Courant/UCONN (2nd District):
The Q-Poll is not up on the Quinnipiac website yet. It was taken after Monday's debate. For all the noise made by and about Alan Schlesinger this week, it seems that his effect on the race is still negligible. That's bad news for Ned Lamont, and excellent news for Joe Lieberman.
The race in the 2nd District is exactly what you would expect: a dead heat (the margin of error is 3.5%). This one is going to come down to who can turn out the most voters, or perhaps which way the national winds are blowing. Should be great to watch.
Update The Q-Poll is up on their website. It also polls the gubernatorial race:
Although the poll claims an upswing for DeStefano (a gain of about three points, give or take), it's clear that DeStefano is so far out of this thing that there really isn't much hope. This poll was taken after the first debate with Rell, and it's unlikely that his performance at the second debate will win him much more support. Rell has the support of 32% of Democrats, 91% of Republicans and, most importantly, 68% of independents.
