HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A new Quinnipiac University poll in the Connecticut U.S. Senate race shows that the race between Democrat Richard Blumenthal and Republican Linda McMahon continues to be tight.

The poll released Tuesday shows that Blumenthal leads McMahon 51 percent to 45 percent among likely voters in the Nov. 2 election.

Blumenthal, the state’s attorney general, had a lead of 10 percentage points among registerd voters in last month’s poll over McMahon, the former chief executive of World Wrestling Entertainment. Blumenthal had a 17-point lead in July’s poll.

Three percent of likely voters are undecided in the latest survey, and 11 percent say they could change their minds by Election Day.

The poll surveyed 875 likely voters from Sept. 8 to 12 and has a sampling margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points.
