This is going to come down to Boulder & Denver.


Cpt. R: The R party machine is already drafting legislation to change the constitution so their low % wont force them to minor party status.This is not to say that Id love to see it - I would. But it will never happen.


Huh?! Actual *early voting figures* from just Friday show Republicans with about a 6% advantage in CO early voting. And your own poll shows both candidates holding their own partys vote. Something doesnt add up here...Statistics 101 - the subset of early voters is much smaller, much larger margin of error. Not sure why pollsters tout these smaller subset numbers, can only only be a source of potential embarrassment.


No. The pollster are not picking up on the size of the wave clearing. In Oregon as of friday republicans where up by 3% in ballots return.


One thing interesting to note within the results is that with respondents who say theyve already voted- accounting for 66% of the sample- Bennet is actually ahead by a 52-46 margin. Huh?!

Is there any inconsistency with CO early voting numbers that makes you skeptical of the sample.1. More Republicans have voted early than Dems in Colorado early voting.2. Buck is unifying 86% of his party.3. Indies are breaking 50-46 for Buck.But Bennet is winning 52-46 among early voters. Is that because the 14% of Republicans and 46% of Indies for Bennet are disproportionately the ones doing the early voting? It seems unlikely that they would be concentrated like that, much less enthusiastic enough to all vote early.

The big thing to watch in the Gov race is whether Maes can get at least 10%. If not, the state GOP goes to the bottom of the ballot through November 2014 as a minor party.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
