President Obama continues to lead Mitt Romney in Connecticut.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds Obama with 51% support to 45% for Romney. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.

If the Dems decide to sit this one out, Romney may get closer than that!

Could you imagine if he won Connecticut?

Mirrors the earlier Ras poll showing Linda down by the same margin. Romney highly unlikely to win CT, but a 6 point deficit in this state implies BIG national problems for the Kenyan Marxist.

If he wins CT then many other blue states are up for grabs.

If the spread is only 6 in Conn for Obama, that spells big big trouble in a lot of states for Obama, no question of that, 6 in Conn, no way he wins swings states like Ohio.

Reagan won CT, so it is possible. If Romney forces Zero to spend campaign cash in CT, that is a very good thing.

If Mitt gets 40% in MA, it’s over for Zero.

LOL Obama is going down in flames. I’d love to see the polling for California since until recently I was bombarded with nothing but Obama Ads..if the undecideds go to Romney in Connecticut this is going to be one amazing election. No wonder Obama is already packing his bags for Hawaii

This is damn close for The People's Socialst Republik of Connecticut!

I haven't been polled by Rasmussen yet... but I have in past years. Smartest and most efficient poll I ever participated in. (I've been polled by Quinnipiac University and others)

Yes, and Mitt’s actually closer to a CT kind of guy—’moderate’, financial, and all of that.

If Mitt is only down 6, then Linda may be leading in the Senate race.

I live in CT. I saw my first Obama ad last night or Sunday. In parts of the state, you wouldn’t know Obama is running based on lawn signs.

With places like Bridgeport, Obama will likely win CT, but it will be close.

Murphy at 51? I am bummed. He strikes me as a uniquely unimpressive candidate from what little I’ve seen from out of state.

If you want THIS for four more years, vote for Obama..

Not quite. CT is a bit pokey counting votes. Not as bad as NY or PA, but not as fast as KY, NH, IN, VT and NH.

Connecticut is officially in the ballgame.

The ones who support Obama here are SEIU and illegal aliens..that is why Obama dedicated a statue for Caeser Chavez, he needs the Hispanic vote..gas prices are still ridiculously high here but people don’t seem to care, they will vote for the bozo anyway..but I haven’t seen ONE Obama sign here..bumper stickers on cars, yes I have seen a few, but absolutely ZERO yard signs

True but Romney will not win. Whether it’s closer than 2008 doesn’t mean much to me.

I get this shows that Romney has more support than McCain in places like CT, MI and PA, but they’ll go dem as usual.

Live here in the Hartford area. Very few bumper stickers, but since the debate the lawn signs on both sides are multiplying like weeds. It’s very town-dependent:

Avon (conservative): 2:1 Linda/Romney to Murphy/Obama
Simsbury (more liberal): about even Linda/Romney to Murphy/Obama
West Hartford (liberal): more Obama and Murphy.

The point: a lot of interest picking up, implying we have a battle. I’m still skeptical the Good Guys (and Gal) can pull it out. But it will be close.

It is close for blue CT.

What strikes me is O can’t muster a double digit lead in CT so he must be in deep doo doo elsewhere.

Even if Obama ends up winning CT..which I still think he will, the fact that he won by 23 percent in 2008 and is only winning now by 6 percent is VERY good news for Romney..it puts other blue states in play. If people start seeing Ads in blue states that Obama should have locked up its a good sign that Obama is in deep deep trouble

I live in Fairfield County, CT - here's a completely unscientific, totally subjective view of the situation based on my personal experience.

Lawn signs are out, but they are by and large for local candidates. Almost no presidential race signs at all. I'd say that is due to a couple of things - disgust with Obama, so no outright backing. Fear of vandalism by the Obama crowd, so no Romney signs. Folks here play their hands close to the vest and will do their talking on election day. That said, there are a lot of folks who will vote for Obama because Race is their number one issue.

My 20 year old son says his friends are disgusted with Obama because they just can't get work, but they see constantly changing "English as a second language" crews at McDonalds, Burger King, etc. This set of friends spans economic and racial demographics.

Catholics who were very much for Obama in 2008 have been taken to school and taught the real Catholic catechetical meaning of Social Justice which is based on the principle of subsidiarity. They've also had their faces shoved in the fight over religious freedoms and government intrusion. Many have been given pretty stern lectures about the difference between charity based on God's love, and redistribution based on governmental theft. Some, but not all have changed their minds about Obama.

Others, who were in that group who happily voted for the first African-American President, are now seeing the literal price of their choice. Gas and grocery prices through the roof, empty platforms at the train station for trains headed into New York City, card games on those trains which had lasted for 50 years (seriously) have ended. Folks see the effect, and people who would not normally consider a republican candidate are considering Romney because he isn't too radically right. Many are familiar with his time in neighboring Massachussetts.

There are a lot of business people around here, corporate employees who don't like the "Big Business is Bad" mantra spewed by the lefties. This group (of which I am one), would walk across hot coals to vote for Romney. Bain Capital is a known entity, and a respected one.

The tide is changing here. It may not change fast enough by election day, but it is changing. And some of us have been working hard at fostering that change.

This reminds me of Indiana in 2008. McCain led Obama 50-43 on October 7th, 2008 in Indiana and NO ONE thought he would lose a state Bush had won by 20 points. But things tightened all the way to election day and Obama snuck by.

Same here. Why would he waste money here? With the gas prices lately, I would hope Romney could pick up some votes.

If Zero is only 6 points up in CT, a state he won by 22.4 points and topped 60% in 2008, then I think he’s finished.

I think Romney will pick up some votes, but unfortunately this state is too full with illegals and union thugs for Romney to win..but meanwhile, Obama is making “jokes” about OJ, and he can’t even say it right, refers to a “Suburban” when it was a white ford bronco..you can see Obama unraveling right before our eyes

We are seeing wall-to-wall 0bama ads in Baltimore, starting around Labor Day. We only got a smattering of 0 ads in 2008, and those only a few days before the election. I don’t imagine that 0 is going to lose Maryland, but if he needs to spend ad money here it is a very good sign.

I think it’s a plus for Mitt, that he can’t take Massachusetts.

To win there, even as a favorite son; is not enough to overcome the liberal dogma.

I live in CT.

Obama has been holding around the 51% mark for a while here. He’s going to win.

Romney may get close, but short of some catastrophic breakdown that makes Obama’s first debate debacle look small by comparison, he won’t be able to win the state.

Having said that, I believe Linda McMahon will actually beat Chris Murphy for the Senate seat, by a similar margin of, say, two or three percentage points.

California is a socialist country. They are the ‘test state’ for what all of America is to become; 100% government operated. They raise taxes on small businesses in California because they WANT the private sector to leave so the government can take over!
