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.
I have to agree with you. Even though we don’t like the messenger, we are dealing with brainwashed fools who respond to prompts and are incapable of critical thinking. More and more people vote the check in their mailbox and don’t care about anything else. The wealthy elitists and college kids vote their religion. It’s a tough combination to beat.
Gardner is an excellent candidate. But the Udall’s have spread around the west like cancer.
The political landscape has changed. It's not 2008 anymore. This poll was sponsored by leftists who have sunk a million bucks already for Udall.
A few months ago, this same pollster who said they did not believe their own polling and didn't even report it until after the fact that St. Senator Heron from Pueblo, CO would lose. Pueblo is a Dem stronghold, but Heron lost ground by 24% in her recall election that she earlier won by 12%.
"Honest" PPP: yeah we got the winner right, but said only publicly about a week after the election results. LoL. Right sure uhuh.
A few short months ago, Colorado is the same place where 3 recalled Dem senator lost their seats. Two rats recalled and the third was scared into resigning.
And if you haven't noticed, Obama and Udall are tied at the hip. So how is Obama polling in Colorado recently? Oh Obama is down by -21% (59% - 38%) in a recent Colorado disapproval poll.
Democrats are clearly worried about this race.
“PPP is not openly biased. They have been the most accurate pollster for 3 cycles now.”
Curious wording, 4 point race or 2 point race, not that much difference.
Republican registrations outnumber Dems, 944,000 to 902,000, ---and have higher turnout in off-year elections. So, the number should probably be reversed, 47% Gardner, 43% Udall.
CO means perpetual disappointment.
No, because a third of the CO GOP consists of hard-core liberals too.
Actually, the swing vote in Colorado is Hispanic, Asian, and Black.
They make up roughly 20% of eligible voters, and, as a group, they went 80% for Obama in 2012.
You might be surprised to learn that white voters supported Romney, 54%-44%, over Obama.
Karl Rove said on Fox that the Democrats ice spending millions of dollars in the Senate races to trash the Republican even before the final nominees chosen.
I think you’ll find that those groups are concentrated in the areas I described, though. Couple them with the college students in those areas and the voting mass outweighs the whites in the rest of the state.
Anyway, I just don’t like those dooshes in Boulder County.
Boulder, obviously, is more white and more Leftist than the average American town.
But, nationally, white college students gave Romney a slight majority in 2012.
Time and again I read that Republicans are losing the youth vote.
That is not correct.
We are losing the non-white youth vote.
Young people vote very much like their parents, but a little bit more to the Left.
Each year, thanks to 30 years of mass LEGAL immigration, young people become more and more non-white.
Consequently, each year, more young people vote for the Left.
