With only five days to go before their Aug. 8 Democratic primary, the political novice has opened up a commanding lead on the three-term senator from Connecticut. (Even with the 3% margin of error, Lamont is dusting his opponent.) h/t: Huff Po
Wait, before you go…
HARTFORD, Conn. – Millionaire businessman Ned Lamont opened a double-digit lead over veteran Sen. Joe Lieberman less than a week before Connecticut’s Democratic primary, according to a poll released Thursday.
Lamont, a political novice, had support from 54 percent of likely Democratic voters in the Quinnipiac University poll, while Lieberman, now in his third term, had support from 41 percent of voters. The sampling error margin was plus or minus 3 percentage points.
A similar survey July 20 showed Lamont with a slight advantage for the first time in the campaign. Link
