Connecticut a Battleground State?

From Rasmussen Reports

"The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Connecticut finds Barack Obama attracting 47% of the vote while John McCain earns 44%. Given that choice, 4% would opt for “some other candidate” while 5% are not sure.

In early March, Obama led McCain by twelve percentage points. However, that poll was conducted before Obama’s controversial former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, became part of the campaign dialogue. Currently, Obama is viewed favorably by 57% of Connecticut voters. That rating is down ten percentage points since March. "

Who knew?  Strong support from Senator Lieberman and Congressman Shays  may also be helping Senator McCain close the gap in Connecticut.  It certainly would be a coup if CT went from Blue to Red.
