Campaign Notebook: 30 Percent of Voters Undecided in Senate Race

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.


A new poll from the University of Connecticut and Hartford Courant shows Chris Murphy with a 37-33 lead over Linda McMahon, but the 4.4 percentage margin of error essentially shows a tie.

The key to the election will be the undecided voters, who accounted for 30 percent of the people polled.

Fourth District  

Jim Himes (D) helped a local family acquire medals for their deceased family member who served in Vietnam, reports the Connecticut Post.

Steve Obsitnik (R): Although perhaps they’re not the most unbiased graders, the Obsitnik campaign released a report card for Jim Himes, giving him an F for “jobs” and the “economy.” According to the press release, “Congressman Himes has been caught cheating off Nancy Pelosi and Chris Murphy’s partisan voting records.  Their answers are identical 94% of the time.” There was no mention of a curve.
