The latest Quinnipiac university poll puts President Barack Obama ahead of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the run for the White House, 55 percent to 41 percent, compared to 54 percent to 42 percent on Oct. 4.
Obama leads 60 percent to 36 percent among women and 49 percent among men to Romney's 46 percent.
The President leads among every subgroup except Republicans.
Only 5 percent of Romney voters and 6 percent of Obama voters said they might change their mind.
"President Barack Obama is running stronger than Murphy in Connecticut, holding steady with a 14 point lead over Gov. Mitt Romney. The President's coattails are helping Murphy," Douglas Schwartz, director of the Quinnipiac University poll, said.
The Quinnipiac University poll conducts public opinion surveys in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, Virginia and the nation.
