PPP: CO-Governor race Hickenlooper has double digit lead
Edited on Wed Aug-11-10 03:22 PM by WI_DEM


Hickenlooper Strong With or Without Tancredo in Race
Raleigh, N.C. After coming from way behind in the last few months to beat ethically
troubled Scott McInnis in the Republican primary last night, Dan Maes has an even more
daunting challenge if he hopes to take the Colorado governorship from the Democrats
this fall. Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper leads Maes by double digits whether
American Constitution candidate Tom Tancredo stays in the race or not, but when the
Republican vote is split, Hickenlooper has a decisive advantage.
In a two-way, Hickenlooper tops Maes 50-38, with 12% undecided. In the threecandidate
race, Hickenlooper barely falls to 48%, with Maes and Tancredo locked at 23%
and 22% of the vote, respectively; only 7% are undecided then. Hickenlooper gets 11%
of the GOP vote against just Maes, to Maes 6% of the Democratic vote, but the mayor
even gets 10% in the three-way, with Maes at only 48% to Tancredos 32% of
Republicans. Hickenlooper pulls 87% or 88% of his own partys support in either
configuration, and he leads Maes with independents, 52-29, and has 46% to Tancredos
32% and Maes 13%.

2. Plus he's got the greatest name.
Hickenlooper.

Say it out loud. It just rolls off the tongue.

It sounds like a toy brand name "Hey Mom! Watch me play with my Hickenlooper brand Yo-Yo (tm)!"
