1. That's amazing
So the big cities did not help him carry the state. That bodes well for november where I am sure he will easily be able to reign in those city votes.

3. Yes, it looks like the cities didn't turn out as much as the suburban and
rural towns.

What I found amazing is that Lamont won New London, 826-824, and Groton, 1220-980. Those are the towns where the sub base is stationed. So much for Lieberman's claim that he saved the sub base.

7. The Hartford Courant had the breakdown
Here's a breakdown on the votes by town -- http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/files/elections/2006/by_co... . You will have to do a search on "senate" to get to the Lamont-Lieberman race.

8. That's pretty interesting .....
I'd have made some very wrong predicitons had I made them. I'm surprized at western Fairfield County. And the Valley, too. Of course, I may be measuring today's Connecticut by the Connecticut of my youth. I know the area is blue collar and more conservative - always was - but with the loss of the Marine One contract as the symbol, I'd have thought a 'Sikorsky Syndrome' would have favored Lamont.

Good news in New London area. Larkspur, do you have any notion of how many Navy personnel vote in CT? Not the raw number so much as what percentage vote in local races as opposed to voting in their home towns by absentee ballot. I ask to try to gauge the military vote. And, as you noted, its amazing that the folks who rely on EB to put food on their families went more for Lamont. Guess ol' Holy hasn't been quite the white knight for government jobs he claims to be.

9. No, I don't have a military vote breakdown
Couldn't find one. Also about 700 absentee ballots were mailed late to military personnel and the Secretary of State will wait til the end of August to receive them and count them.

10. What does your gut tell you about the Valley and the Bpt/Stratford area?
Will they stay Dem or follow Holy? I know there are a lot of Reagan Dem types in that area and I suspect its trending to the conservative side, even now.

13. This is what I was saying the other day...
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 12:30 PM by calico1
I live in Gales Ferry and worked in Groton. I figured New London County would go to Lieberman because of the Sub Base, Pfizer and Electric Boat. But it went to Lamont. His claim of saving the Sub Base by the way is bullshit. Jimmy Carter did way more to save the base than Joeblow did.

4. When Lieberman is a "centrist"
Some 60% to 80% of the state's Democratic Party members are on the "far left fringe." :rofl:

5. Lamont is a strong candidate, awesome actually, he won because
he was better and the people liked him more for their senator...It is that simple!

12. That Cant Be True ...
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 12:21 PM by primative1
I was watching Fox News when they told us that Lamonts support came from a bunch of rich guys in Fairfield county and the blue collar guys from the rest of the state voted overwhelmingly for Lieberman.
Someone is obviously lying here.

15. I live in New London County.

If any county should have gone to Lieb, it should have been mine. We have the sub base which he claims to have saved (actually Jimmy Carter did a lot more to save it), Pfizer HQ, and Electric Boat (which builds the submarines). LOTS of blue collar workers here. I went to vote this week and kind of chuckled to myself. I figured this would be a Lieberman sweep. Yet, Lamont won it. Not by a ton. But the fact that he carried this county is really amazing.
