1. Joe doesn't give a crap about his voters
Just like his make-out buddy.

That is good to hear though. Maybe that 61% will grow in the coming weeks.

3. Think that'll stop him? It's no longer about winning for Joe.
It's about keeping an antiwar vote out of the Senate by trying to split the Dems & allow a Puggy to win. Lieberman has sold his soul to the devil. I bet Bush/Rove has made hims some promises concerning a home somewhere in the Maladministration for after the election.

5. Or, in typical politic fashion
He's got feet of clay and they have something on him.

9. Wow. Good analysis.
I think of my conversation with the Jewish boss yesterday...she didn't care about anything but that Joe was good for Israel. Joe is for Bush, Bush is for Israel, and that is all that mattered.

I think you may be right. Maybe Joe is more concerned about Israel than his own country, too.

16. The Senator from Tel Aviv...
He's been looking like that for a long time now.

4. And People Forget That 0% Of Independents Wanted Him In The First Place
Think about that. Just because he named himself some sort of independent doesn't mean that independents will vote for him, and you know that at least some good sized portion of those who did vote for him will be loyal to the party rather than the man. So where does that leave him?

6. Joe is not about Joe supporters...
Joe is all about Joe.

He needs to grow up.

14. I know I felt bad about it at first, but it is all about marketing
there has been a whole lot of money spent on brand recognition and we can piggy back on it to spread our meme (I love found money.)

8. Actually, 3 out of 4 of Joe's voters say he SHOULD run as an independent.
61% of all Democratic Primary voters felt he should not run as an independent, while 3 out of 4 of Lieberman voters said he should.

Wow.

17. And I think Indies and anti-war Republicans will break for Ned.
Joe's numbers will only go down as we approach November. His campaign is not a grass roots thing built on foundation...it's simply one man's ego that can't accept the voter's rejection.

Joe has no one to blame but himself. If he hadn't floated that Independent run, he'd probably would have been re-elected in a close race.

12. Thanks. Although that isn't a majorly significant difference.
Still, Joe lost support for his bid from 25% of his supporters. That can't be good.

13. Yes, but I think it's profoundly disturbing that 75% of Joe's supporters..
.. want him to win under any condition.

15. There is a large Jewish population in CT.
Edited on Wed Aug-09-06 04:08 PM by Atman
I swear, I think more of my friends are Jewish than gentile. Joe DOES have a lot of support here, if for no other reason than that.

18. Not according to the CBS poll.
It's 61% of all who voted in the primary. Of Lieberman voters, 75% think he should run as an independent.
