Additional Trend Information

Democrat Hillary Clinton leads Republican Donald Trump 45 - 38 percent in a Connecticut presidential race in which there is little love for either candidate, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

When third-party candidates are added to the mix, Clinton gets 41 percent, with 36 percent for Trump, 6 percent for Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson and 3 percent for Green Party candidate Jill Stein, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.

Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont tops Trump 54 - 35 percent.

A total of 37 percent of Connecticut voters have a "strongly favorable" or "somewhat favorable" opinion of Clinton, while 55 percent have a "somewhat unfavorable" or "strongly unfavorable" opinion.

Trump gets 33 percent "strongly favorable" or "somewhat unfavorable" and 61 percent "somewhat unfavorable" or "very unfavorable."

Ninety percent of voters don't know enough about Stein to form an opinion of her and 86 percent don't know enough about Johnson.

"While Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump, her single digit lead is smaller than might be expected from true-blue Connecticut, and her negative favorability rating is almost as bad as his," said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, PhD.

"Maybe Connecticut will matter again in the general election, just as it did in the primaries. Trump won the primary overwhelmingly. Could he win here again in November? Unlikely, but there already have been so many surprises, who knows?"

Connecticut voters say 61 - 37 percent that Clinton is prepared for the job as president, and say 69 - 30 percent that Trump is not prepared.

Voters say 55 - 42 percent that if Trump is president, he will bring about "real change in the way things are done in Washington." If Clinton is president, it will be "business as usual," voters say 82 - 16 percent.

Clinton has the right "personality and temperament" to be president, voters say 60 - 39 percent, but Trump does not, voters say 68 - 29 percent.

"It's pretty amazing that Trump is within single digits of Clinton, given how poorly he scores on having the temperament and being prepared for the presidency," Dr. Schwartz said. "What Trump has going for him is the desire for change, and the weakness of Hillary Clinton."

U.S. Senate Race

Democratic incumbent Sen. Richard Blumenthal tops either of two possible Republican challengers by margins of 2-1:
  • 60 - 30 percent over State Rep. Dan Carter;
  • 62 - 27 percent over businessman August Wolf.
Blumenthal gets a 60 - 31 percent job approval rating. A total of 59 percent of Connecticut voters have a "strongly favorable" or "somewhat favorable" opinion of him, with 27 percent "somewhat unfavorable" or "very unfavorable."

For Carter, 84 percent haven't heard enough to form an opinion of him and 83 percent haven't heard enough about Wolf.

President Obama's Approval

Connecticut voters approve 54 - 43 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing, his best score since a 54 - 42 percent approval in a March 17, 2010, Quinnipiac University poll.

Democrats approve 91 - 9 percent, while Republicans disapprove 84 - 14 percent. Independent voters are divided as 48 percent approve and 49 percent disapprove.

Voters approve 53 - 31 percent of the job U.S. Sen. Christopher Murphy is doing.

From June 1 - 5, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,330 Connecticut voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and the nation as a public service and for research.
