Joe Lieberman Is Toast

Thursday, January 7, 2010

Bye bye, Joe Lieberman!
81% of Democrats now disapprove of Lieberman's job performance with only 14% approving, and he's not real popular with Republicans who disapprove of him by a 48/39 margin or with independents who do so by a 61/32 spread either. It all adds up to a 25% approval rating with 67% of his constituents giving him bad marks.


When the Democrats, Republicans, and independents are all against you it's pretty hard to see a path to keeping your seat, and Connecticut may have an all new Senate delegation by 2013. Our polling on this year's Senate race released yesterday showed Congressman Chris Murphy could be a formidable candidate and while he won't run this year with Richard Blumenthal in the race he could give Lieberman a run for his money in 2012.
It's hard to believe that Joe Lieberman was Al Gore's running mate, but 2000 now seems like an eternity ago. Anyway, I hope Holy Joe doesn't let the door hit his sorry behind on his way out! Good riddance.
