New Poll Shows Murphy Leading Johnson

A new poll released Tuesday shows Democratic state senator Chris Murphy leading Republican incumbent Nancy Johnson. Of 600 likely voters surveyed, Murphy leads Johnson 38%-35%, with 28% undecided. The poll was conducted by the Working Families Party, which has officially endorsed Chris Murphy.

This poll represents some of the first numbers we have seen from this race. The results only confirm what was already expected; Nancy Johnson is in serious danger of losing her bid for a 13th term. It is quite amazing for a 24-year incumbent to be trailing a challenger at such an early stage in the race. Despite already spending over $1 million and smearing her opponent with negative attack ads, Johnson remarkably still finds herself behind Murphy, who has yet to air a single TV ad. Clearly, Connecticut voters simply aren't buying Johnson's same-old Washington rhetoric. People are ready for a change and want someone who will actually listen to the residents of this state, instead of Washington lobbyists and special interests. Connecticut has seen enough of Nancy Johnson, and voters are letting their collective voices be heard.
