Under a new poll released Monday by Public Policy Polling (PPP), Mr. Malloy has an eight percentage point lead over his Republican challenger Mr. Foley in the upcoming election, a rematch of the 2010 election that Mr. Malloy won by fewer than 10,000 votes. According to PPP, Mr. Malloy is polling at 43% with Mr. Foley coming in at 35% and independent Joe Visconti, who is running to Mr. Foley’s right, coming in at 9%.
