It's on the main page.

You'll have to scroll down a bit, and look on the right side of the page. For me, it shows up under a row of social media and app icons, and there's a picture of Salazar (bald) near it.

Par for the course with the Denver Post.

You know what would make me happy?

Waking up tomorrow morning to find that the poll numbers are 50-50.

Pushing the numbers in our favor would make me positively giddy.

(Hey, Colorado's getting screwed by the likes of Bloomberg and Biden, I'll take bits of joy where I can find 'em.)

What? How is this not a big deal??? Todd Akins comments weren't NEARLY as bad as this. Absurd...

Exactly. The media creates the polls with an agenda.

Just took the poll. Results after my vote:

Y - 778
N - 1279
Plus about fifty undecided.

I always felt like CO, in all its' nature-related-splendor, should be inhabited by people who are as hardcore conservative as anywhere else in the US. It iust feels wrong that CO is closer to being another CA or NY than another AK.

Hope things are better for you guys in the future.

Theres still a lot of us Conservative, gun toten folks here but I suspect most of the people that still bother to read the Post are liberal urbanites and the rest of us wouldnt ever see the poll if not for the "Heads up" from you guys. The DP is predictable, if a Conservative would have said that, we would loose six seats in the next election, but a Dem, no problem, just a little "inartful" slip of the toung. And besides, your a racist if you call him out on it. Welcome to California Lite. :banghead:

I just voted. About 60 votes would put us ahead. If we move there is a chance to beat them. I would think that women would be outraged!

The funny part with the California refugee phenomena is that people flee the mess that is CA and then where ever they colonize they vote in the same problems they fled. (Note this obviously does not apply to every current or former California resident, just a trend.) We get some of that up here in AK as well, but thankfully so far the density of California stereotype crowd is small enough that we absorb them rather than them recreating their dysfunction up here.

I woke up this morning to check this thread and then the DP website.

You guys rule!

Now, let's crush this thing and really show them.

I would derive no small measure of joy from emailing the poll results to joseph.salazar.house@state.co.us

FWIW, they are apparently tracking who is voting with a cookie. If you use session cookies or delete the DPs cookies after voting, you can vote as often as you like.

I voted, and we were sitting about 58% in our favor at the time.

This poll is horribly biased. Though it is worded a bit more carefully, they're obviously trying to push the following agenda:

VOTE YES: (if you're a gun-toting nutjob who's bitter because you are having your rights stripped away by this caring and compassionate representative)

VOTE NO: (If you're a compassionate Democrat who understands that our dear Representative Salazar merely had a slip of the tongue for which we could never hold him accountable, despite the fact that we'd seek to impeach any Republican who ever said such a thing).


Typical Denver Post nonsense. Hence why I no longer get their paper.

I hit it again about 30 minutes ago. Reset my browser and found they had changed the poll. We were down by 1%.

The problem with polls that are cookie sensitive is just one person with the right skills can swing the numbers pretty big in short order. A friend had his truck in the running for a $10,000 makeover, the "poll" was cookie sensitive, it became obvious one of the other nominees was really hitting the poll, so we really jammed the poll and he wound up winning, but it was ridiculous watching the vote counts (for both trucks) swing so wildly. His truck came out really nice though. :evil:

They didn't say anything about non-Americans being unable to vote.
