Democratic Rep. Chris Murphy is pulling ahead of Republican nominee and former World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Linda McMahon in the Connecticut Senate race.

Murphy leads 48 percent to 42 percent, in a survey released Wednesday from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling. The survey of 801 likely voters was conducted Sept. 24-26, and has a 3.5 percent margin of error.

Both candidates are unpopular in the poll, with Murphy’s favorable rating at 36 percent and an unfavorable rating of 44 percent, and McMahon also underwater at 42 percent favorable to 49 percent unfavorable. In addition, McMahon’s company WWE is at only 17 percent favorable, with 51 percent unfavorable.

The PollTracker Average shows Murphy ahead, 44.3 percent to 39 percent.
