Lamont May Win The Battle But Lose The War To Lieberman, Latest Q Poll Suggests

UPDATED TO INCLUDE DATA FROM PRIVATE POLL


The latest poll from Quinnipiac University shows Ned Lamont has pulled ahead of Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman in the race for the Democratic nomination for Lieberman's Senate seat.

Among registered Democrats, Lamont has moved ahead of Lieberman 51% to 47%.

On June 8, the most-recent previous Q Poll, Lieberman held a 55% to 40% lead.

The problematic numbers for Lamont are the ones that measure a three-way race between Lamont, Lieberman and Republican Alan Schlesinger.

Running as an independent, as he has pledged to do if he loses the Democratic primary, Liebrman holds a rather large lead - 51% to Lamont's 27% and Schlesinger's 9%.

The poll shows Lieberman with strong support among Republicans and independents.
