HARTFORD - A new Quinnipiac University poll finds Republican Senate front-runner Linda McMahon gaining ground on the Democratic candidate, but losing ground to her challengers.

The poll shows McMahon has narrowed the gap between herself and Richard Blumenthal to just 10 points compared to 17 last month.

However, the poll shows she is just 17 points ahead of Republican challenger Rob Simmons, down from a 27 point lead a month ago.

McMahon will face Simmons and Peter Schiff in a primary next week.
