Congressional Quarterly says Michael Bennet “needs to get better known” — who? Oh yeah! Colorado’s junior junior U.S. Senator. The Democrats’ Public Policy Polling – in a herculean effort to put an impossibly meaningful spin on an election that’s more than 21 months away – finds almost half of Coloradans will admit they don’t even know who Bennet is.
(How many of the 54 percent were fibbing, or thought maybe pollsters were asking about this AFC West rival running back?)
We’re a long way from knowing much of anything about the dynamics for the 2010 U.S. Senate race in Colorado. But we’ll at least begin to have a good idea of the terrain when we see how Bennet casts his vote on union card-check legislation.
We’ll see. Political junkies of Colorado, pay close attention.
