A Long Road for Peter Schiff, But His Numbers Improve

Rasmussen Reports writes:
Democratic Senator Chris Dodd's decision not to seek reelection remains the game-changer in Connecticut's U.S. Senate race. Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, who jumped into the race when Dodd quit, continues to hold commanding leads over his top Republican rivals.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state shows Blumenthal leading former Congressman Rob Simmons 58% to 32%. Blumenthal held a 19-point lead in this match-up last month and a 23-point lead in early January just after Dodd announced his decision not to run again.

Blumenthal leads Linda McMahon, former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, by 29 points, 60% to 31%. A month ago, he posted a 20-point lead over McMahon after leading by 24 points in the first Rasmussen Reports survey of the reconfigured race.

Peter Schiff, president of Euro Pacific Capital, trails the Democrat 57% to 27%. Schiff’s numbers against Blumenthal were worse in January when he was down by 36 points.
