    Rasmussen's 1st poll in CT shows McMahon leading by +3

    Isn't this supposed to be a super safe Dem seat??

    Hmmmm......

    Can't believe it but yep, Romney has essentially won Connecticut because of this as well.

    Naw - I don't go along with that.....

    Voters often don't vote for the same party in choosing a Prez and a Sen

    That and this is the first and so far only poll showing that.

    That being said it means another place the Dems have to play a bit of defense in, thus pulling money from actual swing states.

    you know prescott bush was senator from connecticut, right?

    and given mcmahon's money, i'm not surprised.

    but i wouldn't go by rasmussen, anyway. i'm more interested in RCP averages.

    [​IMG]Meh, if the poll is still +3 the Saturday before the election, there might be something here to notice. The conventions haven't even taken place yet.
