PPP also tested three-way race for Lieberman, Rep. Chris Murphy as the Democratic nominee and Republican financial commentator and Ron Paul activist Peter Schiff (who recently came in third place in the Republican primary for Senate) as the Republican candidate. The result was Murphy 39%, Schiff 25%, and Lieberman 19%.

Another three-way race put in Gov. Jodi Rell, who is retiring this year with relatively decent approval ratings, as the Republican candidate. This time it's Murphy 37%, Rell 29%, and Lieberman 17%.

In a direct two-way match, Murphy leads Lieberman by 47%-33%.

"Democrats, Republicans, and independents in Connecticut agree on one thing: they want Joe Lieberman replaced in the US Senate," writes PPP president Dean Debnam. "His path to reelection, at least at this point a couple years away, looks extremely difficult."
