2006 Connecticut Senatorial Primary

The preliminary results of the 2006 Connecticut Senatorial Primary between incumbent Democrat Joseph Lieberman and challenger Ned Lamont are in. With 99.6% of the precincts having reported, Lamont defeats Lieberman 146,065 to 136,150 (51.8% to 48.2%). This is a more narrow margin than the more recent polls by Rasmussen and Quinnipiac University had predicted.The preliminary town results map (shown at right) shows the relative strenghts of each of the two Democratic candidates. Much of the state was relatively evenly split. Lieberman was strongest in the route 8 corridor – West Haven, Derby, Ansonia up through Naugatuck, Waterbury and Thomaston. Lamont’s strength was centered in the northwestern portion of the state (Litchfield County – with his strongest town Cornwall), the south near Lyme, the northeast near Mansfield, and Lamon’t hometown, Greenwich.

    Thanks for the map. I have been trying to obtain the voting district breakdowns within each city and town which I believe would show some interesting facts about how various ethnic neighborhoods voted and the impact of colleges on the vote.

    So far, I have received limited results with Hartford being the most responsive and New Haven and Bridgeport being almost unresponsive.

    I would be glad to provide this data or work on any other data you might need from this year’s election or 2004. Please let me know.
