Yippee-skippee. Lamont, Lieberman neck-and-neck

O.K., I suppose I should be more enthusiastic about this:
(CNN) -- A new poll by the American Research Group indicated a statistical dead heat in the U.S. Senate race in Connecticut between upstart Democratic nominee Ned Lamont and incumbent Sen. Joseph Lieberman.

Some 44 percent of respondents deemed "likely voters" supported Lieberman, while 42 percent said they would vote for Lamont in the November election. This gap was well within the margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.5 percentage points. Republican nominee Alan Schlesinger got backing from 3 percent of likely voters.
I'm sure David Sirota, who put a lot of personal effort into backing Lamont, will be doing cartwheels about now. But Lamont's still just some rich guy who'll will look after the interests of his own class first, then throw the rest of us a few crumbs.
