Lamont Leads Lieberman in Lastest Quinnipiac Poll
Joe Lieberman is now lagging former unknown Ned Lamont among likely Democratic primary voters.
Sen. Joe Lieberman, under fire from activists in his own party, has lost ground to his challenger and is narrowly trailing him for the first time in their race for the Democratic nomination, a new poll released Thursday shows. Businessman Ned Lamont had support from 51 percent and Lieberman from 47 percent of likely Democratic voters in the latest Quinnipiac University poll – a slight Lamont lead given the survey’s sampling error margin of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
Technically, this is a statistical dead heat given that the spread is within the poll’s margin of error. Still, Lieberman is clearly toast within the context of this primary race–even though he’s widely expected to win, regardless, if he runs as an independent.
