Whoa what a poll.  Those Bennett v. Buck numbers show how the negative tea party numbers can really negatively impact their candidates now.  Bennett only won by a small margin in 2010 and now its much higher

I'm really surprised Udall's numbers aren't higher. Anyone know why? He's not a flaming Boulder liberal.

Maybe I haven't been paying attention, but what has Ken Buck been doing to make himself so unpopular? I mean, I know he was never particularly loved, but I thought he basically disappeared from the scene after losing the Senate race. How do so many people care about him enough to have a negative opinion?

I'm not sure, but on election day, Buck wasn't horribly unpopular; he only had a 44/48 favorable rating.

For some reason, PPP has chosen to drastically oversample Democrats and undersample  Republicans and Other (Independents and minor parties) in Colorado.  Here is a comparison between the latest voter registration numbers (http://www.sos.state.co.us/pubs/elections/VoterRegNumbers/2011/July/VotersByPartyStatus.pdf)  and PPPs numbers:

Party                    PPP          Registration
Democrat             41 %               33 %
Republican           33                   38
Others                 26                   29

Wait, how did the GOP regain so much ground, I thought they were down to a 1 pt lead in registration?

The table in the link that CARLHAYDEN posted shows that whoever compiled these data differentiated between "active" and "inactive" registered voters. If you only look at the "active" voters, the gap between the Republicans and the Democrats is larger than if you count both "active" and "inactive" registered voters. Maybe that's the reason.
