Orange, Conn. (WTNH)– With a few days to go until the election, we made a stop at Chip’s Family restaurant in Orange to find out who’s got the vote for governor. Governor Dannel Malloy is facing Republican Tom Foley in a fierce fight for the governor’s race.
A Quinnipiac University poll shows Connecticut’s race for governor is a dead heat. When asked whom they would support if the election were today, 43-percent said Malloy, and 43-percent said Foley. Conservative petitioning candidate Joe Visconti was favored by 7-percent. Six-percent were undecided.
“There are somethings I know and somethings I would like to know a little bit more about,” said Lee Laster.
Local Independents we talked to said the campaign ads are confusing and they are still undecided.
“There are smears on both parts and I don’t think they need to do that,” said Maureen Brooks. “Again, if they focused on what they were going to do and not what the other guy did it would be informative and not as nasty/”
Lee Laster told News 8 he is still undecided.
“I am tired of the negative stuff and the fact that you say you have this plan but it is one thing like Foley to say you are going to cut taxes, if you are going to cut taxes how are you going to make up that money?” said Laster.
Voters said the candidates are just skimming the surface of hot button issues. They told us what they want to hear.
“I want to hear what they are going to do, what are you going to do about taxes, what are you going to do about social security, what are you going to do for the people of Connecticut,” said Brooks.
