Democratic Congressman Chris Murphy and Republican businesswoman Linda McMahon are in a near tie following their final debate in Connecticuts testy U.S. Senate race.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Connecticut Voters shows Murphy with 48% support to McMahons 47%. Two percent (2%) like some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
This race now moves back from Leans Democrat to a Toss-Up

If Brown loses, McMahon can replace him as the republican most likely to pull a Jim Jeffords to thwart conservatism.
The Dems are heavily favored to take the Lieberman seat. This is a safe Obama state so its a surprise to see them struggling.
Gonna be fun watching the squeams of anguish from the libs over this.......All those polls saying Conn is getting close overall may well be true. This could get interesting.
The last time CT went R was in Bush’s I day.
There are more of us here than you think. That commie sleaze bag murphy is going down............
I know, not expecting anything but it would be a delicious bonus that would probably make me fall off the sofa.
this just from twitter journo’s, waiting for confirmation.....
Rasmussen National: Romney 50 Obama 46 -
swing states Romney 50 Obama 45
The move is on.
And if Brown and McMahon lose, Harry Reid likely will stay in charge of the Senate and stop any legislation that comes out of a Republican House or from a Republican President Romney, including repealing Obamacare. The choice isn't some 100% conservative vs. a RINO in states like MA and CT, its Brown or McMahon or a raging liberal Dem like Warren.
First time in Rasmussen Romney has hit 50% - the Fat Lady has sung!
Other polls should soon follow suit. I can see Nate Silver cutting his wrists in despair! Its no longer possible to claim Gallup is an outlier. This is a game-changer!
If it only means that Harry Reid is removed as Senate majority leader, that is enough. We can repeal Obamacare if we run the Senate.
Linda signs everywhere here in CT. We can only hope the state bucks tradition. She is taking some flack today over a “cross the aisle” ad she’s running about Obama supporters voting for her. But maybe this type of pandering will work.
These are the same people that elected a guy who admittedly lied about his military record and got punked by Glenn Beck in an interview..
I’m not holding my breath.
I live in Connecticut. In the north central part of the state Linda signs heavily outweigh Murphy signs. Obama signs are few and far between, while Romney signs are very common.
