CT-Sen: Rasmussen Polls Three Way; Zogby finds Dems Happy With Lamont Win

Also, Zogby Interactive (yeah, the highly questionable Internet polls) finds Dems thrilled with Lamont's victory:It found that nearly four out of five Democrats (79%) were happy the former Democratic vice presidential nominee was knocked off by Lamont, a wealthy cable television executive whose campaign focused almost exclusively on his opposition to the war and Liebermans support of it. Just 12% said they were not pleased with the results of the primary, which riveted political junkies across the nation. Another 10% of Democrats said they were not sure what to think.
Nearly two in three 62% - said they believe the results of the Connecticut primary will hold national implications for the elections coming up this fall. In addition, 70% said they think the Lamont victory makes the Democratic Party stronger heading into the important election season.
A majority of Democrats said they believe the Lamont victory points to a Democratic takeover of at least one house of Congress this fall, while 27% said they believe it is a precursor to victories that will result in Democratic control of both the U.S. House and Senate. Republicans now hold control of both the House and the Senate. Make what you will of the Zogby poll. What I really want to know is why didn't Winston Smith, a frequent MyDD commenter and diarist, post the Rasmussen poll over here instead of only posting it at Dailykos? I feel jilted.
