"Ned Lamont may have won the primary but his supporters are not mainstream Democrats. They're against the Iraq war. A position so extreme that only 86% of Democrats agree with him"

Emailer Mike writes:

With Ned Lamont's remarkable victory in Tuesdays Connecticut Senate primary over Senator Joe Lieberman, those on the other side of the aisle have been looking to paint Lamont supporters as "fringe" and "out of touch with mainstream America." However, a quick glance at recent polling shows that Ned Lamont's camp is certainly "in touch" with the majority of Americans and overhwleming so with the Democratic party as a whole. With the MSM's penchant for polling, it's amazing that this rhetoric is peddled and accepted with little to no scrutiny.

It's not just the 86% of Democrats, but also the 60% of Americans as a whole who share the same views as Lamont. I guess Americans are out of touch with America in the eyes of the wingnuts.
