A quick poll of 500 likely Connecticut voters yesterday by the Rasmusseun Poll now finds Attorney General Richard Blumenthal with only a nominal 3-point lead over Linda McMahon, well within the margin of error of 4.5 percent, compared to two weeks ago when he was up by 13 points. McMahon’s camp said today that it’s the result of the damaging New York Times story about his misstatements about his service with the Marine Corps Reserves during the Vietnam War.
The Associated Press today though, reported that the video of a Blumenthal when he claimed to have served in Vietnam, was preceeded, at the start of his speech, by Blumenthal saying that he served during the “era,” an important distinction that he laid out right away. They found the full video on the McMahon’s Youtube page.
Here’s the link to the poll.
