Rasmusen Poll Reveals Early Gubernatorial Leaders

The following statistics are being reported by CTBOB on the Connecticut Governors race. Bob has reported the following at his blog

"On Wednesday Rasmussen published the results of a telephone poll of 500 likely voters in Connecticut, and here's the results:

Ned Lamont (D) 42
Tom Foley (R) 35
Some other 11
Not sure 13
Dan Malloy also has a lead, although slightly smaller, over Foley:
Dan Malloy (D) 38
Tom Foley (R) 35
Some other 11
Not sure 16

Margin of error is 4.5%, putting the two Democratic candidates in a theoretical dead heat over Foley. The last Rasmussen poll, from April 1st, showed Foley with a slight lead over both Lamont and Malloy.

The general consensus among bloggers I've talked with is that Rasmussen slants somewhat conservative, because telephone polls typically are limited to calls to people who own land-line phones. A larger percentage of young people and college-age students only have a cell phone. So for the sake of argument, you can probably figure there's at least a several percent older (and thus more likely conservative) demographic being polled."

To add to this statement by CTBob I would like to add that the nature of this years election will require the winner of the Gubernatorial race to deal with the impact of the global fiasco and the 1.6 Quadrillion in worldwide derivative failures. The future economy of CT will be one that requires our new Governor to return our state to its farming roots amid an emerging Fascist philosophy.

Once the stimulus dollars run out, (I.E. extended unemployment, 40 Million people on Food Stamps, $8,500.00 home buyer credits, $4,500.00 cash for clunkers, on the job training programs and bail out after bailout for Banks, automakers, etc. etc..) Milford will be "put out to pasture" along with every other town in the state of Connecticut. We need a truly miraculous Governor I pray that we get one.
