From Q Poll:
A 22-percentage point lead among women in the Connecticut governor’s race gives Democrat Ned Lamont a 47 – 39 percent likely voter lead over Republican Bob Stefanowski, with 11 percent for independent candidate Oz Griebel, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released today.
Women back Lamont over Stefanowski 53 – 31 percent, with 13 percent for Griebel. Men tip Republican 46 – 41 percent, with 9 percent for Griebel. This is the first survey of this race among likely voters by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll and can not be compared to earlier surveys of registered voters.
Lamont tops Stefanowski 87 – 3 percent among Democrats, with 9 percent for Griebel. Stefanowski leads Lamont 90 – 2 percent among Republicans, with 5 percent for Griebel. Independent voters go 42 percent for Lamont, 36 percent for Stefanowski and 18 percent for Griebel.
With 27 days to go, 21 percent of Connecticut likely voters who name a candidate say they might change their mind.
Connecticut likely voters don’t like their candidates very much, giving Lamont a divided 44 – 45 percent favorability rating and giving Stefanowski a slightly negative 39 – 44 percent. For Griebel, 72 percent haven’t heard enough about him to form an opinion.
“Ned Lamont is ahead in the Connecticut governor’s race, but with 27 days to go, Bob Stefanowski is within striking distance,” said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, PhD.
