Connecticut: Rasmussen Premium Section has confirmation of poll

Lieberman (I) 48%
Lamont (D) 40%
Schlesinger (R) 9%

At the beginning of October, Lieberman was +11 (with leaners). +17 on Qpac. Huge news is that Schlesinger has reached 9%. Before this, he'd been at 6%

This is HUGE, We all know Alan Schelsinger is going to get more than he's polling (with the R governor and Lieberman's ballot position) So it's more like a 3-4 point race, which with Lamont's superior GOTV (and to be honest, superior voters) Lamont can easily make this up and win!

The momentum is all anti-joe this week, lets keep it that way, fire up the liberal base and encourage your GOP friends to vote for Alan, and you can really win this!

Update: Go to to check for yourself now! :)

For message board discussion, check out the non-profit Liberty Lounge message board, the site has pro and anti Lamont voters, and my friend really would like some company to debate political issues! He's very lonely :( No ads once you register, which is free ofcourse, its all about getting more Democratic debates online!

It's considered general knowledge that with Lieberman on the 7th-9th slot depending on what district, Alan's surging numbers, the republican govenor helping at the top of the ticket, and Alan's taking away solely from Lieberman voters, that the 9% by election day more accurately means 14%. That drains Liebermans vote to 43%.

43% Lieberman, 40% throw into this the very superior GOTV operation Lamont has in place, and how absolutely fanatical Lamont voters are (they'll stay in a blizzard to vote for him) many people believe that Lamont will really get 5-6% more than his last polling, so thats:

43.5% Lamont

42.5% Lieberman

14% Alan

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
