13. That's what the math has always figured
Edited on Thu Oct-05-06 04:48 PM by Awsi Dooger
Lieberman by high single digits. I posted that on primary night while others were assuming Lamont would zoom into the poll lead. There was no such thing as momentum among indies and Republicans, who did not figure in the primary.

I am happy that the progressive blogs have not been prioritizing this race above all the others, which is what I feared.

Lamont needs to get into debates including with Schlesinger ASAP. I can't believe he hasn't been insisting on that for weeks. Lamont's only chance is to get Schlesinger into double digits, maybe 15%, but so far no threat of that.
