Look's like Joe Lieberman's traitorous activities during the last campaign haven't exactly had the effect of endearing him to Connecticut voters. Not only does he have a job approval rating of only 45% (48% disapprove) but in the expected matchup with Democratic Attorney General Richard Blumenthal he trails by 28%, 58%-30%.

No surprise there.
I like Lieberman and don't personally condemn him (he backed who HE thought was the right man for the job) - but the fact is, it's bound to cost him in the next election. That's the reality of the situation (and I'm sure he knew that was the risk he was taking).
He's a big boy, he'll be fine as an ex-Senator.

Polls have a way of changing. Bushes approval rating was one 90%. Obamas was once , what 75%? Both dropped and will bottom out about the same. Lieberman has time and it may not be a good time to be a democrat when the election rolls around.

Due to nothing he did. That was truly artificial, and it came back down to match his actual performance. If it had not been for 9/11, he basically would never have cracked 50%.

President Obama is still above 65%. And he's winning the battle on the stimulus - his popularity will go up.

Ha ha ha ha ha! What a joker you are. Oh ... you were serious?

It will be decades, if not centuries, before a President gets as low as Bush. He's an extreme outlier.

What a great poll.....Thanks for the thread.

This puts to rest once and for all that Lieberman is loved and popular becuase he's....so ""BIPARTISAN"" and his right wing votes are soooooo popular!!!

Informed patriotic Americans hate what the GOP stands for. They hate warmongers like Lieberman...

Good Riddance!!!

I can only hope he will either quit or be unelected. He has harmed the nation with his politics.

Big deal, a lot can (and will) change between now and his office being up for election in November 2012.

Get back to me in three years, then we can see where he stands.
