Title: CO-Quinnipiac: Beauprez (R) up 1
Post by: Tender Branson on July 16, 2014, 05:08:03 am
44% Beauprez (R)
43% Hickenlooper (D)

From July 10 - 14, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,147 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.

This is surprising how tight it is getting. It may be a bounce, but still.

Wow, just, wow. I didn't expect to see Beauprez lead in any poll soon, let alone a nonpartisan one of registered voters.

So, it looks like Beauprez is narrowly leading within the MoE among Independents. The poll also indicates that Beauprez is has a bigger lead with men than Hickenlooper's advantage with women.

Quote
The gender gap is wide today as men back Beauprez 48 - 37 percent, while women back Hickenlooper 48- 40 percent. Hickenlooper leads 90 - 4 percent among Democrats, while Beauprez takes Republicans 86 - 7 percent. Independent voters are divided with 41 percent for Beauprez and 40 percent for Hickenlooper.

I wish they had asked the respondents who they voted for in the 2012 presidential election and a few other things to tell us about the sample, but this poll doesn't seem to have any glaring faults.

Mr. 47% is ahead?

Hickenlooper can fix that.

Is everyone ignoring the fact there was a poll yesterday that had Hick up 6%? Round the two together and Hick is winning by about 2.5%.

Nice, though I remain doubtful. Why didn't they poll the Senate race? ???

I am still hopeful about OH. Usually, OH votes with CO in prez elections. The gap between Fitzgerald and Beauprez has narrowed in the past mnth or so between the two.

I'm skeptical myself. This is way off-mark and I'd like to get confirmation from another reputable pollster (read: not Rasmussen) before labeling this as a toss-up.

Haven't heard from Rasmussen on Fox News lately since 2012 election.

Did people forget that Hickenlooper is a weak governor?  Why should he get another 4 years if the last 4 weren't all that great in my opinion?  Some people are better at certain things than others, and Hickenlooper was definitely better at brewing beer at Wynkoop brewery than governing a state.

Because others' opinions might differ from yours.

Current polls with Beauprez closing in, indicate otherwise.

Don't forget that Hickenlooper was Denver Mayor for 8 1/2 years.

Great news! Beauprez will rescue Colorado from Hickenloopercare!

The economy will trump other issues gun control/death penalty/fracking etc. in the end. Colorado's economy is very strong at the moment under Hickenlooper in the end he should win.

If Hickenlooper won in 2010, he'll win in 2014.

He won in 2010 because the alternative was Tancredo. Enough said.

I'd like you to meet a friend of mine.
