HARTFORD, Conn. – An Internet-based poll by the New York Times, CBS News and a research firm called YouGov suggests that Republican Tom Foley has a 42 to 33 percent advantage over incumbent Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.
The Connecticut results are a small part of a nationwide online polling project, the first wave of which was published Sunday in the New York Times.
The results were based on Internet respondents rather than more traditional phone-based polling used by institutions like Quinnipiac University.
Foley, the Republican convention endorsed candidate, is competing in an Aug. 12 primary election with Senate Minority Leader John McKinney.
