Registrars of voters can request police protection if they anticipate trouble. But it’s uncommon for officials to request the help.
WASHINGTON – Sen. Chris Murphy on warned Connecticut voters that casting a ballot on Tuesday for independent gubernatorial candidate Oz Griebel was “as good as a vote for Donald Trump.” Meanwhile, a coalition of progressive groups in Connecticut asked Griebel, and his running mate Monte Frank, to drop out of the race because he’s pulling support from Democratic candidate Ned Lamont.
In nine public polls by four pollsters, Democrat Ned Lamont has topped Republican Bob Stefanowski in all but one.

WASHINGTON — Sen. Chris Murphy is testing the political effectiveness of his push for stricter gun laws in Ohio, a battleground for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and a state that could help decide control of the Senate. In an odd pairing, Murphy is trying to help elect Ted Strickland, a Democrat who was once one of the fiercest defenders of Second Amendment rights on Capitol Hill.
Quinnipiac University, Public Policy Polling and Rasmussen Reports all were winners in Connecticut’s race for governor with final polls that were spot on or within the margin of error compared to the actual results.
On a day of cold rain and hot rhetoric, a new poll and a bit of trash talk, the campaigns of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Tom Foley intersected Saturday in Bridgeport, where the final votes were counted in 2010.
Even at 43 percent in the polls, Dannel P. Malloy says there’s little he would have done differently. And Connecticut shouldn’t expect him to change if he is re-elected Tuesday, even if 52 percent of voters do have an unfavorable opinion of him.
