This is awesome news:
Sen. Joe Lieberman, under fire from activists in his own party, has lost ground to his challenger and is narrowly trailing him for the first time in their race for the Democratic nomination, a new poll released Thursday shows.
Businessman Ned Lamont had support from 51 percent and Lieberman from 47 percent of likely Democratic voters in the latest Quinnipiac University poll - a slight Lamont lead given the survey's sampling error margin of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
Lieberman had led in a Quinnipiac poll last month, 55 percent to 40 percent.
The new poll suggests that Lieberman still could win a fourth term, even if he loses the Democratic primary Aug. 8, however.
Lieberman filed papers last week that will allow him to petition his way onto the November ballot. The poll found that among all registered Connecticut voters surveyed, including non-Democrats, Lieberman had the support of 51 percent, followed by Lamont with 27 percent and Republican Alan Schlesinger with 9 percent.
For this big of a turn around in numbers, the Democrats in Connecticut must be upset with Lieberman's latest act of party mutiny in the name of self-preservation.

As always, Jane has much more on the race.
