HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Republican challenger Tom Foley are competing for last-minute votes as new polling shows the Democratic incumbent leading slightly in the tight race.

A Quinnipiac University Poll released Monday showed 47 percent of likely voters supporting Malloy and 44 percent backing Foley. One day before Election Day, it’s still within the margin of error.

Seven percent remain undecided.

The poll did not include petitioning candidate Joe Visconti, who is backing Foley.

The telephone survey of 926 likely voters was conducted Oct. 28-Nov. 2. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.

Foley is set to campaign Monday in eastern Connecticut and end in Windsor Locks with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Malloy has rallies planned for New Haven and Stamford.
