Fox News Polls: Republicans Doing Well In Key Senate Races

Republicans are leading in Washington, Nevada and Ohio.

One big sign of hope? Linda McMahon has cut 4 points from the lead of Dick Blumenthal in CT during the last week.

But after a debate that featured Blumenthal freezing up when asked about job creation, McMahon seems to be in contention. She now trails in the survey of likely voters 43 percent to 49 percent.

The debate, hosted last week by local Fox affiliate Fox CT and moderated by Fox News' Bret Baier, featured a minutes-long, rambling answer from Blumenthal about how jobs are created.

McMahon pounced, and not just in the debate. Her campaign, funded with the fortune she made with her husband in the professional wrestling business, has been showing Blumenthal’s answer in a torrent of TV advertising.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley, an industrialist who served as U.S. ambassador to Ireland, saw his situation improve as well. Democrat Dan Molloy, the former longtime mayor of Stamford, led by 6 points last week. His advantage is down to 4 points now. The two also debated last week.

The poll, though, suggests that there is more at play in the Nutmeg State than just debate performance as President Obama’s job approval rating in the state dropped from 48 percent to 42 percent.

The poll also shows the Christine O'Donnell is not making headway in Delaware, trailing Chris "The Bearded Marxist" by 16.

She does have a new anti-Coons website, "Coons the Taxman" and ad up.

In case you missed it last night, Ace's Get Out The Vote campaign will kick off tomorrow.
