KWIN-uh-pe-ack Poll is up - And so am I...
It is way too early in the morning but I figured I'd check for the latest Quinnipiac poll results for the Connecticut Governor's race:
In an early look at the 2010 election for Connecticut
Governor, Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz runs best among possible
Democratic challengers, trailing Republican incumbent Jodi Rell 46 - 40
percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
Gov. Rell leads 91 - 5 percent among Republicans and 56 - 26 percent
among independent voters, while Bysiewicz leads 74 - 12 percent among
Businessman Ned Lamont trails Rell 53 - 33 percent and Stamford Mayor
Dan Malloy loses 52 - 33 percent, the independent Quinnipiac
(KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds.
In a Democratic primary matchup, Bysiewicz gets 26 percent to 23
percent for Lamont, with 9 percent for Malloy. No other contender tops
With no candidate on the right to compare, all I can say
is that it looks like Susan Bysiewicz is the early front runner in the
race for the Democratic party nomination.
And it looks like Rell may still be able to squeak out on a bit of a high note barring anymore news of the scandal involving Dautrich - AKA: Rell's Brain - and Quinnipiac leaking out. Of course, this poll was, I believe, taken before the news of subpoenas going out in that scandal.
Voters are starting to trend towards a lower opinion of Connecticut
political ethics during the Rell years... Quite punch to the gut when
you consider Rowland was the previous Governor.
Why this trend? Might just be because of information:
The more information they have, the lower their opinion goes.
