LIEBERMAN-LAMONT NUMBERS

A new Rasmussen poll in Connecticut shows Sen. Joe Lieberman leading Ned Lamont 46 percent to 41 percent.  From Rasmussen’s write-up of the findings:

A month ago, the candidates were tied at 40% each.

Republican Alan Schlesinger earns just 6% of the vote, down from 13% a month ago.

57% of the state’s voters view Lieberman as politically moderate while 51% see Lamont as liberal.

Half (52%) of Lamont voters believe Bush should be impeached and removed from office. Just 15% of Lieberman voters share that view.

Overall, 55% of Connecticut voters trust Lieberman more than Lamont when it comes to the War on Terror. Thirty-one percent (31%) trust Lamont.

Thirty-one percent (31%) have a Very Favorable opinion of Lieberman, 18% Very Unfavorable.

For Lamont, the numbers are 19% Very Favorable, 23% Very Unfavorable.

Lieberman still attracts 35% of votes from Democrats. Lamont will have to find a way to trim that number without alienating unaffiliated voters.

Lieberman is viewed at least somewhat favorably by 65% of unaffiliated voters compared to 49% for Lamont.
