Den Post: 50% of voters back Dem in governor's race; 35% say Beauprez
http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_4459569
Democrat Bill Ritter leads Republican Bob Beauprez for governor by 15 percentage points, according to a new poll.

Ritter is beating Beauprez in every region of the state, including Beauprez's own congressional district and Republican strongholds like the Western Slope and Colorado Springs.

The poll, conducted for The Denver Post by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, shows Ritter leading Beauprez 50 percent to 35 percent. The former Denver district attorney has siphoned Republicans from Beauprez and has collected the majority of unaffiliated voters.

It also shows Beauprez's unfavorable rating at 40 percent, 8 percentage points higher than those who view him favorably. As a result, political watchers say Ritter should continue what he's doing, but they also predict the final four weeks of the campaign season will be ugly.

1. Well, the slow-mo train wreck that is the Beauprez campaign
seems to be paying dividends for us. Even some of my Republican friends are bandying about words like "sleeze" to describe Beauprez, who seems to have the support of his family, the dog, and only the most diehard Republicans. It's going to be one of the highlights of election night when the news networks announce that Ritter has won. You'll probably be able to hear me cheer all the way from Canada.

2. I saw Beauprez's attack ad against Ritter
One word for it:

Pathetic.

All it's gonna do is give Ritter more votes from the Hispanic community.

Beauprez's dead meat, and even he knows it.
