A Quinnipiac University poll out Wednesday has the gubernatorial race too close to call, with just one percentage point separating the two candidates.
The poll shows Gov. Dannel Malloy holds 43 percent of likely voters to Republican challenger Tom Foley's 42 percent. A majority of voters also have negative views of both candidates, regardless of party affiliation.
With 13 days until the election, 81 percent of Connecticut voters say their minds are made up. The poll finds 86 percent of Malloy voters and 84 percent of Foley voters say they will not change their mind. The poll also finds 80 percent of voters still don't know enough about petitioning candidate Joe Visconti to form an opinion.
While Malloy traditionally does not comment on poll results, Foley says he knew this race was going to be tight from the beginning. Both candidates campaigned in Hartford on Wednesday.
Foley will not participate in a televised debate Thursday night, saying his campaign could not reach an agreement with those hosting it. He added that every question has already been asked and he does not expect anything new to come up. Malloy called Foley's decision a bad choice.
