Plenty of folks are wondering where fans of Joseph Lieberman will end up politically now that the Connecticut senator has crossed the aisle to endorse the presidential bid of his Republican Senate colleague John McCain.

It’s a hard question to answer, but exit polls from the Connecticut’s closed Democratic primary shed a little light.

The 32% of Connecticut Democratic primary-goers who said they had a favorable opinion of Lieberman split almost evenly among Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Clinton received 50% of their votes, while Obama got 47%.

Unsurprisingly, among the 74% of Connecticut Republican primary goers who had a favorable view of Lieberman, McCain was the winner, taking 57% of their vote to 33% for Mitt Romney.
