Roberti leads the 5th?


The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee does not comment on its internal polling data, but sources say the national campaign arm of House Democrats has polled voters in Connecticut's 5th District-and Dan Roberti is in the lead.


Little is known about the DCCC poll, other than that it puts Roberti ahead of Esty and Donovan. Stephen Carter, a regional spokesman for the committee, would not comment on its existence.

But a Roberti win next week would be something of an upset in Connecticut, where he was virtually unknown until recently. Roberti has never held an elected office.


Both the Esty and Roberti campaigns have been tight-lipped about their own internal polling data and neither side wanted to comment on the DCCC poll. The race is believed to be very close with just seven days until the primary.
