Polls show U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman has managed to alienate Democrats, Republicans and independents alike.According to a Public Policy Polling survey yesterday, only one in four of the state's voters approve of the job the senator is doing.
Democrats loathe him most, with ony 14 percent still backing him, but Lieberman's not doing well among the rest of the electorate either. Only 39 of GOp voters support Lieberman and just 32 percent of independents.
"It's hard to see how he'll be around for another term," said Dean Debnam, president of the North Carolina-based polling outfit, according to this release.
Fortunately for Lieberman, he doesn't face the voters again until 2012. And that's a long time by political standards.
Of course, it appears Lieberman's strategy is to keep racking up enemies. It's not the typical politicians' style, but then Lieberman is clearly not the stereotypical senator.
