Barring vote fraud, I think we’re going to win the Senate race, perhaps the Governor race as well. I’m cautiously hopeful for Colorado conservatives.
I’m not. I don’t care enough any more. I am pretty close to just giving up and moving into a cave somewhere.
With CO “caution” is required and usually insufficient.
What’s scary is how fast Colo flipped.
From +5 Bush 2004 to +5 Obama in 2012 (I consider the +9 in 2008 to be an outlier).
CO is such a beautiful state and used to be pretty reliable for the GOP.
The fraud and dem GOTV effort has become a serious problem.
Democrats have gotten very good at “winning” close senate races.
Think how big a year 2010 could have been.
We cleaned up in the House but let a lot to be desired in the senate.
Lots of close losses.
I feel Senate races are much different than House races.
There are hundreds of house races, but only about 10 senate races (or less) every two years that are really contested closely.
The journ-0-lists of the MSM put their full efforts into influencing those Senate elections. Mourdoch here in Indiana was a flawed candidate, but part of his failure was inability to take on a full bore onslaught from the media.
Gray skies are gonna clear up, put on a happy face.
Another poll, Quinnipiac, has Cory G ahead by 44%-42%
I was surprised to see Beauprez had closed the gap in the Governor’s race, good news.
