Question: Lieberman Too Moderate For D’s?

Issue: Lieberman campaign promises fight in last 2 days: Poll released last week shows challenger leading 54% to 41%/Associated Press

More Info: Lieberman, a three-term incumbent and his party’s vice presidential candidate in 2000, has been dogged by liberal Democrats angry at him for supporting the war in Iraq. Lamont, a political newcomer and founder of a cable company, has capitalized on the war’s unpopularity in Connecticut by accusing Lieberman of being too close to Republicans and President Bush. A Quinnipiac University poll released last week showed the Greenwich businessman leading Lieberman 54 percent to 41 percent.

Question: Will national Demos be hurt in the eyes of the electorate nationwide, if Connecticut D’s dump him for a more liberal candidate?
