Poll: Connecticut Governor's Race Still Deadlocked


The latest Quinnipiac University poll shows the race for governor in Connecticut remains deadlocked.The poll of likely voters released Wednesday shows Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Republican Tom Foley tied with 43 percent. A survey released Oct. 8 showed the same figures.

Conservative petitioning candidate Joe Visconti was favored by 7 percent. Six percent were undecided.

The poll conducted between October 22 and 27 found that if Visconti were not in the race, Foley would lead by a statistically insignificant 46 percent to 45 percent.

Poll director Douglas Schwartz cited a wide gender gap as Malloy leads Foley by 17 points among women and Foley is ahead by 17 points among men.

The survey of 838 likely voters has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
