Democrat Chris Murphy has pulled ahead of Republican opponent Linda McMahon in the Connecticut Senate race, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University. Murphy leads McMahon 49 percent to 43 percent.
That's a sizable shift from the an October 4 poll showing McMahon up 48 percent to 47 percent. Murphy's new lead is the result of women and older voters shifting into the Democratic column.
The poll surveyed 1,412 likely voters and has a margin of error of +/- 2.6 percentage points
