Poll: Connecticut Senate Race Now Too Close to Call
Hartford, Conn. (AP) - A new poll shows that Democrat Richard Blumenthal's lead in Connecticut's U.S. Senate race over Republican Linda McMahon has evaporated to within the survey's margin of error.
The Quinnipiac (KWIHN'-uh-pee-ak) University poll released Tuesday shows Blumenthal, the state attorney general, with a 49 percent to 46 percent lead over McMahon, former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment.
The survey of 1,083 likely voters has a sampling margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
Blumenthal's lead in the poll two weeks ago was 6 percentage points. In a different poll of registered voters in March, Blumenthal's lead was 33 points.
Poll Director Douglas Schwartz calls Blumenthal's lead "statistically insignificant" and says he should be concerned about McMahon's momentum.
