In the first public poll of 2014, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is in a dead heat with Tom Foley, the Republican he narrowly defeated in 2010, according to a survey released today by Quinnipiac University. Both are supported by 42 percent of voters.
Foley leads the five-way contest for the GOP nomination with 36 percent to 11 percent for his closest rival, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, the nominee for lieutenant governor in 2010. Senate Minority Leader John P. McKinney of Fairfield saw his support shrink to 3 percent.
Malloy, a first-term Democrat whose numbers have varied little since taking office in January 2011, leads in matchups with Boughton and every other Republican, including McKinney, by between 6 and 11 points.
“Haven’t we seen this movie before?” said Douglas Schwartz, director of the poll.
