Rasmussen: Foley tightens race with Malloy
The new survey prompted Rasmussen to move the Connecticut governor's race from "Solid Democrat" to "Leans Democrat," with Malloy leading 46 percent to 39 percent, with 12 percent undecided and three percent supporting others.
The one-day telephone survey of 500 voters was conducted Sept. 9. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
Malloy and Foley each were supported by about 75 percent of their own party members, and they are splitting the unaffiliated vote, according to Rasmussen.
