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.

These numbers move the race back to solid Democrat from leans Democrat in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.

Just over a week ago, it was a 50-to-45 percent race, Blumenthal’s smallest lead since May. In 12 surveys conducted since January, Blumenthal has received between 47 percent and 60 percent of the vote. McMahon’s support has been in the 31 percent to 45 percent range over the same period.
