Joseph Courtney (D) will visit senior citizens at local senior centers in Eastern Connecticut today, tomorrow and Friday to tout the Democrats' plans for Social Security and Medicare. Joining him will be State Sen. Edith Prague, D-Columbia, a well-known champion for the rights of senior citizens.
Results of a poll released on Tuesday by Ramussen Reports shows U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy leading Linda McMahon by a 51-46 margin. The race appears to remain very close, as the margin of error is 4.5 percentage points.
Out of the 500 likely Connecticut voters surveyed, most of Murphy’s support came from so-called “leaners.” These voters aren’t particularly supportive of either candidate but said they are leaning towards voting for Murphy. Without these ”leaners,” Ramussen says Murphy would have a one-point lead.
