Senator Lieberman “more Republican” and doing better than worse…

Connecticut Independent Senator Joe Lieberman is “more Republican” and doing better than worse according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

The poll shows voters believed 51-25% that Senator Lieberman's views on issues are closer to the Republican Party than to the Democratic Party. But the big issue for re-election is his approval rating. Voters approve of Lieberman’s job performance 49-44%.

While being below the 50% threshold is not good, in a three-way race with a strong independent candidate 40% is likely a winning vote tally. Lieberman is not up for re-election until 2012 so there is some time for strange things to happen between now and 2012.
