Tom Foley goes to the Republican convention next week as the public favorite for the GOP nomination for governor, tied in the general-election match up with the Democratic incumbent, Dannel P. Malloy, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
Foley, the 2010 nominee, was favored by 39 percent of GOP voters, with five others in single digits: Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, 9 percent; Senate Minority Leader John P. McKinney, 8 percent; Martha Dean, 5 percent, Joseph Visconti, 4 percent; and Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti, 3 percent.
The undecided vote in the GOP race was 28 percent.
In general election match ups, Malloy and Foley were deadlocked at 43 percent, while McKinney and Boughton performed nearly as well, trailing Malloy by 4 and 5 points, respectively, despite lacking Foley’s name recognition.
