Things Still Don’t Look Good for Lieberman

The Lieberman camp is cheering,” according to AP, with their man generating some belated Joementum the day before Connecticut’s Democratic primary election. They’re heartened by a Quinnipiac University poll that shows Lieberman cutting into Ned Lamont’s lead, which last week hit double digits. Lamont now has “a slight lead of 51 percent to 45 percent” over Lieberman among likely Democratic voters.

Well, it’s getting tighter, but a six point deficit still doesn’t look good for Lieberman.

(Plus, McJoan at Daily Kos: Lieberman a “principled” politician? Yes — but not the way you think. Call it “the Lieberman Principle: What is good for Joe is good.” And McJoan has the flip-flops to prove it.)
