Much more realistic (and it's still a huge drop-off for Obama from his '08 performance). This isn't going to be a single digit race.

2008 party registration in Connecticut was D+17, this poll is D+21.  Even accounting for some of this being due to registered independents being counted as Dems and Reps this strikes me as Dem friendly polling sample.  Not that it really matters save in election prediction contests if Obama wins by a high single digit margin or a low double digit margin.
