Skip to comments.Rasmussen Colorado poll: Romney 47, Obama 45
Posted on 09/18/2012 10:09:17 AM PDT by kingattax
Despite all the hand-wringing about Mitt Romneys campaign (see, e.g., here, here, and here), Romney is slightly ahead of President Barack Obama in Colorado, a key battleground state, according to the latest Rasmussen poll.
The article on Rasmussens website is incorrectly dated August 7, 2012. The poll was carried out yesterday and the results were published today.
Six percent of survey respondents were undecided. Typically in a race against an incumbent, undecided voters break toward the challenger.
The Rasmussen poll follows a Denver post poll last week showing Obama 1 point ahead of Romney.
Colorado has 9 electoral votes.
Ras has always been wrong. The guy couldn’t poll who liked chocolate. In 2008 he was dead last.
Polls are nothing but “reality TV” for the brain dead masses.
um.. was that sarcasm?

Rasmussen by far the most accurate in the last four years. Dead on in 08. He was one point behind some other pollster because the other had the “spread” closer, but way oversampled Obama.
Ignorance of this magnitude borders on negligence. I pray your forget the /sarc tag.
Agreed. This is huge news. If Romney is up in Colorado, that means Obama is cratering elsewhere.
In 2008 he was dead last.
Not 08 but maybe you were referring to 2000 when Ras blew it big time.
Happy to hear my home state is coming to its senses. We’ve had to endure 3 0bama visits in the last month.
Romney up in recent polls in Florida and Colorado.....Gallup...Nationally Obama bounce fades to mere 1 point lead.
is Toad code for troll?
I think you got that 100% right.
How is discussing a poll make someone a ‘troll’? Did you just get off on thinking you’re being popular by using the term? What a immature moron.
So? Polls are still for the feeble minded masses.
Now show us the Colorado polling results, which is what this article is about.
UAF in Colorado means “unaffiliated” or Independents.
no problem :)
If polls were meaningless, the candidates wouldn’t spend millions on their internal ones.
Polls are important, but they do need to be examined and not taken at face value.
