Yeah, yeah, he’s not the most conservative Republican around. But Rob Simmons grades out well for Connecticut; earned two Bronze Stars; and he continues to own Chris Dodd.
A new Quinnipiac poll, somewhat reliable in their home state, shows Simmons leading Dodd by nine points – 48% to 39%. Simmons led Dodd by six points in the same poll in May.
With respect to a Republican primary, Simmons leads with 42% and no other Republican tops 5%. Undecideds number 45%.
Obama’s approval number is down eight points.
