Republicans would beat Dodd, poll shows

It’s not looking good for Democratic incumbent Sen. Christopher Dodd in the 2010 senatorial election, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released today.

If the election were held today, three Republicans — former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons, former executive for World Wrestling Entertainment Linda McMahon and former U.S. Ambassador to Ireland Tom Foley — each would beat Dodd, the poll shows. Simmons would have the widest margin of victory, beating Dodd by 11 percentage points. State Sen. Sam Caligiuri (R-Waterbury) tied Dodd in the poll.
