Liberal blogs Colorado Pols and Colorado Confidential are celebrating a poll that shows State Senator "Boulder Brandon" Shaffer (Liberal - Boulder County) leading Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, (Great American - Fort Morgan) in Colorado's 4th Congressional District.
You can read the polling memo here.
There are a number of problems with this poll.
First of all, they're not releasing the poll's cross-tabs and methodology. For all we know they polled the people in Shaffer's living room.
Secondly, as silly as it sounds, I am sure there is a misunderstanding among the average Joe and Jane Six-Pack between Brandon and Bob Shaffer/Schaffer.
Lastly, it's May of 2007. No one really cares about the next election right now, and our same Joe and Jane Six-Pack on the eastern plains don't know just how liberal Boulder Brandon's voting record really is...
