43% for an incumbent only four weeks away from ballots dropping?

Ouch.


You mean ballots being mailed in?

Clerks start mailing ballots Oct. 14.

That's good to know. Do you think if the Republicans win they will do away with it? What are their priorities anyways? I mean, this campaign has focused so much on swiftboating Hick...

I'd almost expect them do away with same-day registration and create a new voter ID law.  But the advantage of running against a generally unpopular incumbent governor is that you are able to simply talk about his policies the whole time.  To be fair, Beauprez has outlined a lot on energy development, education, and cutting the state's regulatory burden.  But he hasn't had to deal with anything truly controversial because Hick as created enough controversy for the both of them.

Beauprez will be hit pretty hard I'm imagine over the next few weeks to try to bring his numbers down.  I don't know if that will work or not, but that's what the left will do to keep the seat.

Except Hickenlooper isn't unpopular...
Uh, if he was popular, he'd be in a Likely D race. He's in a Tossup race.
