Here Are The Results of SurveyUSA Election Poll #10634

Geography Surveyed: Connecticut

Connecticut Lieberman Re-Elected to U.S. Senate: Backed by 73% of Republicans, 35% of Democrats and 43% of Independents, incumbent Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman, running not as a Democrat but as his own Party, defeats Democrat nominee Ned Lamont and Republican Alan Schlesinger, according to a SurveyUSA poll of 652 likely voters conducted exclusively for WABC-TV New York. In 3 tracking polls, Lieberman today is below 50% for the first time, but at the finish line, appears to have enough Joementum for a 4th term: 49% Lieberman, 38% Lamont, 9% Schlesinger. Only factors that would not manifest themselves in a telephone opinion poll, such as Lieberman's position on the actual ballot, relative to Schlesinger's position and Lamont's position, might cause the contest to be closer. Lamont has trailed by 13, 13 and today 11 in SurveyUSA's 3 tracking polls. Republican Schlesinger gets 14% of Republican votes today. With which party Joe Lieberman decides to caucus, and how Joe Lieberman decides to vote, may well determine control of the United States Senate for the next 2 years.
