push-poll questions done for a group that has already dropped a million dollars in the race, someone is certainly trying to slap some lipstick on a pig.
Skip to comments.Democratic Pollster Has Udall Breaking Ahead Of Gardner In Colorado
Posted on 05/17/2014 6:04:03 AM PDT by george76
Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall is inching ahead of Republican challenger Cory Gardner, according to a new poll that was reportedly commissioned by the same group running a $1.3 million ad campaign against Gardner.
Democratic pollster Public Policy Polling has Udall ahead by a slim margin of 47-43 percent. A poll done in March by the same group showed a much narrower race, with Udall ahead by only 42-40 percent.
The poll shows that Udall still has his work cut out for him, with 45 percent disapproving of his job performance as U.S. Senator compared to 42 percent who approve.
Those who responded to the survey identified themselves as 36 percent Democrat, 31 percent Republican and 33 percent Independent/Other.

Important race, but so to the race for Governor.
oops, the too police are soon to arrive.
Voters who list the economy back Gardner over Udall 53 - 40 percent and voters who cite health care back the Republican 57 - 36 percent.
Colorado voters oppose the Affordable Care Act 59 - 37 percent, including 62 - 34 percent among independent voters.
Openly biased pollsters ask the gullible to believe their poll results aren’t biased.
‘Democratic Pollster Has Udall Breaking Ahead Of Gardner In Colorado’
Democratic pollster? Well, duh.
(Actually, one can’t underestimate the voting power of the public employees concentrated in the Denver area, and the college students in Boulder/Fort Collins. Eliminate those areas/demographics and it would be a fine State.)
The margin is close, and Gardener has two big issues on his side. Let's see how he campaigns, but let's not dismiss polls because we don't like the results.
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
‘Don’t start this again. The pollsters were right on the money in 2008 and 2012, esp. in the senate races.’
Loosen up, friend.
I thought I addressed what you’re talking about in my aside.
As someone else put it on FR, the Udalls are political pests.
Nobody would like to see him gone more than I.
However, until something is done with the ideological cancer in Denver-Boulder-Fort Collins (did I leave out Pueblo?), it will always be an uphill struggle for Conservatives in Colorado.
Another in the series of polls designed to help Democrats improve their fundraising capabilities and having nothing to do with the real voter sentiment
PPP is not openly biased. They have been the most accurate pollster for 3 cycles now. While we should always be skeptical of any source and with whom they are aligned, the math speaks. We should never be skeptical of proven results.
Just a reminder about PPP in the Colorado district in which a State Leg (female) was recalled IIRC, about the gun law and PPP did NOT report their polling showing she would get recalled by a fairly large margin. (PPP thought their poll was wrong). This non-reporting of the real results of their poll helped embolden those who thought that the recall election was ‘stolen’.
The problem will be getting all the zoned Democrats to the polls. If they can’t, they probably have pre-marked ballots to assist the stoned who can’t remember who to vote for. Democrats really care about helping their voters, doncha know.
The Machine has been doing ads on Gardner’s pro-life stand with no response.
It is the only thing the RATS can do and they are very good at it.
Here is what the response ads need to say:
Udall is 110% supporter of the Obama message and long term plan.
Global tax on USA carbon emissions
Exporting jobs to 3rd world countries thru H1B
Reducing wages of USA worker
Opposed Keystone Pipeline
Government Mandates on employee pay
Radical Unionization of Healthcare workers
Udall connections to radical left wing organizations
Udall family and years in politics
CA and NY $$$ funding Udall attack ads
The list goes on and on.
Udall is vulnerable on all these items.
The Denver-Boulder axis of evil will ensure that Udall and Gov. Chickeneffer will win.
That is why the DUmmies want mail in voting to help the dead and the illegals to vote [ often ] without any photo id.
As a native Arizonian, who had to deal with Mo Udall for years, no one knows this family needs to be gone better than I. CO has changed a lot. Let’s hope Gardener can hammer home the Obamacare message.
I promise, this poll is super accurate
YAWN: Breaking Down The Fallacies Of The PPP Senate Poll
As if PPP methods werent suspect already.
Lets deconstruct this mess:
Q4 If a candidate for office voted to provide billions of dollars in tax breaks to oil companies, would that make you more or less likely to vote for them in an election, or would it not make a difference?
Q5 Which candidate for U.S. Senate do you think would be more likely to do the bidding of big oil companies: Mark Udall or Cory Gardner?
Billions of dollars in tax breaks is never given any context. For all we know these could be standard corporate tax breaks that even Udall has voted for; hell, just last week Warren Buffet admitted the only reason he builds wind-turbines is for the tax breaks.
do the bidding of Gardner could be doing the bidding of the Easter Bunny and it would still sound nefarious.
Bottom line: this is a desperation poll by a group that has already sunk a million dollars behind a candidateUdallthat is in serious trouble.
