President Barack Obama still has a pretty solid chance of winning Connecticut this November. But, according to the latest poll information, his margin of victory might not be as great as it was back in 2008.
According to the latest Public Policy Polling Institute numbers, 51 percent of voters in Connecticut said they would vote for Obama if the election were held today, versus 43 percent for the presumed Republican candidate, Mitt Romney. Six percent said they were unsure.
The 8-point lead would clearly mean a victory in this state, although that’s a significant drop when compared to Obama’s victory in Connecticut back in 2008. That year, he won the race here by 23 points against John McCain, the PPP pointed out.
The polling agency has a full breakdown here, including how Obama is doing among different racial and economic demographics.
So, with the latest data out, it’s time we do our own polling and find out where our Patch readers stand.
