From Ken Dixon, CT Post:
In the race for governor, Democrat Ned Lamont is ahead of Republican Bob Stefanowski by nearly four points in the new Sacred Heart University/Hearst Connecticut Media Poll.
While the Greenwich businessman has 40.8 percent support among likely voters, Stefanowski, an executive from Madison has 36.9 percent, the poll finds. The gap, however, is within the margin of error of 4.32 percent, meaning the race is essentially tied heading into the Labor Day weekend next week.
The poll finds that women support Lamont 49.3 percent to 30 percent for Stefanowski. But males in the group of 502 surveyed would vote for Stefanowski by 43.9 percent to Lamont’s 31.4 percent.
The crucial support of unaffiliated voters is virtually tied, at 29.8 percent each, for the two candidates. And 16.7 percent are undecided over whom to support on November 6. Nearly 82 percent of Republicans say they support Stefanowski, while about 77 percent of Democrats say they are backing Lamont.
