By Seth Masket

Some interesting findings from the new post-debate poll of Colorado voters conducted by the University of Denver with Selzer and Associates:

  • 58% of Democrats say the economy has improved over the past year, while 14% say it’s gotten worse. A mere three percent of Republicans say the economy has improved, while 86% say it’s gotten worse over the past year. 

  • 62% of Republicans say their personal economic situation has gotten worse over the past year, while only 7% say it’s improved. 40% of Democrats say their personal economic situation has improved and 12% say it’s gotten worse.

    Have we gotten to the point that conservatives are just liars?

    It's not statistically possible for 60% of one party in even a single state to be 'doing worse' than a year ago.

    One can find some interesting points in time in this write-up but I don't know if I see all of them center to heart. There is certainly some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Great write-up , thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as well
