HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- The latest poll shows that neither candidate has grown support in the past two weeks.
The Siena College Poll shows the race is still a dead heat within the margin error, just like the Quinnipiac Poll two weeks ago.
The Siena Poll shows the candidates are in dead heat in the Fairfield County, but shows Murphy with a huge lead in the rest of southern Connecticut.
Murphy is ahead in Southern Connecticut by almost 20 points, reflecting the overwhelming Democratic registration in Greater New Haven.
McMahon is showing strong voter appeal in Northern Connecticut, leading the region by 12 points in the Sienna Poll.
McMahon is also ahead 5 points among independents. Overall, about 8 percent of voters say they still haven't made up their mind.
President Obama still fares much better. The latest poll shows him leading Governor Romney by 15 points, showing some growth in support over the past two weeks. The President even leads in Republican Fairfield County by 7 points.
