CT SEN PPP Poll: Blumenthal leads by 12 points

Public Policy Polling just released their latest poll on the senate race that shows Richard Blumenthal leading Linda McSteroids by 12 points.
The race may be closer than it was six months ago but the truth remains: Richard Blumenthal is one of the strongest Democratic Senate candidates in the country, Linda McMahon is one of the weakest Republican ones, and Blumenthal holds a double digit lead. It's 53-41 in PPP's newest look at the race.

Blumenthal's favorability rating is 53/39, making him the second most popular Democratic Senate candidate in a competitive race behind only Joe Manchin in West Virginia. That would make him a tough opponent in a blue state even for a strong Republican opponent but that McMahon is not.

Her numbers are the exact inverse of Blumenthal's with only 39% of voters seeing her positively and 53% having an unfavorable opinion. The only Republican Senate candidates that our most recent polls found with worse favorability numbers than McMahon were Joe Miller, Sharron Angle, and Christine O'Donnell.

Fewer than half of voters in the state- 47%- think McMahon is fit to hold public office. McMahon would have to make serious in roads with Democrats to have any chance at winning the race but only 13% of them have a favorable view of her.

You can read the poll data below the fold...

UPDATE: The man who deceives his readers by inflating his web traffic stats also conducted a poll that has Blumenthal in the lead by double digits.

Basically, McMahon wins the conservatives and that's it (4.00 / 1)
Does anyone seriously think there are that many self-described conservatives in Connecticut to overcome Blumenthal's large advantages among Liberals and Moderates?

No? Me either.

get out the vote (4.00 / 1)
When one party is publicly banking on a low turnout, you know that they're in trouble.  Once people really think about the choice and sending a woman who has kicked people in the crotch on TV to represent our state for 6 YEARS in the US Senate, I don't think it will be close.
