Poll: McMahon Gaining on Blumenthal

Over in Connecticut, Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon is cutting down the lead against Democrat Dick Blumenthal.

According to Quinnipiac, McMahon trails Blumenthal by six points, 51 - 45 percent with 3 percent undecided.

Blumenthal, the state's attorney general, had lead by 9 points in an earlier poll from Rasmussen and as much as 10 points in a Quinnipiac poll from July. McMahon, a former executive with the World Wrestling Entertainment, has been bombarding voters with flyers, attacking Blumenthal's credibility, a lingering issue from his misstatements about having served "in" Vietnam.
