Liberman is leading with Republicans

From Quinnipiac here:
"Sen. Lieberman's support among Republicans is nothing short of amazing. It more than offsets what he has lost among Democrats. As long as Lieberman maintains this kind of support among Republicans, while holding onto a significant number of Democratic votes, the veteran Senator will be hard to beat," said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D.

"Ned Lamont's Democratic primary win was based on a very small percentage of voters statewide. He must expand beyond this base if he is going to beat Lieberman."

I don't think even with the Nutroots support by MyDD and DailyKos will help Lamont beat Lieberman. Even though I'm a republican and conservative, Sen. Lieberman is right on the war on terror, supports our troops and mission in Iraq. Maybe on the social issues I don't agree, but on the war on terror and national defense he is right.
