The polling data tells the story
Wondering why Joe Lieberman is airing television ads in April? Well, maybe this new polling data has something to do with it.
Here's the latest polling data from Survey USA on Bush's favorite Democrat.
Do you approve or disapprove of the job Joseph Lieberman is doing as United States Senator?
(3/13/06) 49% approve, 41% disapprove, 10% undecided
(4/10/06) 46% approve, 49% disapprove, 5% undecided
(3/13/06) 56% approve, 35% disapprove, 8% undecided
(4/10/06) 54% approve, 41% disapprove, 5% undecided
I've said it many times before and I'll say it again, Joe Lieberman is in real trouble and the polling data tells only part of the story. The real indicator wil be how many delegate votes Ned Lamont receives at the primary. If Ned gets anything over 30 percent (which is very possible), Joe's campaign is going to hit the panic button and jump ship by early June.
Somewhere Ned is just smiling.
