You Wonder if Ken Salazar Would Have Been Named if Obama Had Seen This Coming

The short version of Rasmussen’s latest poll in the Colorado Senate race is that the Republican is leading. Doesn’t matter which Republican wins the primary, doesn’t matter if the Democrat is incumbent senator Michael Bennet or former state house speaker Andrew Romanoff.

Of the Republicans, former lieutenant governor Jane Norton runs strongest, beating Bennet by 9 and Romanoff by 11 percentage points.

The others:

Ken Buck, a country district attorney, earns 42 percent of the vote to Bennet’s 38 percent. Against Romanoff, Buck leads 41 percent to 39 percent. Former State Senator Tom Wiens runs almost even with both Democrats. In a match-up with Bennett, he’s up a point 42 percent to 41 percent. He’s also up a point against Romanoff 41 percent to 40 percent.

Some may find these results ironic, considering that Colorado’s unemployment rate is better than most of the rest at the country’s, at the comparatively not-so-bad 6.9 percent.
