Democrat Dannel P. Malloy show a close race between Republican Thomas C. Foley in the race for the governor’s seat, the latest Quinnipiac University poll shows."

Read the Poly for yourself:
8 percent are undecided and 26 percent of those who do name a candidate say they could change their mind by Election Day. This is the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University's first general election likely voter survey in Connecticut in this election cycle and can not be compared to earlier surveys of registered voters.

In today's survey, conducted by telephone with live interviewers, Malloy leads 86 - 8 percent among Democrats, while Foley leads 83 - 14 percent among Republicans.

Independent voters split 42 - 42 percent. Malloy leads 53 - 38 percent among women and 48 - 43 percent among men.

Read the Poll yourself. It would seem that if folks don't actually know either candidate. So I would assume that folks will vote, but when folks vote, I would have to say in our current business environment, our economic situation, with a government that is in fiscal crisis, overextended, with no revenue, a time like this”. The questions folks will ask is who doing you want managing your money, your business, and your government, a Republican or a Democrat? If folks don't know either candidates, what the answer.

"The races for Governor and U.S. Senate in Connecticut are both in play, with the Democrats holding on to single-digits leads," said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, PhD. "The big difference between the Governor's race and the Senate race is that the gubernatorial candidates are much less well-known than the Senate candidates. Tom Foley and Dan Malloy will have a tough time competing for attention with Linda McMahon and Attorney General Richard Blumenthal."
