Lieberman Losing Popularity Among Democrats

The latest Survey USA 50-state senate tracking poll is out, and it explains in part why Lieberman is feeling scared enough to start running TV ads in April.

Here's the trendline for Lieberman's popularity among Democrats, which now stands at 54% approval, 41% disapproval:

Even worse for Lieberman, among self-described Liberals, the most likely voters in an August primary, he has for the first time ever crossed into negative territory, at 46% approval, 49% disapproval:

But never fear. Among his core supporters - Republicans - Joe is still flying high. His approval rating among Republicans has actually increased to 70% approval, 27% disapproval.

amazing stuff!

How come we don't see Quinnipiac doing polls like this?

I don't trust the Quinnipiac polls when it comes to Lieberman; I think they love him too much down there.

In any event, EVERYTHING is now in play here, and nothing is "inevitable" any more!
 
This is fantastic News!
