Josh on CT-Sen... why is Joe doing so well in Q-poll

Joshua Micah Marshall notes the new Quinnipiac poll that has Lieberman ahead of Lamont among likely voters by 53% to 41%. Josh attributes some of this to Lieberman's continued presence in the media in the days immediately following the election, while Lamont took a breather. There might be something to that, but it's also important to look at trends. Lamont shows dramatic improvement in this poll compared to the Q-poll of July 20.

Among registered voters (the earlier poll didn't ask likely voters) here's the trend.

Aug: Lieberman 49%, Lamont 38%, Schlesinger 4%,
July: Lieberman 51%, Lamont 27%, Schlesinger 9%
