McMahon Pulls to Within Three of Blumenthal
Real Clear Politics ^ | 09/28/10 | Kyle Adams

In the race for retiring Democratic Senator Chris Dodd's seat in Connecticut, Republican Linda McMahon has cut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal's lead to just three points in the latest poll from Quinnipiac University. Blumenthal leads 49-46 in the poll of 1,083 likely Connecticut voters. The Quinnipiac poll comes a day after Rasmussen Reports released a poll showing Blumenthal leading McMahon by five points, 50-45.

McMahon, who has spent upwards of $20 million of her own money on the contest thus far, has steadily climbed back into the race, narrowing Blumenthal's lead to 10 points in early August and again to seven in September. The former wrestling executive has capitalized on the wave of anti-establishment anger and frustration with President Obama that has bolstered insurgent candidates across the country this election cycle. Seventy-six percent of voters say they are either dissatisfied or angry with the government. Of the 33 percent who said they are "angry" with the government, 78 percent back McMahon.

Personally, I don’t like our candidate. However, unlike the disloyal, traitorous RINO’s, I support her and hope she can win.
