I find the numbers very interesting, too bad they are skewed way out of sync! This poll used a sample of 43% democrat, 26% republican and 32% other. The percentages that should have been used are 37% democrat, 21% republican and 42% other. I wonder what the real results should have read since the report is that the other is breaking by some 58% for the republican? I suspect a fairly close election.


Thank goodness the people in CT have woken up!I was so confused the last few months. It seemed as if the people of CT were falling for this woman's scam & that's all it was. I am a devout Republican and had the opportunity to speak with her about some issues that are close to my heart. I came away so discouraged because Linda McMahon was completely out of her depth as far as these issues went. Even my 6th grader was more knowledgeable than she! So sad, but I've also spoken with Chris Murphy and he is encyclopedic. He's not a movie star or sharp dresser, but he knows these issues inside and out. There's just no comparison. I'd love to vote for a Republican, but she's so out of the loop it's a little scary.


Pealerl: The 2008 electorate was 43% democrat 26% republican and 31% independent...so this polling sample was not biased.

I love you, imaginationland.

No that isn't right either. The One True Sample is 2% Democrats, 67% GOP and 31% other. Other is breaking for the GOP at a rate of Ham Sandwich to one, which guarantees not only a Republican landslide but also deliciousness!


My newly released JJJ poll has McMahon with an 18 point lead over Murphy. Like the recent UCONN/Hartford Courant poll and this PPP Poll my poll is truly unbiased, objective and fair too.


Only the Quinnipiac poll has McMahon ahead. The other three major polls show Murphy ahead by a margin of 2-6%. You GOP drones can quote imaginary statistics all you like, but the reality in THIS state is that even a respected Republican always has an uphill battle in any election, and McMahon is anything but. Smells like a dem victory to me...

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them
