HARTFORD, CT (AP / WCBS 880) - A new poll shows Democratic Attorney General Richard Blumenthal’s lead over Republican Linda McMahon has grown to double-digits in the U.S. Senate race in Connecticut.

The Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday shows Blumenthal with an 11 percentage point lead among likely voters over McMahon, the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment.

A September 28 poll from Quinnipiac gave Blumenthal a three percentage point lead.

Poll director Douglas Schwartz says Blumenthal has stopped McMahon’s momentum in the race to fill the seat now held by U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd.

He says Blumenthal’s surge is fueled by support from women, Democrats and independent voters.

The telephone poll of 1,119 likely voters has a sampling margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
