I Think the Colorado Polls Are Trying to Tell Us Something.


It’s not too late for Republican Ken Buck to fumble this, but Colorado’s incumbent Democratic senator Michael Bennet has been remarkably consistent in his polling in October: 45, 45, 45, 45, 46.

There have been exceptions to the “incumbent rule” from time to time, but if Bennet remains at 45 percent in the final polls, I’ll have a hard time seeing him jumping to a majority on Election Day.

Also, in a year and political environment like this one , how many genuinely undecided but certain-to-vote voters are still out there?
