New poll shows bad news for Lamont?

Taegan, you're kidding me right? Please tell me you were kidding when you did this post.
A new Public Opinion Strategies (R) poll finds Ned Lamont (D) trailing Sen. Joe Lieberman (I), 51% to 35%, in the Connecticut U.S. Senate race. Republican Alan Schlesinger receives 4% of the vote, while 10% remain undecided.

Key finding: When asked which candidate is running a negative campaign, 40% say Lamont compared to 19% for Lieberman.
Now, I like Political Wire and they even cross link to this site from time to time but man, someone REALLY dropped the ball on this one.

I'll give Tim Tagaris the honors and let him break this down. Trust me, this is so easy that I honestly think Tim was able to find this information before he finished his cigarette.
Public Opinion Strategies = Neil Newhouse (link)

Neil Newhouse = Joe's Pollster (link)

New Poll = Internal Poll (link)

Wanna disect it, wanna push it? Release it in full.
Get it, got it, good.

Now Taegan, I'm a big fan of your site so please do the right thing and do a follow-up post and fully disclose the connection between Public Opinion Strategies and the Lieberman campaign. It would have been nice if you told your readers about the Neil Newhouse connection.

I'm disappointed in you Taegan, very disappointed.
