Emerson College Polling Society Poll, US SEN: Blumenthal 54, Carter 33

Cross post from HatCityBLOG

With less than 60 days till election day, the latest poll from Emerson College Polling Society has U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal set for a VERY easy re-election win over his opponent Dan Carter.

Emerson College Polling Society

In Connecticut’s U.S. Senate race, Democratic incumbent Richard Blumenthal holds a wide lead over Republican state representative Dan Carter, 54% to 33%. Almost six out of 10 likely voters (57%) view Blumenthal favorably, and 34% have an unfavorable opinion of him. Voters are not familiar with Carter. His favorable/unfavorable ratio is 9% to 18% with 42% undecided about him and 30% who have never heard of him.

Sixty days till election day and thirty percent of voters have no clue who Dan Carter is?

Someone please explain to me again why Dan Carter is running against Richard Blumenthal?
