Isn't this the third of four polls with 47-40% for Polis?

Is this a harbinger of how things will now be in Colorado? Polish and Stapleton seem to be quintessential generic partisans.

And the experts had this as a super close Toss-Up for over a year. Who would've guessed that they were wrong??? (I did, as did several other posters on this forum)

Wow. If Stapleton is down by seven in a Republican internal, he might even lose the actual election by double digits.

I agree. And it is very possible, given that Bob Beauprez lost by 16 in 2006, the last major Democratic wave year.

I wonder about that as well. I certainly am not helping them in that regard, since I've voted to reelect the incumbent Republican Secretary of State, Wayne Williams.  However, I have voted for the Democratic nominees in the other statewide races (Phil Weiser and Dave Young), in addition to Polis.

Yes. Colorado is a Safe D state now, and it will be for a long time to come.

I thought Polis would win but not by double digits. But now that looks to be the case.

I agree. And it is very possible, given that Bob Beauprez lost by 16 in 2006, the last major Democratic wave year.

against someone who was a centrist, if not mildly conservative. This is against maybe not a radical but someone who is very liberal.

Polis is definitely liberal, but he's not that much different from Governor Hickenlooper, if you really think about it. He is an inoffensive generic Democrat and comes off as reserved.

Moreover, Colorado has an inherent bias for Democratic Governors. It has elected four Democrats and one Republican over the past forty-four years. This election is merely a continuation of that trend. And Democrats have won almost every gubernatorial election by double digits in that period, with the exceptions of 1974, 1998, 2002, and 2014.

I know who you were talking about, but Hickenlooper is very similar ideologically to Ritter, and I was drawing the comparison between Polis and the current incumbent.

I just see Ritter and Polis in a different light, I guess.

That is understandable. As I said, I do think Polis is more liberal than Ritter, but Polis isn't a radical departure from the kinds of Governors Colorado has tended to elect.
