The latest Quinnipiac poll (and perhaps the last before the election) shows Joe Lieberman surging to a 17-point lead! Not only did Lieberman add 3% from the last poll, Ned Lamont LOST 4%!

Things are looking grim for the "Freshmaker". Remember the remix of this ad?

It's even funnier to watch now. Heh.

All the Lefty bloggers were trying to convince themselves that Republican Alan Schlesinger wiped the floor with Lieberman in Monday's debate. Apparently, it mattered very little to Lieberman's supporters. In fact, he hurt Lamont more:

While 35 percent of Connecticut voters watched Monday's candidate debate, another 35 percent said they heard or read about the debate. Of those who watched the debate or read or heard about it, only 3 percent say they changed their mind about whom they would vote for as a result of the debate.

Ned Lamont needed to score a knockout in the debates to catch Sen. Joseph Lieberman, but he apparently didn't lay a glove on him," said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D.

"Lamont's negatives are up and he has fallen farther behind in the matchup against Lieberman because of his drop among independent voters and men.

"Observers had speculated that Alan Schlesinger would benefit from the debate exposure and take Republican votes away from Lieberman," Dr. Schwartz added. "Instead, he took Republican votes away from Lamont."

So, what are you guys going to try next? Reverse psychology? "Don't vote for Ned. He's too good for CT"?

1 The poll was taken before the debate....Schwartz is a buddy of Whiney-joe....The Q poll has always slanted heavily to Mr Liarman. Wait until next week....better yet, Dont drive yourself crazy. Wait until Nov 7. I dont know if CT can take another 6 years of this whiney crybaby.

2 For what it's worth, I don't think the margin is really 17 points either. I think it's more like the 13 point spread of the SurveyUSA poll, or the 10 points of the Rasmussen poll. It could very well be only 8 points like the UCONN poll. But no matter how you slice it, Lamont is in a deep hole and he's making up zero ground. It won't be me who's driving himself crazy until Nov. 7th. But then some of you wingnuts have already reached your destination. Enjoy your stay.

3 As I said this morning, double the margin of error and add 5 and Joe is still winning! Ned is a loser, plain and simple.

4 The only poll that really matters is the voting results... So, in this election cycle the dems will not only lose the election, they also will lose a seat in the senate. Silly dems!

5 Skye has it right. Lamont is in a deep hole and continues to dig deeper on a political basis, and a hole in his checking account. He's running 100% on ego and has no knowledge what it requires to be a U.S. Senator. I guess KOS and the crazies got him the nomination.

6 Hate Joe's politics on 99% of the issues. But he's on target with the important one - defending the USA. This conservative will hold his nose and vote for Joe.

7 The alternative is just unacceptable.

8 No Skye, the dems wont lose a seat, they just wont gain one...Lie-berman hasnt been a Dem for a long time. Lets vote Joe and Bush and defend America from the true threats, Habeus Corpus and the Bill of Rights.
