Interesting that even Kos has McInnis tied with Hick. The Denver Post editorialized that McInnis has no shot at beating him. Well, this poll and the Ras which had him up by 4 show thats not the case.

There is no way Bennett is going to win. The far-left in Colorado hate him. They wont turn out in an off election year to vote for him.

I would prefer to have Norton as the candidate than Buck. Norton has a big mouth and doesn't seem to be able to connect that well. She seems a little like the Martha Coakley of the left. People don't know Bennett that well and with some campaign ads and health care reform passed, he could have a chance. Bush won CO in 2004 by 10 points but they rejected Coors because he was an elitist, and was a family values advocate yet his commercials encourage young men to pick up women at bars. (IF YOU BUY THE GIRL A BEER YOU CAN GET IN HER PANTS) Salazar had a field day, portraying the coors ads. That was a funny campaign to watch. I wish Salazar decided to simply run for his old seat. I had mixed feelings about Obama picking a US Senator from a relatively conservative state. It wasn't the greatest idea.

Yeah right. It looks likes Kos gave a charitable 4 to 5 point bump to Bennet and Hick. I can buy McInnis being tied with Hickenlooper--though I suspect the Republican probably leads by a few points--but there's no way that the painfully smug and unpopular Bennet leads the likeable, popular Norton. Even Bennet's OWN internals show him losing by at least a few points. Factor in Obama's plummeting numbers and the resurgent GOP in Colorado and you have yourself a red tidal wave next year.
