Sam Caligiuri says his internal polling in the 5th Congressional District shows him in nearly a dead-heat with the two-term Democratic incumbent, Chris Murphy.

A poll by National Research has Murphy over Caligiuri, the Republican nominee, 40 percent to 39 percent.

Caligiuri’s base line poll a year ago was 49 percent to 28 percent.

The poll of 400 likely voters was conducted Aug. 30 and 31.
