It must be noted that the Colorado Republican party needs to get its house in order (exterminate the McCainiacs).

How will that get the Pubbie numbers up in Colorado again?

If you check the opinion polls, the voters are very irate that the Republicans are rolling over for the Democrats rather than seeking reduction in the scope and scale of the federal budget.

McCain and his acolytes are incessantly trying to "reach across the aisle" to try to implement the liberal Democrat agenda.

Now, if voters believed the Republicans would fight to implement the ideas they say they want (when seeking election), rather than compromising to implement the liberal Democrat agenda, the voters would be more likely to support them.

Why elect a second-rater (RINO) to do what a liberals Democrat will do?

Yes, that was the strategy Barry Goldwater followed in 1964. Maybe you were his campaign manager, and just put down roots thereafter.

First, would you please be so good as to provide the link for your 2010 exit poll?

I'm calling it:

There will be a court ruling out in favor of gay marriage no later than 2025.

Once stuff like this gains momentum it seldom takes more than 20 years.

The way gay marriage has been making gains, I'd be surprised if it took more than 10.

Thank you.

That's what I thought.

Neither link is to the House races.

In the Governor's race in 2010, the Constitution party candidate outpolled the Republican party nominee.

In the Senate race in 2010, the Republicans nominated a conservative, so the McCainiacs refused to vote in that election.

In short, in those two statewide races in 2010 there was a really bizarre result.

Do you really believe those where typical?!?

What percent of the Colorado electorate are McCainiacs? Do they have much sway in statewide elections? How much voted for Bennet over Buck? Please cite!

They are a relatively small percentage of the voters in Republican party, given their repeated defeats in primaries there.

However, the Democrat Senator was elected (he had been appointed to the office) with less than half the vote case.

"while split on gays"

Funny, considering that Colorado elected, and then reelected, the first openly gay Congressman

I'd imagine his district isn't as split Tongue

Given that Jared Polis would sooner have been dragged behind a pickup truck for ten miles than elected to Congress in some of the state's other districts, yeah, Colorado is definitely pretty split on gays.

Looks like PPP is a R2K reprise.


Not really. If you followed the 2010 election at all, you'd know that PPP has a slight Republican bias.

We are definitely looking at one state that is not "trending" Republican.

Also, I'm enjoying CARLHAYDEN very much in this thread.

Aaron is pissed:

She was like "How did you get my number?  I don't handle this issue.  You have to call the South Bryant Campus for that.  I'll transfer you, but I don't handle it."  She said it in a slightly condescending tone.  I didn't tell her that Grumps gave me the number.  I just told her I looked it up.

I thought Wisconsin and Ohio would be better than that. Not even 40% support? Boo. I have a feeling Illinois is going to be more like Iowa/Minnesota and Indiana is more like Wisconsin/Ohio.

Probably people realizing that merely electing a Governor from the 90's won't bring back the 90's.

Kentucky doesn't like the gays either, but we already knew that before:

Do you think same-sex marriage should be legal or illegal?

Legal............................................................... 26%
Illegal .............................................................. 62%

PA now in favor of gay marriage, says F&M:

CU1. The state legislature is considering several proposals related to gay marriage and civil
unions. Would you favor or oppose a constitutional amendment that would allow
homosexual couples to get legally married?

50% Support
42% Oppose

CU2. Would you favor or oppose a state law that would allow homosexual couples to legally
form civil unions, giving them some of the legal rights of married couples?

62% Support
34% Oppose

Damn the Northeast is on fire! I think the Southwest (minus Utah) and the Midwest is going to follow the Northeast and the West Coast soon. Last will be the Southeast. SCOTUS will probably legalize it before they hit majority support.
