HARTFORD, Conn. – Polls have not been kind to Republican gubernatorial primary candidate John McKinney. But McKinney, who’s hoping for an upset next week, says no one expected Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to survive the 2010 primary.
McKinney was badly trailing his primary opponent, 2010 Republican nominee Tom Foley, in the last survey published by Quinnipiac University in May. Since then, he’s been ignored altogether by a pair of surveys published last week.
Republicans will head to the polls to pick their gubernatorial candidate on Aug. 12.
Asked about the polls at a press conference last week, McKinney said they are notoriously inaccurate in primary elections.
