- The Quinnipiac poll showed guns in second place from a much lower position in an earlier poll, no doubt due to the Governor’s failed apology to County Sheriffs and the kerfuffle it raised.
- Hickenlooper never fully recovered from the runaway 2013 legislative session, which he became fully identified with bill signings and his failure to use the veto.
- His futile effort to reach a compromise on fracking to avoid a public fight highlights a divided party.
Given these poll results and Senator Udall’s gyrations to avoid the president don’t expect another visit before November 4.
