Ed Marcus: Democrats Concerned About Dodd Polling

former Democratic Party state chair Ed Marcus will be on “Face the State” this weekend.

He said during the taping that, were he still chair, if Sen. Chris Dodd’s poll numbers don’t change in the next 90 days he would be talking with Dodd and with other candidates. So far, current state party chair Nancy DiNardo has been firm in her support for Dodd.

You can see a quick clip here, and you can watch “Face the State” this Sunday at 11am for the full interview. Sure to be interesting!

  1. Attention Gop, if you get any calls from pollsters asking if you suport Dodd… SAY YES!

    We need to save Chris Dodd!

    At some point this fall I’d like to see polling of head-to-head Senate match-ups including Blumenthal, Bysiewicz and maybe even Ned Lamont.

    If the Party decides to re-nominate Dodd, that should be a decision made with eyes wide-open. Because if Dodd is the nominee, 2010 is going to be one hell of a fight.

    Personally, I think Senator Dodd should make a noble move and retire in favor of Dick Blumenthal, who has also paid his dues. If the incumbent did that, in one fell swoop this contest would be over.

    But I understand all the loyalty to Dodd, who’s done a great job of quarterbacking the team all of these years.

    One way or another, the bottom line is that CT Dems must retain this seat. We cannot let a national GOP comeback begin in Connecticut.

  3. Ed Marcus has been a thug and a bully for a very, very long time.

    Why, in 1992, he ran for state chairman on a platform that he’d fire me his first day in office – (I was the Democratic’s Political Director at the time) – fire me for my support for the income tax – and he did.

    But I digress…least anyone think Marcus’ absurd comments are related to Dodd in 2010 here is a a quick history lesson. This has nothing to do with Dodd and 2010 but with a brusing defeat Marcus took in Branford decades ago.

    What is amazing is that anyone – especially a real news outlet – would take this guy seriously, especially when you understand the history behind his comments.

    Once a school yard bully, always a school yard bully.

  4. I agree Jonathan, I don’t know why Channel 3 is wasting air space with the comments from this old fool. I have to laugh at Marcus playing the “tough guy,” who cares what he thinks? Like Chris Dodd would ever listen to him?

    Nice to see you posting here Jonathan, while I’m a Republican and we disagree more than we agree on most issues, I’ve always considered you to be an honest, intelligent hard worker and a good person.

    And that’s why he is not state party chair. How about standing up and fighting for your party! How about fighting for a Senator who has been there fighting for us for decades! It’s times like these when a person can find out who his true friends are.

    Please spare us this mafia-style loyalty stuff. Marcus may be a creep, but if Dodd didn’t step on his dick by letting this stuff (a lot of it outright lies) cling to him, nobody would be talking about asking him to step aside.

    But please, tell us more about how standing up and fighting is the qualification for serving as State Party Chair!

    Maybe Marcus is putting his country before party loyalty? Is that possible?

  8. The problem for Democrats if Dodd’s numbers don’t quickly improve is that the Senate race, as in 2006, will distract from the governor’s race. Jodi Rell will walk all over any of the candidates “exploring” right now. However, if instead the Senate race becomes a cakewalk for Blumenthal, CT voters will pay more attention to the governor’s race and realize how awfully inactive Gov. Rell is for our state.
