HARTFORD, Conn. – Republican Tom Foley told a radio talk show host Wednesday afternoon that he was never ahead of Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in a Quinnipiac University poll last month.

Foley told WTIC 1080 AM host Will Marotti, during Marotti’s last broadcast, that Quinnipiac University got their numbers wrong in the Sept. 10 poll and the poll released Wednesday by the university that showed the race was a dead heat was more accurate.

“Quinnipiac made a mistake in their poll on September 10th,” Foley said during the broadcast. “They had the — they inverted the independents and the Dems on the turnout model, and when you take the September information and you put it in the turnout model that they used this morning, we were one up. So it’s gone from one up to even.”

    Smoke and mirrors, to flush out the anxious voters, nice try Foley, you aren’t the right guy to run the state, no matter WHAT the polling says.

    The debate last night was a toss up. Sure looks like a close race — but the Republicans just aren’t positioned to win statewide anymore.

    Yeah too many freeloaders statewide, they won’t vote out the hand that feeds, clothes and gives them all kinds of free stuff, maybe I’ll join them.
