon Obaama.
Yesterday there was an outlier poll for CT that showed Romney ahead.
That was hard to believe. Rassmussen continues to be the most believable pollster out there.
Got a link to that poll??
My mistake. It was a poll showing the R candidate ahead for the Senate seat in CT:
oh okay... I’ve saw that one...
