    Lieberman 46%, Lamont 41%
    August 12, 2006

    Senator Joseph Lieberman Senator Joe Lieberman’s decision to run as an Independent sets up a lively campaign season for Connecticut voters. In the first General Election poll since Ned Lamont defeated Lieberman in Tuesday’s primary, the incumbent is hanging on to a five percentage point lead. Lieberman earns support from 46% of Connecticut voters while Lamont is the choice of 41% (see crosstabs).

    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.
