Lieberman’s Approval Falls

Things are not going well for Joe Lieberman. Public Policy Polling  finds that “Barack Obama’s approval rating with Connecticut Republicans is higher than Lieberman’s with the state’s Democrats.” His approval among Democrats is down to 14 percent, with 81 percent disapproving.

There’s been talk that he will run for reelection as a Republican. Republicans like him more than Democrats do, but still don’t like him very much. Republicans disapprove of him by a 48/39 margin and independents disapprove of him by 61/32 spread. Overall his approval is only 25 percent.

    Good. He deserves every kick he’s getting. The fact that Republicans are doing some of the kicking is a good sign. In the end, nobody likes a switch hitter. Lieberman is probably sitting there, scratching his head, and wondering what happened.

    He should have expected limited acceptance from Republicans. Sure, they would like him better than Democrats, but ultimately most of today’s Republicans only have interest in someone on the extreme right.
