Fresh off his outrage-fest over Chris Dodd, Connecticut’s senior Senator, hosting a healthcare forum at the Coast Guard Academy, Rob Simmons is enjoying a marginal lead over Dodd, according to a new Quinnipiac University Poll.
Dodd trails Simmons by one point, 43 to 42 percent. In a head-to-head matchup with CNBC host Larry Kudlow, Dodd leads 46 to 34 percent.
“These numbers have to worry Sen. Christopher Dodd. Former Congressman Simmons is not well known outside his district, yet he is running neck and neck with Dodd at this point,” said Quinnipiac pollster Douglas Schwartz.
With news like this, I’d be shocked, shocked if Simmons doesn’t make a run at Dodd for the 2010 race.
