BigMO:

That means that McInnis has had an 11 point bump in three months. And given PPP's liberal lean, and Rasmussen't rightward lean, it's safe to say that right now McInnis is up by a few points. I still think that the Senate poll yesterday was way off. Once the Senate primary in Colorado is over you'll start to see Republican voters coalesce over a single candidate and broaden their lead against Bennet.

But the real remarkable news here is that McInnis is trending in a very positive direction and could end up beating Hickenlooper a sizable percentage.

THIS CANNOT BE HAPPENING!!!

The last time this same pollster had the Dem up by 11. At this rate, by election time the Dem will be well into negative numbers. The entire Dem party will not only be dead and buried, any memory if its existence will be expunged from the electorate's collective recall.

OH, THE HORROR!!!!

BTW, THIS sample does have 14% Hispanics. And guess what? 37% favor the Repub. They probably just haven't heard the news from across the AZ border yet. Or they could just be self-Loathing Latins. Yeah, that's it..

14% of 1000 is 140. 37% of that is about 50.

The MOE on that Latino subset is way, way to high to draw that conclusion from.

Field Marshal:

PPP is obviously trying to mend their obviously biased prior polling to more accurate numbers.

No, Dems were up by 11 like 2 months ago, and than the GOP had a lead last time. I think Dems have gained a little since the last poll.

Look at the favorables. Hickenlooper wins it easily.

well, i don't like this one bit; I guess the CO Senate race is still leaning more GOP, but between Paul getting the nomination in KY and that Rasmussen Sestak v Toomey poll (which is post-primary bump-up at this point), I'm worried about the GOP making more significant gains this fall; I'd been betting on the GOP gaining 7 in the fall; keeping all their seats, plus gaining DE, ND, IN, NV, CO, AR and PA, not an outrageous assumption; there are a few races that could swing either way, like OH, IL, or, sadly, FL... #@$@@#$ Crist

Hispanics in CO made up 13% of the electorate in 2008. They went for Obama by 61-38%. So that result seems just about right. Not sure what you're crowing about. CO and AZ seem to have the least democratic hispanic populations in the southwest, which isn't all that impressive given that McCain got only 41% of them in his home state.

"Crowing"?

Moi?

NEVER!

So what happened to the "Hispanics running to the safety of the big warm welcoming bosom of the Dem party, that so many hoped was gonna happen?

As I always knew - US born Hispanics and legal residents DO NOT GIVE A @^&$ about illegals.

BOBO and Crew are gonna have to find another way to incite racial tensions for GOTV effort. This one has backfired. I think BOBO's approval is dipping now mainly because of this despicable tactic.

Yet the vast majority of Latino have ran "to the safety of the big warm welcoming bosom of the Dem party"

And that vast majority is growing faster than any other group. The "alienate brown people" strategy is really short sighted, as most mainstream Republican agree.

Reading your responses with random all caps really gives the impression that you're kind of a drama queen...

Well, thanks for taking the time to personally deliver that heads-up, Jovial James.

And all this time I thought CAPS ARE USED FOR EMPHASIS. So silly..

But "drama queen"?

You make it sound like it's a bad thing.

Guess some people are just never satisfied with just a single digestive tract exit. Tsk tsk.. That's just a shame..

What this poll does show is that they're not moving in the republican direction. And They've actually moved slightly in the democratic direction and gotten slightly bigger. Although everything within the MoE so it may mean nothing.

Other polls show there is a racial divide when it comes to the AZ law, so even if you're not hurting yourself, you're not helping either.

I'll note again, CO has the 2nd most conservative hispanic population. The from most supportive to least for republicans is AZ, CO, TX, NM, CA. AZ R's get 41%, in the 30's everywhere else. Look out when the whites start dying off replaced by hispanics.
