He might actually break 5%.
If he runs, Dodd's chances will go from about 30% to about 20%.

Raise those odds a tad, I'd say. Simmons will have to bend to the right to make sure he gets through the primary and that will give Dodd more of a partisan advantage.

Do Nader meet residency requirements in CT?

He won't hurt anybody, because he has almost no support left.  In 2004, he got 0.82% in Connecticut; in 2008, he got 1.16%.  He will do nothing in 2010, even if he does run.

But, if he just ran for a statewide office, he'd be spending a lot more time in the state, something he didn't do when running for President.
That being said, I think he'd break 5% easily. Maybe even 10-15% if he's lucky. He has the name recognition down.

Not necessarily, as there is a chance for a vote split among far-right conservatives.

It would be funny if he spoils two elections for the Democrats. Smiley

Name recognition is not always a good thing. I would assume his favorable numbers are something like 9/48. And most of the 10% or so who like him will not vote for him. See Patrick Buchanan in 2000.

Do Nader meet residency requirements in CT?

According to the Connecticut Secretary of State via Politico, Nader is registered to vote in the state, and therefore eligible to run for Senate.  I have no idea where Nader is living right now, but he was born in and started his career in Connecticut.  He probably still owns a house or rents an apartment there.

So basically, what you're saying, is you'd like to raise the odds of Dodd winning by having the party nominate McMahon?

Simmons is basically a conservative on everything except abortion, I really don't understand what's so unacceptable about him.

Linda seems like another RINO to be honest.

Some of my friends want to vote for Nader just out of sympathy for him losing every time.

Good. Unless the GOP nominates Peter Schiff, it's just going to be a boring sham of an election with one establishment stooge against the other. Of course I'd prefer Schiff win, but Nader could at least make the race mildly interesting.

I'd be happy with just about anybody replacing Dodd, personally.

Name recognition for him is not a positive. He is reviled among Democrats.
