You make it sound as if CT has never had a republican win in its state before.

With all the critical swing states and nail biters out there, polling CT is a waste of time.

Looks like you hate to see polls showing your party is losing. Get this fact into your head .... Gubernatorial races are not usually a party thing. Voters usually would like to vote for somebody who make their state better. However, the next gubernatorial races are very important due to the re-districting issue so that's going to lead to solidification of each base of the aisle.

Idaho, then lets poll governor for Utah or senate for wymoning..........there's no need to waste resources polling states and races with obvious outcomes..........sheeesh.

CT has not had a Democratic Governor in 18 years (O'Neil). As a resident of CT, this is a very significant race. Let's also remember that Governors as well as Senators often times become major national figures, so polling for Governor in any state is important. Finally, this race in CT. is wide open. There are multiple candidates on either side (perhaps a dozen in total at this point). The reason in my opinion why the GOP candidates do not stack up well at this point is because they are not well known, compared to Bysiewicz (currently Secretary of State), or Lamont (won Senate primary against Lieberman in 2006). Malloy lost the Democratic primary for Governor last time around and has been Mayor of Stamford for 14 years.

The Senate race was very competitive when Dodd was running. With Blumenthal (DEM - AG) in the race, that election is all but determined, for Blumenthal. Who is nominated on the GOP side is very open, but it will not make any difference.

So the open question is who will the next Governor of CT be.
