Results of a poll released on Tuesday by Ramussen Reports shows U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy leading Linda McMahon by a 51-46 margin. The race appears to remain very close, as the margin of error is 4.5 percentage points.
Out of the 500 likely Connecticut voters surveyed, most of Murphy’s support came from so-called “leaners.” These voters aren’t particularly supportive of either candidate but said they are leaning towards voting for Murphy. Without these ”leaners,” Ramussen says Murphy would have a one-point lead.
When it comes to energy issues, Elizabeth Esty and Andrew Roraback agree on many points, reports the Register Citizen. Where they differ is on the controversial Keystone pipeline, which was quashed by President Barack Obama.
