Poll Shows Lamont 51% v Lieberman 47%

By Brian Zick
Quinnipiac poll:
July 20, 2006 - Lamont Inches Ahead Of Lieberman In Dem Primary, Quinnipiac University Connecticut Poll Finds; Incumbent Still Leads In 3-Way November Matchup

On a related note, Josh gets a letter from TPM Reader NR:
So when Joe Lieberman is being primaried and there is a real chance he will lose, common wisdom says it is because the liberals are demanding ideological purity. But when Cynthia McKinney is being primaried and there is a reach [sic] chance she will lose, common wisdom is nonexistent.

Just 'cause the talking heads like Lieberman and don't like McKinney doesn't change the fact that grassroots, rank and file voters are using the primary process to select the candidates they like the best. That's the way it is, and the way it should be.
