Thanks to a flip among independent voters, Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon cut Democrat Dick Blumenthal's lead to just 3 percent.
In Quinnipiac's poll of likely voters in Connecticut, McMahon trails Blumenthal 46-49 percent. That's closer than the Q poll on September 14, which had shown Blumenthal leading 51-45 percent.
In the latest poll, independent voters flipped from Blumenthal to McMahon.
Two weeks ago, Blumenthal split independent voters with McMahon, 47-46.
In today's poll, McMahon is pulling away among independent voters, 49-44 percent.
