Sen. Joe Lieberman talks to workers at Goodrich Optical and Space Division Elctro-Optical Systems in Danbury, Conn., Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2006. The latest poll suggests Lieberman, who is running as an independent, is drawing support from about two-thirds of Republicans, more than a third of Democrats and nearly half of unaffiliated voters, the state’s largest voting bloc. He leads despite the fact that 60 percent of voters say going to war was wrong.
Sen. Joe Lieberman has built a 17-point lead over Democratic challenger Ned Lamont, according to the first Quinnipiac University poll since the two faced off in a debate this week.
Lieberman, running as an independent after losing the Aug. 8 Democratic primary to Lamont, leads the Greenwich businessman 52 percent to 35 percent among Connecticut likely voters in the poll released Friday. Republican Alan Schlesinger trailed with 6 percent, and 7 percent were undecided.
A similar poll released on September 28 showed Lieberman with a 10-point lead.
The debate between Lieberman and Lamont on Monday was their first since the August primary. Among those in the poll who watched the debate or read or heard about it, only 3 percent said it changed their minds.
