What's happening in Connecticut?
The general concensus was pretty clear after the debates: Joe lost, Schlessinger should pick up some voters and Lamont would go up in the polls. Since then, I have been scouring the pollsters websites and cannot find a single new poll. They all date back to Oct 5th. What's up with that? I expected to see some new polling data by now. Does anyone have any new info on this? :shrug:

1. Maybe the polls don't favor Lieberman so they are trying
to keep them hidden....

4. As I understand it,
that is not considered a "post-debate" poll. Also, all the other senate candidates have much more recent polling. For most of them, it is done weekly. I don't get it. Does anyone have any insight?

3. Hillary "donated" her communications guru, Wolfson, to Lamont campaign
last month. The buzz on the internet also seems to have subsided. Maybe Wolfson isn't really there to "help" in the ways we expected.

6. Well I did not know that
Kind of like Lockhart going into the Kerry campaign after yapping about no August bump when Kerry was actually up in the polls the entire month. I'd sure like to know who convinced him he had a bad August and needed the Clinton people because it wasn't true at all.

8. I think some of DC "strategist" class was in place to undermine, not enlighten
.

5. Lamont is losing
Lieberman seems to have pulled way ahead and left Lamont behind. It looks like it's too late to turn around now. Woooppee. :(

7. How do we know that if there is no pollling data?
Djneedle83 posted this on the 24th at dailykos:

..."However, I find it to be shocking and disturbing that the latest Qunnipiac poll has Joe Lieberman ahead by 17%. It seems Joe's selective love among certain pollsters has show curious favorability. Here is what Tom Swan said (Ned Lamont's campaign manager) about this latest fraudulent political survey.

'I find the Q poll to be both inaccurate in terms of the state of the race, but also bordering on malpractice for a polling firm," he said. "For Doug Schwartz to imply in his press release that his poll numbers reflected the outcome of the last two debates is as intellectually dishonest as anything I've ever heard from a pollster..."
