If the last couple of polls are to be believed, Tom Foley has royally squandered a gift of an election, handing his lead back to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. This happened for two reasons: first, Tom Foley is a lousy candidate, and second, Dan Malloy is very good at attacking his opponent.

None of these are particularly inspiring reasons. Such is political life in 2014.

Let’s take a look at these polls, first. The most recent Quinnipiac poll and a September YouGov poll both show the race tied, while a survey from Public Policy Polling gave Malloy an eight point lead. This is a stark contrast to the past few months of polling, which mostly painted a pretty dismal picture for Malloy.
