New Poll: LAMONT LEADS LIEBERMAN 54 TO 41!
Polling Results

August 3, 2006 - Lamont Leads Lieberman 54 - 41 In Dem Primary, Quinnipiac University Connecticut Poll Finds; Malloy Gains Some Ground In Governor's Primary

Momentum for Ned Lamont, the anti-war Connecticut U.S. Senate candidate, increases as he rolls to a 54 - 41 percent lead over incumbent Sen. Joseph Lieberman among likely Democratic primary voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.


This compares to a 51 - 47 percent Lamont lead among likely Democratic primary voters in a July 20 poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.


In this latest survey, 5 percent of likely Democratic primary voters remain undecided, but 85 percent of voters say their mind is made up.


Among Lamont supporters, 65 percent say their vote is mainly against Lieberman.


Lieberman's support for the war in Iraq is the main reason they are voting for the challenger, 44 percent of Lamont voters say, with 50 percent who say the war is one of the reasons.

4. Good news.
Of course, it all comes down to how many people get out to the polls. But from everything that I've seen, it appears that the neoconservative senator is being rejected by the democratic party.

5. I kwew Lamont would win, just by how much is the only question.

If it is a landslide of 10 to 20 points, then LIEberman should just wrap it up and support Lamont, as the right thing to do.

7. Joe's not out of the picture yet....

He'll file as an Independent the day after the primary. He's already expecting to lose and has been gathering signatures.

Edit: Sorry to be such a downer. I'm actually extremely happy that Lamont is going to win...but there's a hard road ahead.

10. F HIM..THEN HE WILL SPLIT THE RETHUG VOTE!!
dems will be twice as mad at him when he files as an indy...and tries to circumvent the primary!!

so the only votes he is likely to get is rethugs...so it will split the rethug vote..and it may mobilize dems who don't vote to go to general to make sure he doesn't win..
