History Repeating Itself in Connecticut Governor's Race

Spencer Platt/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Four years ago, Dan Malloy and Tom Foley had the tightest election in Connecticut’s history, with Malloy winning the governor’s race by about 6,000 votes.

Now, the two look headed for a similarly tight brawl.

According to a new Quinnipiac poll out Wednesday, Gov. Malloy has 43 percent of likely voters while GOP challenger Foley has 42 percent. Independent candidate Joe Visconti has 9 percent.

The results are similar to Quinnipiac’s poll from earlier this month.

There is a wide gender gap so Malloy will know who to thank if he does win. He leads Foley 51 to 32 percent among women, while Foley leads Malloy 53 to 34 percent among men.

With just two weeks to go, 81 percent of Connecticut voters say their mind is made up.
