Richard Blumenthal, the long-time Democratic Connecticut attorney general who is running for Sen. Christopher Dodd’s soon-to-be open seat, is sitting very pretty according to a new poll. Quinnipiac University—which is known and respected for its national polls, but is actually in Connecticut—found Blumenthal positively walloping his three most likely Republican opponents (one of whom is Linda McMahon, the wife of professional wrestling honcho Vince McMahon). We’re talking leads of several touchdowns here, which is perhaps unsurprising given Blumenthal’s astonishing 84 percent approval rating. “Blumenthal’s job approval is unbelievably high, higher than any other politician we’ve ever measured, other than former President George W. Bush after 9/11,” said the poll’s director. Hey, it was enough to get Bush re-elected, right?
