Poll: Connecticut Governor's Race in a Dead Heat

By    |   Wednesday, 29 Oct 2014 07:48 AM

The contest for who will become the next governor of Connecticut is tied between Democratic incumbent Gov. Dannel Malloy and Republican challenger Tom Foley, a new poll has found.

According to a Quinnipiac poll conducted Oct. 22-27 of 838 likely voters, each candidate has 43 percent support. Independent Joe Visconti draws 7 percent, while 6 percent of voters continue to be undecided.

The same poll released last week gave Malloy a one-point lead among likely voters of 43 percent to 42 percent, within the survey's margin of error.

Support for each candidate breaks sharply along partisan lines. Republicans support Foley by 87 percent to 7 percent, while Democrats support Malloy by 82 percent to 9 percent.

Male and female voters are sharply divided as well. Fifty-two percent of women surveyed said they would vote for Malloy while 51 percent of men say they are voting for Foley.

"Will Connecticut visits by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama in the final week of the campaign motivate the Democratic base to turnout in an election where they otherwise might stay home? And will that be enough to put Malloy ahead?," said Douglas Schwartz, director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"Or will New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie's appearance on behalf of Foley get Republicans fired up more?"
