Who Will Win the U.S. Senate Race?

It’s time to poll again as we try to gauge the changing (or not) perceptions in the Senate race. Here’s last week’s results for comparison.

Remember, we want to know what you believe will happen, not what you might want to happen. To repeat our usual description, if you had to bet everything you owned on the outcome of this race, who would you pick?

    Just barely. It may come down to a recount. But Buck’s problems are going to cost him.

    I’ve spoken with several Republicans who are voting for Bennet, similar to what happened in the Obama election.

    It’ll be close, but enough independent voters are angry at Washington. But they’re not as angry with our state politicians nearly as much as with our Federal pols.

    The Democratic brand is damaged, but there are enough people who simply don’t want to vote a straight Republican ticket, that Bennet and Markey (and, if Buck wins by a much larger margin than my prediction, probably Ed Perlmutter and John Salazar as well) will likely be the main casualties.

    Look for the Democrats to maintain their supermajority in Denver, thanks in large part to the Republicans exercising most of their efforts on Bennet/Markey and not spreading around the love. That, and a little Tancredo-Maes perfect storm magic.

    latest round of third-party attack ads drawing blood, especially the gun dealer ad.  And the Democratic base is finally getting aroused.

      A) The gun case helped Buck in the primary, and probably will in the general as well. It highlights the underhanded political tactics of people like Strickland, which is very much comparable to the people who made the ad. There’s hardly a shred of truth in it.

      B) The Democratic base may be getting aroused, but it’s more likely due to what they’re watching in their parents’ basements.

        Keep up with the “Strickland” line, please. And maybe bring up that “nobody” Rachel Maddow too. That’s a winning line of argument! (Note to beej – that last sentence is sarcastic.)

    But I won’t be surprised to see the margin of his lead from last week’s poll lesson. Buck’s had a rough few days, and Bennet’s done alright in staying even. I’ll be curious to see what Buck has up his sleeve for these next few weeks. Currently it’s a bunch of the same – Bennet voted for these things that the most vocal of the electorate doesn’t like – and complaining about Bennet’s ads. If Buck comes strong with a consistent message (which isn’t necessarily his forte) and hits Bennet in some key demographics, he will win. Still a toss up, but I think it’s Buck’s race to lose.

      Buck will win. I considered Coloradopols line for what it was. A propaganda arm for the Democratic Party. I have saved their comments regarding their anticipated reliability.  I relish the thought of rubbing their progressive noses in it.

    In a craaazy 3 way deal that sends Jane Norton to the Governor’s seat, Mesa State gets Penry and a player oto be named later, and the CO D’s get a 4th round draft pick in 2013.

  7. SSG_Dan says:

    …and if he keeps coming out swinging in the debates, and makes some public appearances where he shows some of the same passion, he’ll win.

    Not by much, I’ll concede. But people are starting to get what a lying, flip-flopping con man Buck really is.
