Connecticut Governor: Malloy (D) Reaches 50% Support

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Democrat Dan Malloy now holds a 10-point lead over Republican Thomas Foley in the race to be Connecticut’s next governor.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Malloy picking up 50% of the vote, while Foley earns support from 40% when leaners are included. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) 

This also marks the first time Foley, a businessman and former ambassador to Ireland, has moved his support out of the 30s since his first match-up with Malloy in April, but the race remains Leans Democratic in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard.
