Mark Udall: Definitely "Progressive," Not Exactly "Hugely Popular"

Oh, that all our Lefty friends were as ill-informed and overconfident about Colorado's upcoming U.S. Senate race as the Kentucky pacifist blogger who has written:
In Colorado, Rep. Mark Udall (D), a hugely popular progressive, is out-polling possible Republican challengers handily.

For a better informed opinion, please search through the well-sourced links on this site, including analyses of relevant polls here and here and here. Memo to the Bluegrass State: The name of the Republican candidate in this race is former Congressman Bob Schaffer.

Nevertheless, a liberal blogger has tagged Udall as a "progressive," which means it's time once again to update the "Mark Udall is not a moderate" scoreboard. The term "progressive" previously has been determined to fall under "reliably left wing" within the context of the scoreboard, which is updated below as follows:

The Mark Udall is not a moderate scoreboard:
extremist 2
reliably left wing 5
liberal 21
moderate 0
conservative (chuckle)

We started this scoreboard when we noticed that liberal blogs and the msm were routinely calling Mark Udall a "liberal," "reliably left wing," and even "extremist." We do not count comments from conservative blogs and we didn't count a comment on a liberal show by a conservative politician. Those who would like to check our methodology can follow the bread crumbs backwards.
