Same as the 4 point lead from Ras a few weeks ago. Bennet and the DSCC has been flooding the airwaves with 'Buck is too extreme for Colorado' ads saying he wants to take away birth control and other idiotic lies. Meanwhile, Buck has at least partially devoted his television ads to positive stories about himself and his vision.

I know that one of the conservatives on this web site is from Colorado, so I'm sure they will disagree with me, but I have seen other Fox Polls and other polls in general that do not have Obama at 38 percent. I don't believe it could be that low in Colorado, since even Rasmussen has been in the high 40's nationally. I would guess it would be about 44. Based on this poll, I still think Bennet has a chance.

If 38 percent of those polled by Fox disapprove of Obama than Bennet still has a chance.

I think Buck's extreme stands could be true. I don't know what his background is religiously, but like Sharron Angle, I think he is getting a lot of support from James Dobson and the Family research council.

I don't know Colorado that well, but I have a feeling it is sort of like the Ohio of the West. It has it's extremely conservative sections, but also has progressive districts too.

It looks like the Colorado Senate race is more or less set. Bennet has been hammering Buck for weeks with tough ads and Buck hasn't dropped at all. More than likely Bennet is set at 44 or 45 percent, meaning that Buck will come close to a double-digit win.

I wonder if the governor's numbers are accurate here. Given the number of people who will simply mark (R) on their ballot no matter the candidate, it's hard to believe that Tancredo will come this close on election day, but his campaign insists that if they can push Maes down to near 10% they'll win this thing.

It seems that Colorado has basically reverted to a 2002 political environment, when Republicans utterly dominated state politics. The state has always leaned to the right and the conservatives in the state are more conservative than most other states, so a conservative electoral revival would mean more here than elsewhere for conservative candidates.

Fopx(Rasmussen), no demographics. This race is a toss up and could go either way at this point(2 points either way). Will depend on gotv/

Tancredo is not going to win. He is a biggot. I think the Latino vote will come through for both Bennet and Hicklenooper in the end.

@ FM

I think I heard somewhere that the Republicans will have minor Party status of Maes can't get a certain percent of the vote. Do you knwo if that's true?

Stop trying to predict this race. Field Marshall The Magnificent has declared it over so therefore it's over! We can all concentrate on football now.

I would fall out laughing if Tancredo pulled this off.

49% voting for Tancredo or Maes. Likewise, the recent CNN/Time poll showed 50% voting Tancredo/Maes. I could see Tancredo getting to 45% easy, as Maes fades. The last few % would be the toughest.

I didn't declare it over in my post but will in this one. Early voting begins here in 2 weeks and registration for voting ends next week. Its done.

It will be a true miracle if Tancredo pulls off a win against Hickenlooper. And Buck's seeming success should, I hope, put a final stake in the establishment GOP in Colorado (Pete Coors, Dick Wadams and of course Scott McGinnis). A lot of big GOP names have abandoned Dan Maes (Bob Beuprez, Hank Brown, etc.). Tancredo might actually pull it off if Dan maes suspended his campaign a couple weeks before the election and endorsed Tancredo. But I don't think that will happen.

If you are not aware of what sunk Scott McGinnis' campaign, here is a little rhyme performed last week by the Denver Law Club (c) 2010.

The Report That Scott Wrote
(Rhythm: The House That Jack Built)


This is the family, named Hasan
That offered to pay three hundred grand
For musings on water and really planned
To read the report that Scott wrote.

This is the researcher, hired by Scott,
One Rolly Fischer, not paid a lot.
In finding material for the book,
It seems another’s work was took.
For the family, named Hasan
That offered to pay three hundred grand
For musings on water they said they planned
To read the report that Scott wrote.

And this is the contract, where Scott agreed
That all of the work was his own, indeed
The lies, it seems had just begun
A problem under 4.1.
He blamed the researcher, hired by Scott,
One Rolly Fischer, not paid a lot,
To find material for the book,
“‘Twas Rolly whom the shortcut took!”
But Rolly said “Scott had the plan”
To cheat the family, named Hasan
That offered to pay three hundred grand
To read the report that Scott wrote.

This is the pen Scott would have used
To veto the laws that he refused
Had he made a successful run
Not skated by Rule 4.1
By lying about the plagiarized work
Whether taken by him or by his clerk.
For the family, named Hasan
That now wants back three hundred grand
For musings on water that got out of hand
For the report that –um – Hobbs wrote.
