The Poll

Someone at the Colorado Green Party managed to snag the cover letter to the elusive Bob Schaffer poll. Those who want to look at the numbers can go to this pdf document. In big picture terms:

The contest is tight-within the margin of error if there is a Green candidate and just outside it if there is not.
The results follow traditional political lines.
The voters would prefer a generic Democrat, but would also prefer a conservative over a liberal.
Hillary will be a drag, big time.
Schaffer is stronger in his Fort Collins base than Udall is in Boulder.
Three out of five think Udall is a liberal.

That is a set of conclusions that shouldn't give the Mark Udall camp a lot of comfort.
