While I am a devoted Lamont-supporter, I maintain friendships within the Lieberman camp... Some of whom are deep within his strategy team.  In recent weeks they have been relaxed and confident with the double digit polls but always on guard for a November Lamont surge.  They will remind you (with great paranoia) of Lieberman's surge against Weicker 18 years ago.

Well tonight I received an e-mail from one of my more deeply connected resourses that was shocking to me, as I considered any real hope for Lamont overly optimistic.  But here it is in black and white...

>Joe is now well under double digits in our internal polling - it is only a bit more than the margin of error.
>We will still win but we are worried. Iraq is a bigger factor than we thought, including with the Independents >and modreates in central and western CT.

So there it is... Anyone have anything else on Lieberman's internals?

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.
