First Post-Primary Lieberman-Lamont Poll Shows Tight Race
Taegan Goddard has an early look at Rasmussen’s numbers on the Connecticut general election poll, believed to be the first survey since Tuesday’s primary.
Rasmussen Reports began polling the Ned Lamont-Joe Lieberman general election match-up last night. After 375 interviews, preliminary numbers show Lieberman ahead of Lamont by 3 percentage points. Republican candidate Alan Schlesinger is a non-factor in the single digits. The last Rasmussen survey of a three way general election found Lamont and Lieberman tied at 40% with Schlesinger at 13%. It appears Lieberman is gaining ground primarily among GOP voters.
These numbers are interesting for conversation but little more. For one thing, an incomplete sample has a huge margin or error even if it represents an across-the-board look. And it may not; who knows which 375 these represent?
