Linda McMahon slightly edging out opponent in polls for Senate seat

In the latest poll released by Quinnipiac University revealed that the Senate race between former WWE CEO Linda McMahon and her opponent Chris Murphy is pretty much dead even, with McMahon edging out Shays 48% to 47% among likely voters.

McMahon has spent a lot of money in television advertising and 84% of those polled have seen Linda’s TV ads versus the 64% who said they saw Murphy’s ads. Two thirds of the voters polled said that McMahon’s ads are “very” or “somewhat” effective, while half said the same for her opponent’s ads.

“McMahon has done a good job defining Murphy, who was not well known statewide, in a negative way,” said Douglas Schwartz, director of the Quinnipiac poll. “McMahon’s blanketing the airwaves with TV ads appears to be working.”

This is Linda McMahon’s second shot at the U.S. Senate after two years ago she lost her election to her Democrat opponent by 11% despite spending over $50 million of her own money in the campaign.
