Poll Shows Connecticut Governor Race Still Tight

HARTFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Connecticut’s race for governor remains tight and many voters appear to dislike both major party candidates, according to a new Quinnipiac University Poll.

The survey released Wednesday shows Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy with 43 percent of the support of likely voters. Republican Tom Foley has 42 percent, while conservative petitioning candidate Joe Visconti has 9 percent.

An Oct. 8 poll showed Malloy with 43 percent, Foley with 43 percent and Visconti with 9 percent.

“The race for Connecticut governor looks very much like it will go down to the wire — again,” Poll Director Douglas Schwartz said.

Schwartz said Foley’s favorability rating “continues to tumble.” For the first time, more voters have a negative view of him than a positive one. Malloy’s favorability rating is slightly worse, however.

Obama has rescheduled his political visit for Malloy and the democrats for Nov. 2 in Bridgeport, two days before the election. The president canceled his visit to Connecticut and New Jersey last week to hold an Ebola meeting with his advisers.

A presidential visit on the weekend before the election is often cited in Malloy’s narrow victory over Foley four years ago, WCBS 880’s Paul Murnane reported.

The telephone survey of 1,010 likely voters has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. To see the full poll, click here.

Ray Rice’s Appeal Hearing Set For Nov. 5-6

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – A hearing on Ray Rice’s appeal of his indefinite suspension will be held Nov. 5 and 6, two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.

The people spoke with the AP on condition of anonymity Tuesday because details of the hearing have not been made public.

Rice was suspended indefinitely Sept. 8 for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy after a video of Rice hitting his then-fiancee in an elevator was released publicly. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell originally had suspended Rice for two games.

Once the video became public, the Baltimore Ravens cut the star running back, and the league banned him indefinitely. The league considered the video to be new evidence, giving Goodell the authority to further suspend Rice.

The players’ union is appealing Rice’s suspension, saying Rice should not be punished twice.

A neutral arbiter is expected to decide whether Goodell should testify. The arbiter had not yet made that decision as of Tuesday afternoon, the sources who informed the AP of the hearing said.

The arbiter, former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones, was jointly picked by the commissioner and the players’ union. Union officials said when the appeal was announced that Goodell and his staff’s testimony are key to the appeal and a central reason to have an outside arbiter.

Rice has also filed a grievance against the Ravens, according to multiple reports.

He could recoup $3.52 million in salary if he wins both cases, Pro Football Talk reported.

‘The Voice’: Beth Spangler & Mia Pfirrman Cover Christina Aguilera’s “I Turn To You”

Did The Ladies Do Xtina Justice?

As The Voice transitions from the Battles to the Knockouts, it’s time for celebration: get ready for a wardrobe change! Here’s hoping the coaches step it up in the ridiculous department, though, because this season’s fashion choices have been a little too safe. Sure, Adam Levine donned a bowling shirt, but his hair has stayed the same normal color, and there have been no Hawaiian shirts to speak of. Pharrell’s hat sizes have been beyond reasonable, and Gwen Stefani’s pilgrim socks from the Blind Auditions were nowhere near as ridiculous as the silk pajamas — or really anything — that Cee Lo wore on the show.

Come on, team; you can do better than this. A saucer fascinator topping Blake Shelton’s jeans-and-blazer uniform would do the trick, or even a wacky novelty tie with Carson Daly’s suit. Don’t make the audience wait until Christina Aguilera returns next season to bring out the outlandish.

On to the talent: Tuesday (October 21) night, The Voice wrapped up the Battle Round. Only Gwen entered the night with a steal remaining, but struggled with how to use it. The few televised Battles, after all, were surprisingly mellow — and that just ain’t her style.

Gwen did eventually dish it out, as she and her fellow coaches finalized their teams of eight. Here’s who made it through to next week’s Knockouts:

Team Pharrell: Brittany Butler vs. Ricky Manning

If you’re a fan of vintage adult contemporary, you’re going to love this first battle! Pharrell pairs jazz singer Brittany Butler and R&B musician Ricky Manning for an easy-listening cover of George Benson’s “On Broadway.” If anyone could produce this song into an interesting offering in 2014, it would be Pharrell…but even he doesn’t manage. Jazz it up all you want: it’s just bland.

“You guys both have such strong character and personalities on stage,” says Gwen, adding, “Brittany, I thought you were really good and you ramped up to the end.”

“I feel like this was definitely on par with what we heard before,” Adam tells Brittany. “Ricky, I think I saw a huge leap.”

Their coach is pleased with the performance. “Ricky, you definitely connected with yourself,” he says. “Brittany, I felt like you reserved it a little bit, but toward the end you decided to let it fly.”

Citing overall improvement, Pharrell chooses Ricky. Brittany lets out the first real devastated cry of the season, earning a group hug from Pharrell and Gwen.

Team Blake: Kensington Moore vs. Reagan James

This is it: the big controversial Battle teased as “startling!” Either Reagan James or Kensington Moore is going to miss a rehearsal — a first in Voice history, and it’s going to be a big deal. What could this “startling” missed rehearsal mean? Substance abuse? Prison? Defecting to Idol?

Not so much. Poor Kensington had a brutal case of kidney stones, which is actually a rather reasonable excuse for missing a rehearsal. But, you know — Voice history and all: big day.

Ironically, it’s Reagan who misses a few lyrics during the performance of Lorde’s “Team” (and she made it to all of the rehearsals), but she still stands out as the clear victor.

“Pharrell and I are still pissed that we don’t have you Reagan, and I think today your voice was even better,” says Gwen.

“Kensington, your voice really cut so well,” says Adam. “Reagan, you walked up here like a pop star, and you’re only 16.”

“You both have this hunger,” says Blake “Every note that I gave you came up here and you did it.”

Blake advances Reagan. Don’t worry, Kensington: like the kidney stones, this too shall pass.

Team Adam: Beth Spangler vs Mia Pfirrman

Closing out the Battles are two of Adam’s four-chair turners: Beth Spangler and Mia Pfirrman. The pair initially struggle in rehearsals to take the Christina Aguilera mimicry out of “I Turn to You,” and instead give it their own spin. “Less is definitely more here,” Adam tells them, urging them to avoid the trap of trying to live up to Xtina.

It’s a rough start, but both Beth and Mia hit the big notes the performance is intended to bring out.

“I can see so much potential in what both of you guys to do,” Pharrell says, but leans toward Beth.

“Mia, this song I felt was much more suited for your voice, and you sang it beautifully and confidently,” says Gwen. “Beth, you really surprised me.”

“You just really delivered,” says Adam. “Mia you had the most holy moly moment, but Beth, you were equally as great.”

Calling the decision a “coin flip” Adam advances Mia. Being the last coach with a steal, Gwen adds Beth to her team in a hug/button-press combo move that would earn bonus points should The Voice ever release a video game.

Just like Taylor Swift, the following folks won’t make their appearances until the Knockout Round: On Team Blake, Alison Bray defeats Fernanda Bosch, and on Team Gwen, Anita Antoinette defeats Mayra Alvarez, and Bryana Salaz defeats Gianna Salvato.

With the Battles completed, it’s now time to unleash Taylor Swift on the remaining contestants. It’s fair to say her mentoring approach might be a bit less-chill than former Knockout mentor Chris Martin, but it will certainly be a lot more gif-worthy. Shoes will be removed. Hugs will be given with reckless abandon. Bangs will be flipped. Dance moves will be attempted.

The Voice gets Swifted next week!

Happy Wednesday, ladies! I’m really liking this space dye ponte sheath by Laundry — the pink is happy and bright, and the seaming seems like it would be flattering.
