Obama Is Having Surprising Problems in Connecticut

There have been disappointing polling and fundraising numbers for the President in the Nutmeg State.


President Barack Obama will attend two fundraisers Monday in Connecticut, a state where he is facing an alarming decline in both political contributions and in some recent polling. 

Obama will head to the Stamford Marriott Hotel for a $500-per-person reception first. Then, he will be whisked off to the home of film producer Harvey Weinstein, where tickets to the dinner start at $35,800 per person.
