McMahon Leads Shays by 21 Points in Own Poll

March 27, 2012

Former World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Linda McMahon released poll results showing her with a more than 20-point lead over former Rep. Chris Shays in Connecticut's GOP Senate primary. McMahon released her survey just days after a Quinnipiac poll showed Shays looking like a stronger general election candidate.

McMahon leads Shays 53 percent to 32 percent in the poll, conducted by McLaughlin & Associates. Sixty-five percent of respondents had a favorable opinion of McMahon, while 23 percent had an unfavorable opinion. Meanwhile, 48 percent had a favorable opinion of Shays and 25 percent had an unfavorable one.

The Quinnipiac poll, released last week, also showed McMahon leading Shays, but by a smaller margin -- 51 percent to 42 percent.

That poll showed Shays performing significantly better than McMahon in a general election matchup with Rep. Chris Murphy, the Democratic frontrunner. Shays and Murphy were in a dead heat, while McMahon trailed Murphy by 15 points. Notably, the data released by McMahon's campaign on tuesday does not include any information on general election matchups.

The McLaughlin & Associates poll was conducted March 25 - 26th, surveying 600 likely Republican primary voters, for a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4 percentage points.
