    "Not as bad" is a good thing when you're already at the market and choosing between soap flakes, but this is the headline race, and if Lamont is seen as being merely "Not as bad" and a "viable alternative", he may not get out the vote enough to win.

    I think he needs to be seen as a dynamic, positive force to get enough people to the polls to win.

    •  again that's a misread of dynamics (0+ / 0-)
      there's a huge turnout expected, based on interest.

      This isn't CA-50.

      •  I hope you're right (0+ / 0-)

        We'll find out in 48 hours or so.

        •  Susan Bysiewicz, the Dem SoS (0+ / 0-)

          says she's never seen such interest. There's over 10,000 new dems.

          We may have issues with the accuracy of the poll (but the caveats have been posted). But I doubt turnout and interest are the issues to be concerned with.

      •  CA-50 turnout was 45% (0+ / 0-)
        Does CT project higher? That would favor Lieberman, I would think.

        •  Bysewietz (SoS) is predicting 30-40% (0+ / 0-)

          double her prediction of two weeks ago.
