A CBS-New York Times poll based on internet surveys by YouGov found Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Republican Tom Foley tied at 40 percent in Connecticut’s race for governor, with Joe Visconti at three percent. (Actually, Malloy was up by less than a point, but they rounded.)

The poll is based on online surveys from Oct. 16 to 23 of panelists that have been selected and weighted to be representative of registered voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.

YouGov also had the race a tie in its last survey.
