Lieberman Approval Tanks in Connecticut

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Connecticut finds Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) with a dismal 25% approval rating while 67% give him bad marks.

Key finding: President Obama's approval rating with Connecticut Republicans is higher than Lieberman's with the state's Democrats.

In addition, Lieberman "managed to antagonize both sides with his actions during the health care debate. Among voters who support the health care bill 87% disapprove of how Lieberman handled it with only 10% supporting it. But by voting for the final product after getting it watered down he also managed to earn the unhappiness of constituents opposed to the bill, 52% of whom say they disapprove of what Lieberman did to 33% in support."

"Overall just 19% of voters in the state say they like what Lieberman did on the issue with 68% opposed."
