Lamont leading, poll finds

A Quinnipiac University Poll released today shows that Ned Lamont SOM ’80 tops the wide Democratic field in the race for governor. Out of seven possible Democratic candidates, 27 percent of registered Democratic voters would vote for Lamont, while 11 percent would vote for former Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy.

In possible matchups for the general election, Lamont would beat Republican candidate and former U.S. Ambassador to Ireland Tom Foley by a margin of two percentage points, while Malloy would beat him by a margin of four. But Lamont would be a stronger candidate against Lt. Governor Michael Fedele, beating him by a margin of nine percentage points. Malloy would beat Fedele by a margin of six percentage points.

Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz ’83 is leading the Democratic field for attorney general by 52 percentage points over the nearest candidate.
