Polls Are In: People Really Do Hate Joe Lieberman

Also: "Roughly the same number of those polled said they had never heard of Lieberman."

It's a good thing Joe Lieberman doesn't care what people think of him:

Sen. Joe Lieberman's (I-Conn.) favorable ratings have taken almost a 10-point drop in the past two weeks, a new poll found.

31 percent of people told a CNN poll conducted Dec. 16-20 that they had a favorable opinion of Lieberman, a key Senate centrist who'd opposed healthcare reform only until recently. Opinion toward Lieberman, though, was down from a 40 percent favorable rating in the same CNN poll conducted December 2-3 of this year.

Poll respondents' unfavorable opinion of Lieberman ticked upward over the same period.

In fact, the only numbers that Lieberman might find troubling?

Roughly the same number of those polled said they had never heard of Lieberman ...

On the bright side, with these numbers and his unwavering commitment to screw over Americans on health care reform, I foresee another chairmanship in his future.
