Lamont Edges Ahead of Lieberman

In a Quinnipiac poll released today, Ned Lamont pulls ahead of Joe Lieberman, 51% - 47%, in the Connecticut Democratic Primary for Senator.

Here, however, is the part that really pisses me off:

In possible general election matchups:

-Lieberman defeats Republican challenger Alan Schlesinger 68 - 15 percent;

-Lamont beats Schlesinger 45 - 22 percent, with 24 percent undecided;

-Running as an independent, Lieberman gets 51 percent, to 27 percent for Lamont and 9 percent for Schlesinger.
I don't know which pisses me off more, voters in Connecticut who would vote for Lieberman even though he basically went around the rules to get on the ballot or Joe Lieberman who demonstrated such a lack of decency in ignoring the will of the voters within his own party.

In the end, at least the seat is safe from a Republican pick up.
