Rasmussen: Foley Up 7 Over Malloy

Posted to: Election 2014, Poll

Rasmussen Reports conducted a telephone survey of 750 likely Connecticut voters this week and found that if the election were held today Republican Tom Foley would receive 45 percent of the vote and Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy would receive 38 percent.

Only seven percent of those surveyed would prefer to vote for another candidate and 10 percent were undecided — but the poll questions never mentioned any of the third-party candidates.

Republican Joe Visconti successfully petitioned his way onto the ballot this week and the Secretary of the State’s office is still tallying the petitions submitted by Jonathan Pelto.

The poll has a 4 percent margin of error.

Ah yes Rasmussen, the Republicans favorite pollster. Let’s wait for Q & P to speak before jumping to conclusions.

Quinnipiac is not as accurate as Rasmussen. However before us Foley supporters get excited the 3rd party people are not included and 10 percent arent sure.

Personally, I’m waiting for the poll that will be conducted on November 4 to tell me with 100% certainty who’s going to be Governor for the next four years.

Foley up 7% for simply speaking in generalities?!?

Foley up 7% for not even issuing any formal platform?!?

Foley up 7% for having a political web site that has nothing of substance on it?!?

Voter apathy and 30 second attention spans folks.

How many times have we done this before?

No one to blame but ourselves as we continue to lower and lower the bar for what public service should be about.
