Recent Quinnipiac and Rasmussen polls now show that Joe Lieberman and Ned Lamont are neck and neck among the voters of Connecticut in their pursuit of becoming a senator of the state. Immediately after the Lamont victory in the Democratic Primary Republicans were motivated and polls showed that Lieberman had up to a 12%. Now Lieberman has a 2% lead. Once again I must say that I have very little confidence in the electoral system in this country. The exit polls can show one thing and the actual results can show the complete opposite. Recently Joe Lieberman has made public appearances with Republican candidates infuriating Democrats. At least two Democratic groups have initiated a movement to remove Lieberman from the race due to Connecticut Democratic laws that state that candidates cannot claim to align themselves with the Democratic party if they have not been endorsed by the Democratic party voters in a primary election.
