Lieberman losing thus far
With 89 percent of precincts counted, Lamont leading with 52 percent, or 127,786 votes, to Lieberman's 48 percent, or 119,867 votes. Turnout appears to have doubled--a good sign of people's disgust with Lieberman. If he runs as an independent, so much the better--it might lead to some long-needed soul-searching within the Democratic party.
