Joe Lieberman less than a week before Connecticut's Democratic primary, according to a poll released Thursday.Lamont, a political novice, had support from 54 percent of likely Democratic voters in the Quinnipiac University poll, while Lieberman, now in his third term, had support from 41 percent of voters. The sampling error margin was plus or minus 3 percentage points.
