Reader: Rick Santorum is out-polling Barack Obama in Colorado? Really?

One of our regular features on the Latest Word is Denver Blogs, in which we highlight worthy new items from Colorado-centric sites. In that context, we shared a Colorado Pols link about a survey showing Rick Santorum polling ahead of Barack Obama in a group of states that includes Colorado. These results left one of our readers slack-jawed.

That doesn't make sense.

I know Santorum won the red primary, but those percentages don't make sense.

Colorado isn't Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, or Arizona. Extremes typically don't play well here. I can see Santorum being carried by the wild eyed zealots that vote in the red primaries, but not in the general against a moderate Democrat like the President.

Odd as it might seem, mittens would probably play better in Colorado than frothy, but neither would be good for more than 45 or 46 percent.

Santorum's crazy religious rants and his war on women don't do well here.

Too many indies, as well as motivated Dem's, and too few delusional reds, even with the latest eggmendment to lure them out.
