Report.

Hick's approvals are 48/46. He leads Tancredo 46-41 and Gessler 45-40.

Vulnerable with a decent opponent, which those 2 aren't. You can't get more polarized than that.

Worthless, noodle governor.  He's better off resigning.

IIRC, the last poll from them only had Hickenlooper up by one point against Tancredo, so I guess this could be considered a slight "improvement". Tongue

He's probably going to win but only because the GOP in Colorado thinks that Colorado is part of the Bible Belt.

This'll be a close one, but I expect Hick to carry it out in the end.

Colorado always looks bad for Democrats a year before the election, but it'll come home in the end.

Imagine if Republicans in Colorado didn't have a bench of loons!

Basically, he's started to govern from the left which has annoyed many of the conservatives in Colorado.

Would like to see PPP poll here, Qunnipac's numbers feel too optimistic for the Republicans, but we don't have other evidence to prove whether Colorado is souring on Democrats.

The CO GOP seem like "loons" because of the demographic changes which moved the state from reddish to bluish in a very short period of time.  As a result, the GOP got caught with their pants down and now, has rendered itself almost unelectable. 

I fully expect Hickenlooper to win another term and I don't think in the end, it will be that interesting.

I actually agree with you.

And obviously without a sane candidate the CO GOP stands no hope of making it competitive later on this year.

The poll is probably close against weak candidates  because it's early on. But I don't take it as a Hickenlooper scot free card since it shows that he is in a vulnerable political state. Esp. if he is governing more towards the left in a moderate leaning state like Colorado.

And keep in mind that the presidential race in CO last year didn't turn out to be much of a nail-biter either and it was a near must-win state for Mitt Romney.

That is how California went from a state that went generally R to overwhelmingly D.

Democrats pretty consistently do better than their polling numbers in Colorado, for whatever reason. Hickenlooper was only supposed to win by 5% or so in 2010; he ended up easily winning by double digits. Obama's average lead right before the election was only 1-2% in 2012; he won by 5%.

Obviously this doesn't really apply a year before the election, but anyone putting any stock into polls showing a Republican wave in Colorado hasn't been paying attention for the last six years or so.

Quinnipiac has a horrible track record in Colorado, even at the height of the Obama campaign in 2012 after the 47% video was released they only showed him with a 1 point lead.

Pete Wilson's immigration reform starting in the mid to late 90s was the end of the GOP in CA.
