Murphy vs. McMahon is an even TIGHTER race.


By JD Chang

Earlier today we showed a graphic about how tight the Elizabeth Warren v. Scott Brown race was in terms of social media and news relevancy. They were only 10 spots away out of 1607 possible candidates.

But, just a little north of them, the Senate race in Connecticut is even closer. Just 5 spots separate Linda McMcahon’s TrendPo Rank (TR-117) and Chris Murphy (TR-122). That’s a 0.3% difference.

The latest Hartford Courant poll released today (10/18) shows Murphy up by 6 points.
