Connecticut: Democrats Ned Lamont, Chris Murphy polling strong

A new Gravis poll shows that Democrat Ned Lamont leads Republican Bob Stefanowski by nine percentage points in the Connecticut governor’s race. For Senate, Chris Murphy holds a strong lead over the GOP candidate, Matthew Corey: 54%-37%.

Lamont has 49 percent, compared to 40 percent for Stefanowski, with 12 percent uncertain.

Gravis randomly polled 606 registered, likely voters in Connecticut between August 24 and 27. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Gravis Marketing said that the poll “was conducted using interactive voice responses and an online panel of cell phone users,’’ adding that the results “are weighted by voting demographics.’’

Kendall Marr, the new spokesman for Stefanowski, said, “We’re not running this campaign on any one poll.’’ He added that the campaign’s internal polling shows “different numbers.’’

The latest poll comes at a time when other surveys have shown varied results. A Quinnipiac University poll showed Lamont with a 13-point lead, while Stefanowski’s internal polling and a Sacred Heart University survey — which use live interview calls by professional interviewers — showed a closer, single-digit race. Stefanowski’s campaign says the Sacred Heart and their own internal polls are more accurate because they polled likely voters, as opposed to registered voters.
