Lieberman Leading Lamont by 12 Points

New Quinnipiac poll of likely voters (no link available right now) has Lieberman up 53-41 over Lamont. Republican Alan Schlesinger is pulling a mere 4%. Here's a bit from the write up that is sure to drive Lamont's netroot supporters even further out of their minds:

In this latest survey, Lieberman leads 75 - 13 - 10 percent among likely Republican voters, and 58 - 36 - 3 percent among likely independent voters, while likely Democratic voters back Lamont 63 - 35 percent. Two percent are undecided, but 28 percent of those who name a candidate might change their mind before Election Day.

"Sen. Lieberman's support among Republicans is nothing short of amazing. It more than offsets what he has lost among Democrats. As long as Lieberman maintains this kind of support among Republicans, while holding onto a significant number of Democratic votes, the veteran Senator will be hard to beat," said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D.

Looks like Lieberman finally found some real Joementum!
