CT SEN/PPP Poll: Murphy up by 4

Capitol Watch:

Public Policy Polling also released a poll and it shows slightly different results. That surveyby the left-leaning polling group, conducted on behalf of the League of Conservation Voters, puts Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Chris Murphy ahead of his Republican rival, Linda McMahon.

Murphy gets 48 percent and McMahon 44 percent, with 8 percent undecided. The survey of 881 Connecticut voters was conducted on Aug. 22 and 23. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.3 percent.

McMahon has a 45 percent favorable rating and a 47 percent unfavorable rating. Murphy was viewed favorably by 39 percent and unfavorably by 41 percent.

But the good news for Murphy is that 20 percent said they were not sure of their opinion, which suggests his numbers could change. Just 8 percent said they were unsure about their opinion of McMahon.

Digging deeper into the cross tabs, the poll broke down each candidate's support by gender, race and age. Forty seven percent of white voters favor Murphy; 45 percent go with McMahon. Among other races, the split is 48 percent Murphy, 44 percent McMahon.

McMahon loses by a few percentage points in every age category except voters age 46 to 65. And once again, there's a gender gap: Murphy gets 55 percent of the women's vote and McMahon gets 54 percent of the male vote.

Like I stated in an earlier post, we can not take the race for senate for granted.

...you know what to do.
