Sure doesn’t sound like a 15 point lead to me. Frank Luntz brought his focus group to Connecticut last night to get Connecticans response to the McMahon/Blumy race. Frankly, I was a little shocked.
Remember two things. Luntz is very careful how he selects participants, by age, party affiliation and likely voters. They are always unpredictable and this one was too, by it’s honesty. You get the feeling this group is not crazy for either candidate but Linda McMahon score big on a big Blumenthal gaff … jobs.
In light of the crazy Suffolk poll, which my guess will turn out to be an embarrassment, this is some pretty head turning stuff. Even more stunning, after running Blumenthal’s ad attacking McMahon on her WWE connection, people didn’t seem to care that much.
