commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

From Merlin……Blumenthal seems to be a lock for Dodd's Connecticut senate seat……….

Hi Dog!

A new Statewide Survey in the Nutmeg State shows Attorney General Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) with large leads over his Republican Counterparts. He’s currently cruising to the United States Senate.

Rasmussen Survey

Connecticut Senate 2010

State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal (D)  54 %
Former U. S. Rep. Robert “Rob” Simmons (R)  35 %
Others  4 %
Undecided  7 %

State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal (D)  56 %
Linda McMahon (R)  36 %
Others  3 %
Undecided  4 %

Job Approvals

President Obama

Approve  51 %
Disapprove  49 %

Governor M. Jodi Rell (R)

Approve  67 %
Disapprove  33 %

Merlin’s Thought:

What else can I say? The Democrats don’t have to worry about that Senate Seat anymore. Remarkable is that Blumenthal is dominating his Opposition despite Obama being barely over 50 % JA here. Final Results on Election Night maybe a little bit narrower; Still I expect Blumenthal winning round 15 Points.

Quickie from Merlin and the Cook Report on Senate Races…..

The stuff is coming in fast and furious since the Scott Brown win….

This from Merlin…..

The Cook report shifts 2 Senate Races:

In Louisiana a shift from “Lean Republican” to “Likely Republican”

In Connecticut a shift from “Toss-Up” to “Lean Democrat”

Blumenthal has a 30 point lead in the Connecticut Senate race…….

This from Public Policy Polling ……..

Blumenthal is unusually popular, especially in hyper partisan times when voters like few politicians. 59% have a favorable opinion of him to just 19% who see him negatively. It’s no surprise that he’s liked by 71% of Democrats and 60% of independents, but even Republicans view him favorably by a 37/35 margin. It doesn’t take a lot of hands to count the number of Democratic politicians with positive numbers among GOP voters these days.

Blumenthal leads Rob Simmons 59-28, Linda McMahon 60-28, and Peter Schiff 63-23. It would take an epic collapse for him not to be Connecticut’s next Senator.

Nuff said!……..

Update:……here’s the Rasmussen Poll for the race from Merlin…..

Rasmussen confirms PPP. Blumenthal up BIG in Connecticut Senate
