AND LIEBERMAN MAKES 51:

Mortgage deal may hurt Dodd in 2010 (JOSH KRAUSHAAR, 2/17/09, Politico)

A 51 percent majority of Connecticut voters said they “definitely” or “probably” won’t be voting for him, with only 42 percent saying they’d likely support him.

A 56 percent majority of Connecticut voters said they were less likely to vote for him because of the mortgage controversy. Fifty-four percent of respondents didn’t buy Dodd’s explanation that the low-interest loans were a “courtesy” from Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo, and they want further details.

“Sen. Dodd is vulnerable. His approval has sunk to a new low. More voters disapprove than approve of the job he is doing for the first time in 15 years of polling,” said Quinnipiac Poll Director Douglas Schwartz. “The mortgage controversy has taken a toll on his approval rating.”
