The guber primary between Ned Lamont and Dan Malloy has gotten much tighter, according today’s Q Poll. Four weeks ago Lamont had a 17 point lead among registered Dems. It’s now 9 based on likely Dem voters, a more accurate sample of where the race stands. What does this mean? It’s going to be some fight. From the Q Poll:
Among likely Democratic primary voters, businessman Lamont leads former Stamford Mayor Malloy 46 – 37 percent, with 16 percent undecided.
Likely Democratic primary voters are more solid in their support, but 50 percent of those who select a candidate say they might change their mind.
Malloy gets a 50 – 8 percent favorability among likely Democratic voters, with 40 percent who haven’t heard enough to form an opinion. Lamont’s favorability is 60 – 12 percent.
The race is closer on the Democratic side, where Malloy is within single digits. This race could go down to the wire.
