Most Democrats Happy Lieberman Lost

A Zogby poll shows that an overwhelming majority of Democrats are satisfied with the results of the Connecticut Democratic primary. 79% say they are glad that Ned Lamont won the primary, 12% said they were disappointed with the results, and 11% were unsure.

These are surprising numbers. This indicates a) that moderate and even conservative Democrats are interested in more aggressive opposition to President Bush; b) that most Democrats nationwide were paying attention to the Connecticut primary; c) that Lieberman will probably have to rely more on Republican support at the polls than Democratic support, meaning his support for the war might perhaps become more pronounced.
