Senator Lieberman will continue to reach out to voters across the political spectrum over the next several months, hoping to champion the message that voters are tired of partisan politics.
"This poll is a very encouraging sign for our campaign. It shows that Connecticut voters from across the political spectrum have had enough of the partisanship and polarization that has broken Washington and want a Senator who will rise above petty politics to get things done for our state. That's just the kind of principled leadership Joe Lieberman has provided for the past 18 years, and why his call for a new politics of unity and purpose is resonating with Democrats, Republicans and independents alike.
“But we recognize that it’s still quite early, and we certainly know from experience that campaigns are not decided by early polling. The fact is we are in the challenger in this race -- we are challenging the conventional partisan politics -- and we are going to keep running as if we are behind. We plan on taking our message of positive change and real results to the voters every day between now and November 7th and fighting for every vote.”
