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.
