New poll shows tied race between Foley and Malloy; Big gender gap

The race for governor remains a nail-biter, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released today.

The poll of likely voters shows Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Republican challenger tied at 43% each, with petition candidate Joe Visconti at 7%. That leaves 6% of voters still undecided, with a week to go until the Nov. 4 election.

One big split among voters is between men and women. Malloy leads Foley 52%-35% among women, with 5% for Visconti, while Foley leads Malloy 51%-34% among men, with 10% for Visconti.

The poll of 838 likely voters was conducted from Oct. 22 - 27 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
