Quinnipiac/NYT In Colorado: Obama 47%, Romney 46%

The Hill reports, another poll showing a tight race in Colorado to add to the pile–but in this case, the razor-thin margin still reflects good news for Democrats.

Obama leads Romney by 51 to 45 percent in Wisconsin, 50 to 46 percent in Virginia and 47 to 46 percent in Colorado, according to polls conducted by Quinnipiac University for CBS and The New York Times…

Most recent Colorado polls have shown the two candidates neck and neck in the state. The last time Quinnipiac polled there, in early August, it found Romney holding a 5-point lead.

The Quinnipiac poll released in early August showing Mitt Romney up by five over Barack Obama came in for some methodological criticism, and with the exception of a GOP-friendly Rasmussen poll showing Romney up by two, appears to have been an outlier. It’s possible that today’s poll has the same issues, but Democrats shouldn’t argue with the trajectory.

Quinnipiac’s trajectory is now in agreement with everybody else.

    the Post ran an article today forecasting that the Debates won’t matter much … only screw-ups seem to factor in …

    I thought you’d all like to enjoy a 2008-2012 compare and contrast.

    seems like too many folks form the coasts have moved into Colorado in  recent years.

    Democrats are so cocksure that Romney is toast. Every week you unleash a new contrived attack on Romney, and declare the race over. And yet Obama only leads by one point??

    Something isn’t right about this. Why isn’t this race over, Pols?

      Republicans are so cocksure that O’bama is toast, an unequivocal disaster.  Every week Romney re-introduces himself in a new contrived manner to declare he really cares, really likes trees, really isn’t a totally out of touch plutocrat, and that this race should be over. And, yet Romney continues to trail in the majority of major reputable polls, by a growing margain??

      Something isn’t right about this. Why isn’t this race over, Pols?

      Answer:  “Because the election isn’t being held until November, jackass.”

      • ArapaGOP says:

        If Obama was up more than one point you’d be singing a different tune.

        • Diogenesdemar says:

          this race was over months ago when the Republican party was unable to enlist a slate . . . slate, hell — even a single one . . . of sane and viable (I’m talking your party here — you know that these are not interchangeable terms) national candidates.

          That you can’t, and won’t, recognize the inevitable is not the fault of Pols, or any Democract . . .

          Still, jackass, the actual election isn’t until November.

          I know, its unpaid, but it could be a way to get your foot in the door in the business world.

          Let me know.

      When Rmoney and Lyin’ Ryan keep opening their mouths, all by them very selves, no Dem needed, to show the American people what incompetent they are, that is not the definition of contrived.

      Concepts like gaffe, don’t know what the fuck they are doing, and amateur hour come to mind.

      It’s not enough that you lose, we have to completely crush you?

      I suppose we should aim for that; after all if we let your party survive it will just keep fucking up America for the benefit of the asshole rich.

      Obama 2012: Let’s Whig out the Republicans!

    • Why won’t this race end?!?!

      I’m guessing that unless you’re immune to unbiased news you’re beginning to ask that question yourself.

      Colorado looks to be close this year (though why I cannot fathom), and so the race here isn’t “over”…

      But the Presidential race isn’t limited to Colorado; I’m sure you’ve heard that there are other states in this nation voting in a Presidential candidate… And since we use the Electoral College to elect our President, you might want to take a look at the various battleground polls that are coming out.  If you haven’t seen them, I’ll give you a hint, courtesy of Nate Silver: Obama is currently a 94% favorite to win re-election. This race is all but over nationally.
