Losing Joe-mentum

In other polling news (prez at 33%), Joe Lieberman's (D[ish]-CT) numbers are tanking as he enters a tough primary against Ned Lamont.

Dems and liberals, consistently disappointed by Lieberman's cozying up to the president, lending a veneer of bipartisanship to the most destructive policies, and parroting of right wing talking points, are sending a message. (Some speculate that the Democrat mentioned in Seymour Hersh's article on nuking Iran is wrong-way Joe)

ctblogger writes: "Wondering why Joe Lieberman is airing television ads in April? Well, maybe this new polling data has something to do with it."


Among Liberals:
(3/13/06) 49% approve, 41% disapprove, 10% undecided
(4/10/06) 46% approve, 49% disapprove, 5% undecided
Among Democrats:
(3/13/06) 56% approve, 35% disapprove, 8% undecided
(4/10/06) 54% approve, 41% disapprove, 5% undecided
ctblogger predicts a Lieberman independent run if Lamont gets over 30% in the primary...

But more important than the winner or loser in this single race is the message that disloyalty won't be tolerated just because you have a "D" next to your name... (ConnecticutBlog)
