For John, BLUF: I guess this early guessing is important for winnowing the field. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Here is the Quinnipiac Poll on the views of voters in Colorado, looking forward to the Presidential Race in 2016. For Joe Biden fans, he is not in the discussed match ups, although he is up 2 points since November on if he would make a good President (to 26%). But then is Senator E Warren didn't even make the questionnaire. She, apparently couldn't get there on her own. Someone else has made it possible, but not for this poll.
The George Washington Bridge traffic scandal stalls New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie's 2016 presidential bid in Colorado, but other Republican contenders give former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a run for her money, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.Of course, Rep Paul Ryan is just down the road from Professor Althouse, who is in Madison. Mr Ryan is from Janesville.
Secretary Clinton gets 43 percent today, with Gov. Christie at 42 percent. This compares to a 46 - 38 percent Christie lead in a November 20 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.
Christie's plunge does not help Clinton who is struggling against other Republicans:
- U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky gets 47 percent to Clinton's 43 percent;
- Clinton is at 44 percent with 43 percent for U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas;
- U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin leads her 48 - 43 percent.
