A new Quinnipiac poll indicates that maybe GOP Senate candidate Rob Simmons's decision to suspend and then restart his campaign wasn't such a good idea:

Former wrestling executive Linda McMahon is pulling away from Rob Simmons and now leads 50 - 28 percent, with 15 percent for Peter Schiff, compared to 47 - 30 percent in an August 4 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University. Today, 7 percent are undecided and 30 percent of those who choose a candidate say they might change their mind.

Quinnipiac also shows a toss-up in the Democratic gubernatorial primary:

The Democratic primary for governor in Connecticut is going down to the wire with businessman Ned Lamont at 45 percent and former Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy at 42 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll of Democratic likely primary voters released today

The Connecticut and Colorado primaries are tomorrow.
