Obama tied with Romney in Colorado in Denver Post poll


The poll results first announced Friday on the noon broadcast of DPTV show Obama ahead of Romney by a single, statistically insignificant percentage point, 47 to 46 percent. When former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, who is running as the Libertarian nominee for president, is factored in, Obama's single-percentage-point lead remains, 45 percent to 44 percent. Johnson registers at 3 percent of the vote.

1. No, one point is not insignificant.

It's remarkable how little pollsters actually know about polling. The odds of Romney leading in this poll are worse than Obama ... even with the margin of error. So, no, a one-point lead, while not significantly large, is significant enough.
