High School Graduates for Lieberman

A new Quinnipiac poll on the Connecticut primary for Senate shows Joe Lieberman still trailing Ned Lamont, this time by 45-51 among likely voters. (It’s an improvement, at least, from the result of a poll released last week that had Lieberman behind by 13 points.)

The new poll did show a continuing disparity between Lamont’s support among higher income, college-educated voters and among those of more modest means.

Lieberman actually leads the race among those with no college degree (49-46) and among respondents making between $30,000 and $50,000 a year (49-45). Lamont, on the other hand, leads by the widest margins among college-educated voters (38-59) and those making more than $100,000 (39-60).

For what it’s worth.

UPDATE: Lieberman advisor Dan Gerstein, clearly in a good mood, just sent over the following interpretation of today’s poll results: “People are now fully paying attention, realizing what’s at stake, seeing Lamont is unqualified, and our speech last night will help make them comfortable coming home.”
