The drive to recall a top Colorado Democratic legislator over his gun-control support received a boost Thursday from a newly released poll showing a plurality of his constituents support removing him from office. A poll by Public Opinion Strategies showed that 34 percent of district voters surveyed support the recall of state Senate President John Morse, versus 29 percent who oppose it. Another 33 percent said they were undecided on the recall effort, which is still in the signature-gathering phase.
When told that Mr. Morse sponsored an unsuccessful bill to make manufacturers and owners liable for crimes committed with their guns, however, undecided voters took sides. At that point 56 percent of those surveyed said they favor recalling the Colorado Springs Democrat. The voters in Senate District 11 are clearly leaning toward recalling Senator Morse, said Laura Carno, president of the Colorado Springs-based I Am Created Equal, the free-market womens group that sponsored the poll.
They are paying attention to the gun bill debate, they dont have high favorable image of Sen. Morse, and are more sharply in favor of the recall when they hear of proposed legislation, said Ms. Carno in a statement. Organizers have until June 3 to submit 7,178 valid signatures to force a recall election, but Mr. Morse isnt waiting around for the outcome. His counter-campaign, A Whole Lot of People for John Morse, has hired Chicago media outlet Adelstein Liston to place $15,000 in pro-Morse ads on a Colorado Springs television station, according to the conservative website Colorado Peak Politics.
The poll, which surveyed 250 Colorado voters living in Mr. Morses legislative district from May 1-2, found that 69 percent said they are paying close attention to the states gun debate. The poll has a +/- 6.2 percent margin of error.

WHO is the replacement candidate??? Colorado conservatives have a record of NOT coming up with a serious candidate in time.
BZZZZZZ! "When told" = push poll. When you educate the respondent, you're warping the poll. The majority may want to recall his ass, but this poll is rejected.
The initial poll was encouraging, but the push poll is instructive because it reveals exactly what the ‘Recall Morse’ ads should emphasize. Whatever. The point is that Morse needs to be flushed down the toilet like a morning drunk turd.
It’s time to teach the buffoons who the boss is here. Violating the Second Amendment rights of Coloradans isn’t a very smart move. They should have been taught that in college. If they went to college. If not, they should have learned it in high school.
This Coloradan has felt starved for good news quite some while.
That’s way more than enough voters to get the ball rolling to recall Morse.
If you wish to be removed from my ping list, please FreepMail me. Thanks! Jean in St.Pete, FL

I’m up on Monument so out of his district, but the recall effort must be scaring Morse somewhat based on the negative/scare tactic radio ads he’s been running on the country stations!
The ads and robo-calls are actually having a reverse effect and helping to get the word out. So nice of Bloomberg, et al to help. It’s nice to see the arrogant POS getting scared.
