G’s Polls. Mertens leads Senate race, and Lamont leads Gubernatorial Race.

NOV 20, 2009:  Poll numbers have changed significantly this week — and lots of commentary too — for Connecticut’s Senate Race in 2010.  John Mertens leads Sen. Dodd by 14 points at 52 to 35.

GroundUPCT’s poll for CT governor shows Lamont continuing to lead 32 points ahead at 54% to Bysiewicz at 22% and Malloy at 17%.

Pundits, especially outside of Connecticut, have talked about polls showing Sen. Lieberman with favorable ratings.  GroundUPCT viewers seemed to differ.  When asked what should Senate Democrats do if Lieberman filibusters health reform with Republicans, 69% said oust him from the Democrat Caucus and strip him of his leadership.  See more results below.
