1. Damn!

That's great. Every poll of the state has shown Bush with a lead in state...granted they've all been small.

This state may actually be in play.

On edit: Could this state have any reverse coattails? As I understand, Salazar is quite popular in the state and he could win it. I don't know how often these "reverse coattails" are in effect but that might help. Also Kerry was born in CO...I'm not sure but it may have an effect.

6. Or, purple maybe
with state legislation up for a vote that could split CO electoral votes (WTF?) according to population and send not only the law but the election back to the Supreme Court...

10. Colorado was purple in 2000.
Or lavender, at least.

17. 50 to 42. Not even close last time
This is a world of difference. I really think a huge GOTV in CO. could bring us the win.

4. Time to schedule some rallies for Colorado
Bush must be forced to earn Colorado as he did not have to in 2000. More Bush campaign money will have to be pissed away to secure a state he should have already locked up :)!

5. 45% is the magic number...
If Boy blunder's approval numbers remain under 45% in any of these states, watch the polls catch up eventually. We're starting to see some polls in states where there's a "double lag" in reaction to this regime.

The first lag is with the east & west coasts, who didn't like Bunnypants in the first place and sent his favorables under 45% last spring.

The second, and more telling lag is the "battleground states" like PA, Ohio, Mo and Michigan...all that have seen Bunnypants number crumble in the past 3 months. The PA & Michigan polls are trending strongly Kerry these days...and now...

We're starting to see some erosion in the "Red States"...Arizona, Nevada...and now Colorado. I'm glad to see this happening, since I know Colorado isn't that "Red" as its neighbors.

There are pundits who expect this election to break solidly one way or the other in the last weeks of the campaign. If Kerry gets this momentum, Colorado could be swept up in it.

7. The environment
I don't know a lot about the politics of Colorado, however, I do know Kerry has an impeccable record on the environment and I think the environment might be something of concern in that state. If Kerry exposes the chimps godawful record on the environment that may help. It would also be very interesting if they split the electoral votes.

My Colorado relatives will be delighted.

Even if Kerry doesn't win the state, I love the fact that Prez Dumbass will have to spend more moola there. Bwa-ha-ha-ha.

11. If the poll sample had been larger, I'm convinced the results
would have been even better.

12. Great news!
How reliable is this poll? I went and looked at RasmussenReports.com (http://www.rasmussenreports.com/Colorado_April.htm ). They haven't updated their CO polls since April. They still have it listed as a safe state for Bush. Its time for them to go look again!

14. I haven't seen
too many polls of this state. It probably didn't strike many as a battleground, but the great thing is several states that didn't seem to be battlegrounds are a bit too close for Bush's comfort (TN, VA, and NC being a few more). Kerry may not win these states, but Bush isn't going to win 'em without a fight.

Another nice thing is that Bush is doing shitty in the states Gore won. Most of the realistic battlegrounds are in states he won (or stole like FL).

16. most people in Colorado
have thought that the state has been in play this year. What's really encouraging is that this poll was done by a conservative outfit. Colorado will be a close state this year with Dems having a decent shot at winning there.

18. Can Salazar win?
I'm actually surprised that Coors is neck and neck with him.

19. Coors Commercials Everywhere -
he comes off as all folksey - never wearing a suit. Says at the end, I'm Pete Coors thanks for listening!

Salazar is hardly running any spots.

20. Unless you've seen a more recent poll than I...
Salazar, at least pre-primary, outpolled all of his rivals, Dem or Rep, by something like ten percentage points.

We Coloradans are determined to not only oust that fucker in the People's House, but to grab the Senate seat for Salazar, and to toss out the hateful Marilyn Musgrave. The rest is gravy!

21. I am stunned
We are told continuously that the race is neck and neck. Bush is in good shape with the RNC coming up.

Yet, in all the Democratic strongholds Kerry is blowing Bush away (16% in Cali for example)Then you look at states like North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and now Colorado all are very close, in fact, too close to call.

If Bush is in this much trouble in his strongholds then how can he be playing so close in battle-ground states? I hear Ohio is too close to call right now.

It appears Colorado and Tennessee are toomakes no sense.
