Lamont leads Lieberman among CT Dems

From Political Wire (hat tip: Atrios):
In the Connecticut U.S. Senate race, Ned Lamont (D) has surged ahead of Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) and now holds a razor-thin 51% to 47% lead among likely Democratic primary voters, according to a new Quinnipiac poll.

In possible general election matchups:
  • Lieberman defeats Republican challenger Alan Schlesinger 68% to 15%
  • Lamont beats Schlesinger 45% to 22%, with 24% undecided
  • Running as an independent, Lieberman gets 51%, to 27% for Lamont and 9% for Schlesinger.
Remember that "likely voter" models for summer primary elections under unusual circumstances are quite iffy. But certainly Lamont has a great deal of "Nedrenaline" at the moment; his candidacy must be taken seriously. I like that. I think the whole progressive movement should be taken more seriously, and I hope I have been and will continue to be a part of that, however small.
