SurveyUSA: Lieberman Approval Below 50% Among Dems

SurveyUSA released its monthly tracking poll of U.S. Senators, today. Joe Lieberman isn't doing so well.

Among all adults, Lieberman's approval stands at 55% (41% disapprove). This isn't the trouble.

Among Democrats, Lieberman has slipped below 50% approval. Ony 46% approve of him, while 50% disapprove.

Among liberals, many of whom are likely primary voters, Lieberman is at 40% approval (56% disapprove).

So what does this say? It seems to suggest that if the election were held today, Lieberman would probably lose.

At which point does it stop being "Joementum?" I mean, its in real trouble. . . shouldn't we be talking about a lack of "Joementum" at this point?

Probably not. "Joementum" lives on in all of our hearts.

BR: You called it long ago. What is your view on the likelihood of a three-way race?

The real slide hasn't even started yet.Once Lieberman puts his Mug on the Tube the steepness of the slide will get worse.Lieberman will bottom among dems at about 35% in the 2nd or 3rd week of July.

This Really is good news for Courtney,Farrell and Murphy. If they're smart enough to jump off the sinking Lieberman ship and start running on a "Throw the Bums out of DC" and A "Get our Boys home now" Message they'll all win big.

I'd be willing to be that Joe's campaign's internal polling showed these same numbers and trends over the last two weeks. That would explain the roll out by Droney, then the 'spontaneous' comments by Schumer et al, then Joe's own confirmation at the Middlesex Chamber breakfast that he's definately going the independent route if he doesn't win in August.

Holy shit batman!

Looking at the graphs, I can't believe what I am seeing. Joe has lost the Primary, and the Lamont campaign is barely out of the gate....

Slate on the race and Joe's ad.

When Lieberman posted a clumsy Web attack ad, Lamont's supporters turned it into a YouTube phenomenon, with 35,000 viewings in a week.....

The ad has been roundly panned. It's dated and juvenile. It's intellectually confused. While the campaign has portrayed Lamont as a captive of the crazies on the left, the ad claims he's a closet Republican. In short, it's a perpetual PowerBar for Lamont's supporters.

If Lamont has been unconventional and smart, Lieberman so far has been conventional and dumb.
