I don't know about you, but I find all the polling this far out just a bit silly. I typically dislike answering poll questions because I'm so terribly busy all the time (LOL!) and even though I shouldn't, whenever I see "Political Call" show up on the caller ID, I let it go to directly to voice mail.
But some of you guys obviously do answer the questions, because here's another Quinnipiac Poll. And of course, I have some thoughts about it.
In the governor's race, Tom Foley has a significant lead over his challengers for the Republican nod, while Ned Lamont and Dan Malloy are in a closer contest. Malloy has gained slightly, but still trails Lamont by 10 points. This is the third straight poll where Lamont has led Malloy by double digits.
However, in both races the undecided voters make up the largest margins; 44% for the Democrats and 50% for the Republicans. Which indicates that the candidates are going to have more work to do to get their message out to the voters.
This poll only addressed the primaries, not the general election (probably because of the complexity of this poll) so we can expect to see another poll sometime soon that discusses potential November match ups.
For Attorney General, current Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz holds a commanding lead with 54% of Democratic voters over George Jepsen's 10% and the rest of the field 2% or less.
Apparently we also want to buy booze on Sundays, and we don't like Keno or tolls.
Regarding the booze, I worry a bit for the mom & pop liquor stores that would be greatly inconvenienced if they had to work an extra day each week. I've lived under our state's liquor sales policy all my life, and honestly, I don't think it's that big a deal to take one day off a week from buying booze.
I somehow still manage to sufficiently punish my liver with a mere six days of shopping; I can easily live without a seventh.
