Lieberman Opens 10 Point Lead over Lamont
Joe Lieberman is once again running away with the Connecticut Senate race.
Senator Joseph Lieberman (I) has increased his margin over Democrat Ned Lamont by eight points. He now leads the antiwar candidate 50% to 40% (see crosstabs [$]). Thirty-nine percent (39%) are certain of their Lieberman vote, while 30% definitely expect to pull the lever for Lamont. GOP nominee Alan Schlesinger now attracts 6% of all voters.
It’s interesting that, despite continued bad news on whatwas presumed to be the defining issue in the contest both in Connecticut and nationally, the war in Iraq, and the weight of the Democratic party machine against him, Lieberman is nonetheless gaining steam.
