A couple other pollsters show Democrat Dick Blumenthal with a healthy lead in the Connecticut Senate race, but Rasmussen shows Republican Linda McMahon trailing by just five points:
The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Blumenthal, Connecticut’s longtime attorney general, picking up 51% of the vote. McMahon, the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, earns the vote from 46%. One percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, while three percent (3%) are undecided.
