Monday Night RAW (Data): McMahon Pulls Within Five

Don't look now, but the Connecticut Senate race is practically begging to be moved into the "tossup" category:

Democrat Richard Blumenthal now holds just a five-point lead over Republican Linda McMahon in Connecticut’s race for the U.S. Senate.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds Blumenthal with 50% support and McMahon with 45% when leaners are included. One percent (1%) favor some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. To see survey questions, click here.

This is the closest the race has been since May when the New York Times detailed in an article how Blumenthal has been embellishing his military record in public statements over the years.

Dick Blumenthal probably hasn't been this nervous since he was on the ground in Vietnam, heroically risking his life while battling the Vietcong.  In other words, he's never been this nervous.
