A new Quinnipiac Poll shows the Republican and Democratic front-runners winning the state's presidential primaries, with Donald Trump getting nearly half the vote.
The survey, released Wednesday morning, is the first by the Hamden-based university since the fall and the second poll conducted in as many weeks as the presidential raceturns toward Connecticut, where primary voters will head to the polls on Tuesday.
On the Republican side, 59 percent of respondents said they wanted an outsider in the White House.
"Connecticut Republicans have gone for outsider candidates such as Linda McMahon and Tom Foley. They continue that trend with Donald Trump," Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, said in a statement.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich finishes second in the state with 28 percent, and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is third at 19 percent.
