Some very good news today out of Connecticut courtesy of Quinnipiac University’s latest poll:
In the Connecticut governor's race, Democrat Ned Lamont leads Republican Bob Stefanowski 46 – 33 percent, with 4 percent for independent candidate Oz Griebel and 1 percent for the Libertarian Party's Rod Hanscomb, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released today.
In a head-to-head matchup, Lamont tops Stefanowski 53 – 37 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.
In the four-way race, Lamont leads Stefanowski 50 – 27 percent among women. Men are divided with 40 percent for Lamont and 39 percent for Stefanowski. Democrats go to Lamont over Stefanowski 81 – 3 percent. Stefanowski leads Lamont 83 – 8 percent among Republicans and 37 – 30 percent among independent voters.
Connecticut voters give Lamont a 44 – 28 percent favorability rating. Stefanowski gets a divided 33 – 31 percent favorability rating, with 35 percent who haven't heard enough about him to form an opinion.
For Griebel, 83 percent haven't heard enough to form an opinion and 91 percent haven't heard enough about Hanscomb.
A total of 70 percent of Connecticut voters are “very satisfied” or “somewhat satisfied” with the choice of candidates for governor, while 25 percent are “somewhat dissatisfied” or “very dissatisfied.”
“Ned Lamont is leading Bob Stefanowski by double digits thanks to huge support among women and Connecticut's status as a true blue state. But there's a lot of time until Election Day, and a number of undecided voters up for grabs,” said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, PhD.
The poll also has U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D. CT) leading Matthew Corey (R. CT) 59-31. Legalizing marijuana, $15 minimum wage and U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D. CT) all have high numbers of support. Donald Trump and Governor Dannel Malloy (D. CT) are extremely unpopular. Let’s make sure the Blue Wave doesn’t miss Connecticut.
