HARTFORD, Conn. – In a two-way race for governor, Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is up 3 percentage points over Republican challenger Tom Foley one day before the election, according to the Quinnipiac University poll.

In 2010, Foley was up 3 points over Malloy, who squeaked out a victory by less than one half of one percent of the vote. The day before that election, polls suggested that Foley had 48 percent of the vote to Malloy’s 45 percent.

Monday’s poll found Malloy has 47 percent of the vote to Foley’s 44 percent, suggesting the departure of unaffiliated candidate Joe Visconti on Sunday has done little to help Foley.

The poll found Malloy has a 3-point lead in the poll without Visconti in the race. The third-party candidate dropped out of the race Sunday in an effort to help Foley, who he said was “slipping” in the polls.

    The Republicans can’t even run a candidate to beat Malloy in this year of intense dissatisfaction with his policies and the state’s economy. We are watching the death of the Republican Party as a state-wide force.
