BREAKING: Q Poll Says CT-Gov. Race is Too Close to Call

Stefanowski is down only four points to Lamont. In Quinnipiac's two other polls of the race, Stefanowski was down eight and 13 points.

One week before Election Day, Republican Bob Stefanowski has made the race with Democrat Ned Lamont too close to call, according to Quinnipiac University.

Quinnipiac released the results of their final of three Connecticut gubernatorial polls on Tuesday morning. The results show Stefanowski surging, and retaking a lead among independent voters that Lamont had just three weeks ago.

Here’s how Quinnipiac’s measures of the CT-Gov. race have tracked since August:

  • August 23, 2018: Lamont 46 percent, Stefanowski 33 percent, Griebel 4 percent (Lamont +13)
  • October 10, 2018: Lamont 47 percent, Stefanowski 39 percent, Griebel 11 percent (Lamont +8)
  • October 30, 2018: Lamont 47 percent, Stefanowski 43 percent, Griebel 7 percent (Lamont +4)

The poll’s margin of error is four percent, meaning Stefanowski’s four-point deficit is well within the margin of error.

Here’s how the battle for independent voters has changed since August:

  • August 23, 2018: Stefanowski 37 percent, Lamont 30 percent, Griebel 7 percent (Stefanowski +7)
  • October 10, 2018: Lamont 42 percent, Stefanowski 36 percent, Griebel 18 percent (Lamont +6)
  • October 30, 2018: Stefanowski 43 percent, Lamont 38 percent, Griebel 13 percent (Stefanowski +5)

The Quinnipiac poll tracks with other recent polls, from Sacred Heart and Public Policy Polling (PPP), that showed a tightening race.
