Would you mind formatting your polls thusly?

The poll comes out like that when you enter the poll in the database. I have no control on how it is formatted.

No, I mean the subject of the poll here. Smiley  Sorry for the confusion.

By the way, my thanks for posting all of these -- I'm glad someone does it, and you certainly have your finger on the pulse of the polls being released.

Wait a second...Something here makes absolutely no sense mathematically. If Lamont is leading Lieberman 51-41 in the primary, how can he be tied with Lieberman in the general? For this to happen, Lamont has to be only trailing by a slight margin among independents and Republicans.

Anyways, if further polls confirm this result, we've got a race going on in CT.

Lieberman is running as an independent in the general.

Or you have a large (most likely, too large) sample of Democrats who will choose to back the party choice regardless of who they support in the primary.

You are right.  The numbers make no sense.   He can win.  But dont trust the general election numbers.

Exactly. There is no reason to assume Lieberman could hold onto his entire primary election base in the general. There's every reason to assume he couldn't, in fact. (Which is not to say that this poll is exactly accurate either, of course.)

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.
