Lieberman's Favorable Ratings Take A Dive


Recent polls indicate that Sen. Joe Lieberman did himself no favors in obstructing both a public option and Medicare Expansion, something he supported just three months ago. This trend is not surprising, give that Holy Joe's opposition to the public option was not popular in Connecticut. From The Hill:

Sen. Joe Lieberman's (I-Conn.) favorable ratings have taken almost a 10-point drop in the past two weeks, a new poll found.

31 percent of people told a CNN poll conducted Dec. 16-20 that they had a favorable opinion of Lieberman, a key Senate centrist who'd opposed healthcare reform only until recently. Opinion toward Lieberman, though, was down from a 40 percent favorable rating in the same CNN poll conducted December 2-3 of this year.

Poll respondents' unfavorable opinion of Lieberman ticked upward over the same period. 34 percent of those polled said they now have an unfavorable opinion of Lieberman, compared to 28 percent who have an unfavorable opinion.
