DescriptionLinda McMahon will enter the 2012 race for the United States Senate next week with a hefty lead over former Congressman Christopher Shays in the contest for the party’s nomination. A Republican source familiar with the sample of 400 GOP likely primary voters conducted for the Greenwich Republican’s campaign tells Daily Ructions that McMahon beats Shays by 19 points in a head-to-head competition.

The 2010 Republican Senate nominee has maintained her popularity among party faithful, showcasing a favorability rating of 68%, while 24% view the professional wrestling mogul unfavorably. Shays, who reveled in a reputation for criticizing fellow Republicans during his 11 terms in Congress, would enter the race, should he decide to make it, with a 46% favorably rating, while 27% of party members questioned seeing him unfavorably. Twenty percent had no opinion of Shays, who left Connecticut for the Maryland shore after losing his 2008 re-election bid.
