DFER CT Statewide Poll Finds Lamont Leading With Three Weeks To Go
Lamont Leads Stefanowski With Room To Grow
Reflecting National Trends, Dems Lead On Generic Legislative Ballot
HARTFORD, CT – Democrats for Education Reform Connecticut (DFER CT) today announced new poll findings from Public Policy Polling (PPP), on the statewide contest for governor and expected electoral outcomes on November 6th.
“This data supports what we are seeing and hearing across the state; Democrats are in a strong position heading into Election Day,” said Amy Dowell, State Director for DFER CT. “Having Ned Lamont as our next Governor will mean more equitable resources for our schools and students, innovation, and a focus on what works to close Connecticut’s stubborn achievement and opportunity gap.” DFER CT has been focused on electing Democrats that believe public education is part of the state’s social safety net, and who will put high need students front and center in their policy goals. Staying informed on how some of the key electoral races might look helps DFER CT understand where the State is headed.
“Ned Lamont is in position to expand his lead if he can bring the undecided voters home, the majority of whom say they’re voting Democratic on the generic ballot,” said Jim Williams, polling analyst at Public Policy Polling.
Another important finding in the poll, among participants 18-29 years of age, Democrats lead Republicans on a generic ballot 68% to 28% — and among voters ages 65+, Democrats lead 57% to 37%.
The poll, conducted by PPP and paid for Change Course CT PAC, had 828 Connecticut voters participating. The survey was conducted on October 8th and 9th. Complete results can be found HERE.
Democrats for Education Reform CT is a political organization that supports elected Democrats and candidates for office who seek to expand policies and practices that work well for all Connecticut’s students. We are education progressives who will always prioritize students and families, especially low-income students and students of color who should be better served by our state’s public education system.
