Poll: Lieberman As Veep Hurts McCain -- In Florida!

Anyone wondering how Joe Lieberman would impact John McCain's chances among Jewish voters could do worse than looking at this new Mason-Dixon poll in the state -- it finds that twice as many voters are less likely to support McCain with Lieberman as Veep.
Twenty-seven percent of voters in Florida, where there's a large concentration of Jewish voters, say they're less likely to back McCain with Lieberman on the ticket. Half that -- 14% -- say they're more likely. Fifty-six percent say Lieberman's presence would make no difference.
Polls have shown that Lieberman on the ticket would even hurt McCain in his home state of Connecticut. If Lieberman hurts McCain in Connecticut and Florida, where the heck would Lieberman help him?
