Skip to comments.Rasmussen : Connecticut Senate: Blumenthal (D) Stretches Lead Over McMahon (R) (56%-43%)
Posted on 10/25/2010 8:55:10 AM PDT by WebFocus
State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal again holds a double-digit lead over Republican opponent Linda McMahon in Connecticuts U.S. Senate race.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Connecticut shows the longtime Democratic state official with 56% support, his best showing since early June. McMahon claims 43%of the vote. One percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, and another one percent (1%) are undecided.
Less than two weeks ago after the candidates second televised debate, Blumenthal posted a much narrower 51% to 46% lead. But the new findings shift this race from Leans Democrat to Solid Democrat in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.
Despite the ups and downs of the contest, including the New York Times disclosure that Blumenthal has embellished his military record in public comments over the years, the Democrat has led consistently in polling since January.
Can’t depend on the rich leftist elites of CT to do the right thing.
Ct like California is a liberal septic tank that will neer be pumped. Liberals will win every time and that’s just the way it is.
Too many morons in CT, I guess.
Shoot. If you have anyone in Connecticut you know who is not politically aware, encourage them to send a message to Obama by voting for Linda McMahon.
Fight, fight, fight to the end!
How can the people in CT sleep at night if they even consider voting for this slimy excuse for a person?
This is just pathetic. Why don’t the rich CT residents just write obama a check for half of their wealth. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
At this point, we have no choice but to to kiss CT goodbye.
The Democratic lead looks insurmountable here.
Rasmussen is an accurate and GOP sympathizing poll, and it looks like MOST undecideds in CT have made up their mind.
The GOP could really have done better than nominating someone who runs the WWE...
Let’s look at the other states in the meantime...
I agree with your post.
Isn’t it interesting how so many polls are showing Democrats surging?
It won’t change the way I am voting.
Polls are great tools for analysis and lousy tools for behavior modification.
If the Dems in CT don’t bother voting, it doesn’t matter how many were “likely voters”. So we have to keep talking victory, working hard, and getting our side fired up!
Half? Don’t be selfish now, it’s your patriotic duty!
Because, like NY most that could have already moved to FL taking their anti-Democrat votes with them
We really need to write off the bluest blue states like Connecticut and Delaware. We can put a candidate on the ballot; but it is not worth any money or resources. Blumenthal is a weak candidate by any definition. If he cannot be defeated in this climate after his sorry debate performances and after lying about his military record then no one but a ‘rat has a chance in that state.
He has never created a job, but has created things that have not helped business and more.
CT will look like fools.
Oh well, she can run again in 2 years, next up Joe Liberman....
Well, if Rasmussen is saying this, it doesn’t look good.
Tax rates in Fairfield County have gone through the roof. I can’t imagine why those jerks continue to vote leftist.
People of Connecticutt: WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH YOU? ARE YOU RETARDED? DID YOU SEE THIS GUY IN THE DEBATES? DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE MULTIPLE TIMES HE BRAZENLY LIED ABOUT SERVING IN VIETNAM? HOW IN THE NAME OF A SHRED OF SANITY, DECENCY OR CIVIC DUTY CAN YOU VOTE FOR SUCH A COMPLETE BUFFOON, SLIMEBAG, LOWLIFE, USELESS PILE OF DUNG?
I’ve said it in the past: you can usually count on CT voters to consistently do the wrong thing.
Crooked is as crooked does. If that’s the best they can do (or want to do) then so be it. One thing for sure, he won’t have the Committee power his predecessor had.
We do....in taxes!
I’m in CT and I hope she wins, but I must have received upweards of 50 large, 4-color mailers for LM in the past 6 months. All uninspired mushy blather. Nothing creative, clever, hard-hitting or specific on the issues. 3eally makes me think she’s had mediocre and rapacious consultants who have made a mint while mishandling their deep-pockets candidate. I hope turnout can make up the difference.
States like CA and CT are hopelessly braindead.
Same thing in Delaware, New York, etc.
To win we need to be able to draw a lot of Democratic voters to the Republican side, and to accomplish this will usually require a polished, relatively moderate (particularly on social issues) candidate to represent us.
A state like California is probably hopeless no matter what we do. That state will have to collapse before Californians open their eyes - and even then they may cling to the nanny state and continue begging for bailout money. There are a generation or two of voters now in CA that are just utterly wedded to the social welfare state.
They get what they deserve
You said it! Now we may have to look at that walking skeleton for the next few years. I’m prayin’ for a miracle here. :(
Don’t give up hope. Remember Scott Brown in Massachusetts. He was way behind and won!
Because most of them don't think there is anything wrong with lying, that's a way of life with them.
Decent people need to migrate out of these cesspits.
FWIW, I've been polled by Rasmussen and Quinnipiac in the past, but not this year.
Didn’t Rasmussen punt and not make a prediction on the Brown-Coakley race earlier this year?
I know Rasmussen tends to be accurate, but the way people take his word as truth...eh...I don’t.
We’ll find out in 8 days.
These are NY rejects who would have voted for Schumer if they still lived there. Sheep that pull one lever.
They move there to avoid state income tax, but don’t pay attention to that. Libs are for the little people.
You may be right... I can't remember clearly though, do you?
All the 'RATs in CT are running with the same theme: "Republicans are going to privatize Social Security and Medicare. Dick Blumenthal, John Larson, et al, will PROTECT Social Security and Medicare." Just heard yet another radio ad for Little Dickie Blumenthal with that same LIE. Rasmussen must be polling a bunch of scared seniors, that's my only guess...
Looks like MA is more conservative than CT.
Yes, I think Rasmussen did punt on that one.
The problem is that far too many people in this country vote for a living.
Relax - next week it (hopefully) plays out and the good (or better) folks win. Then the real work begins.
Either way, they have no consciences to which to appeal. Really. There is no scandal from which a Democrat cannot recover because their morality is presumed to be absent by the electorate, who are neither surprised nor disappointed when it turns out to be so. They'll go right back to pulling the lever for the creep every time. Trust me: I'm from Massachusetts. I know.
That’s because all our candidates suck!! The media SAYS SO!!
Neither are you.
Why does Blumenthal have such a big lead? Or is it a bogus poll?
RE: Linda McMahon typifies the stupidity of Tea Partiers.
Did the Tea Party heartily endorse her? I seem to have missed that one...
RE: Why does Blumenthal have such a big lead? Or is it a bogus poll?
I find it quite funny that a lot of FReepers would heartily believe Rasmussen when the candidate they support is winning, and then suddenly doubt the poll (and call it bogus) when the results don’t turn out the way they want it to.
Hey, if it’s bad news, it’s bad news.
We might not like it, but Rasmussen has been one of the most accurate pollsters the past 3 or 4 election cycles.
I think it’s just wishful thinking on my part that people have come to their senses. It’s so diappointing to see that many have not.
This is The Peoples Republic of CT
Or is it a bogus poll?
I would like to think so. Bloomie is trotting out the father of a wrestler that killed his family a while back. Story at the link below.
They are NOT morons..CT is one of the wealthiest states with some of the biggest captains of industry living there. Liberalism is a mindset, it is a religion. One that just can’t be changed in one cycle.
Like I said, morons. Just like here in WA State, but we’ve got almost 50/50, morons vs. patriots
what are the odds Dino wins?
I’m going to say he wins, 51-49
" Praise Jesus. We need a friggin' miracle to elect this lying POS. If we don't
hold onto the damn Senate my stupid husband will look like a total screw-up."
