Joe Lieberman's new poll numbers...

...are in the toilet.
Fifty-four percent of residents rated Lieberman negatively, saying he is doing a fair (26 percent) or poor (28 percent) job. Thirty-seven percent viewed him positively, giving an excellent (10 percent) or good (27 percent) rating.

The poll found that Lieberman, a registered Democrat who relied on Republicans and unaffiliated voters for his re-election in 2006, has lost much of his independent base.

Sixty-one percent of Republicans viewed him favorably, compared with 23 percent of Democrats and 37 percent of independents.

He was viewed unfavorably by 30 percent of Republicans, 69 percent of Democrats and 53 percent of independents.

"He's really polling as a weak Republican, rather than a wounded Democrat," said Barnes, a former pollster at the University of Connecticut.
