Colorado Governor’s Race: Democrat 43%, Tancredo 35%

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:49 pm



Does a member of the American Constitution Party (.pdf) have a chance of being a governor?

Probably not. But it sure is interesting.

  1. He might if the 16% who support the Republican candidate (Maes) opt to pull the lever for Tancredo instead.

  2. Depends upon what Dem voter turnout will be like. It doesn’t help Hickenlooper that the GOP has very good candidates at the US Senate, US House, and other levels. And it really doesn’t help him that nearly every GOP luminary that isn’t running for office this year (and even some that are) is endorsing Tancredo.

    BTW, I live in metro Denver, and I can tell you the Tancredo signs are up in earnest. Moreso than Hickenlooper’s.

  3. Well, lets hope so. Hickenlooper is a mediocrity and Colorado has already been driven into insolvency by the last couple of mediocrities.

    That said, I have difficulty getting excited about Tancredo myself. I don’t see him as having any executive abilities at all.

    I’d be amazed, if that’s accurate. Pretty much the whole swath of land from 72nd down to Belleview and Federal on east to Chambers is pretty solid Democrat territory.

    If Tancredo has any real shot at winning, Maes would have to drop out or his voters cross over, and he needs a good turnout of voters in the Springs, the 3rd, and the 2nd district to overtake Denver and Boulder County.

  5. The Californization of Colorado is just about complete, isn’t it?

    Next stop, state budget deficits of $19 billion!

  8. What little I know of Tancredo is a pretty ugly and IMHO the Tea Party Choice is pretty bad but hey his selection sends the message to RINOs. Hopefully, next time a better choice is found.

  9. Robert Rodriguez – Not my fault that you’re acting like a butt hurt teenager. Weren’t you the one who wrote if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen?

    Yes, I believe those were your words.

    Nothing spells good faith like a commenter who frequently changes a screen name. We know where you stand.
