Democrat Richard Blumenthal has moved further ahead of Republican Linda McMahon in Connecticut’s U.S. Senate race, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll tallied the night after their first head-to-head debate.
The Oct. 5 statewide telephone survey of 750 likely voters shows Blumenthal, the state’s longtime attorney general, picking up 54 percent of the vote. McMahon, the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, draws support from 43 percent. Only 3 percent of voters are undecided at this point.
