Greatest Quarterback In The History Of The World Endorses Romney
OK, we have a month left before Electionpalooza 2012. So for the last few weeks, we're going to take a look at the daily polling action in the presidential and senate races.
And, heck, for fun let's start even lower:
Mia Love, who would be the first black female Republican in Congress, is leading Democratic Utah Rep. Jim Matheson in a poll released late Monday.
Love leads Matheson 49 percent to 43 percent, according to a Deseret News/KSL poll. Eight percent are undecided.
This is truly amazing. Everyone I talked to in Utah months ago, including people who really liked Mia Love, said she couldn't win this thing. Matheson is extremely popular. Even the conservative people I know there said they were voting for him. Clearly Love has persuaded many with her savvy race.
We may need to update this as polls are released throughout the day:
Quinnipiac Obama 49, Romney 45 Obama +4
Rasmussen Tracking Obama 48, Romney 47 Obama +1
Nevada: WeAskAmerica Obama 53, Romney 42 Obama +11
Missouri: WeAskAmerica Romney 48, Obama 45 Romney +3
New Mexico: Rasmussen Reports Obama 51, Romney 40 Obama +11
Nevada Senate - Heller vs. Berkley WeAskAmerica Heller 45, Berkley 45 Tie
Missouri Senate - Akin vs. McCaskill WeAskAmerica McCaskill 46, Akin 45 McCaskill +1
But New Mexico's neighbor Colorado is definitely in play. My folks went to the 6,000-person rally last night described here by the Durango Herald (that's my mom in glasses with her Ricochet-member sister at the rally):
After going nearly six weeks without visiting Colorado, Romney’s campaign has heaped attention on the state the last two weeks.
Monday’s night’s rally ranked among the biggest and most enthusiastic of his campaign in Colorado.
An overflow crowd packed into a hangar at Wings Over the Rockies museum, and American military planes flanked the stage.
[Former Denver Broncos quarterback John] Elway and former Gov. Bill Owens – perhaps Colorado’s two best-known Republicans – introduced Romney.
The rally kicked off an intense week on the campaign in Colorado.
My mom reports that Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton (on the DL) also endorsed.
