Here in my home state of Colorado, the Tom Tancredo Surge continues. Polls consistently show Tancredo’s independent gubernatorial candidacy within 1-5 points of vulnerable Democrat opponent John Hickenlooper, the mayor of Denver. The latest poll from Democratic pollster PPP shows Tancredo within 3 points. Hickenlooper is still drawing under 50 percent. It’s Hick at 47, Tancredo 44, and imploded GOP candidate Dan Maes at a negligible 5 percent. As I said at the beginning of this month, insurgent Tancredo is Colorado’s best hope for crossing the finish line first and pulling Colorado back from the progressive brink as Obama and his clones drag down America.
There’s a reason unenthused voters have, in Hickenlooper’s own words, responded to his campaign with “nonchalance.” He’s a phony “moderate” poseur whose strategy for hiding his radical progressive views is to suffer convenient bouts of amnesia, evade public disclosure, or hide behind Maes.
