Poll: Gov. Malloy Takes Lead From GOP's Foley in Conn.

By    |   Monday, 03 Nov 2014 08:36 AM

The tides are turning in the favor of Connecticut’s governor, Democrat Dannel Malloy, according to the most recent Quinnipiac University poll, which shows Malloy with a three-point lead among likely voters over his Republican challenger Tom Foley.

Seven percent of likely voters remain undecided.

Less than a week ago, Foley held a one-point lead, with the same poll showing him with 46 percent of likely votes to Malloy’s 45 percent.

On Sunday, independent candidate Joe Visconti dropped out of the race, telling NBC Connecticut that he did so in an effort to help Foley.

“I took a look at the polls," Visconti said. "I was very concerned that Tom is in the fight for his life. Connecticut is in the fight of its life."

But it appears his decision may actually benefit Malloy, according to the polling data.

"Contrary to conventional wisdom, independent candidate Joe Visconti's last minute exit from the governor's race doesn't look like it will help Republican Tom Foley," said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz.
