    but this has me concerned. This is a state PPP recently had us up by 4 in, and Nate has us with a 68% chance of winning...and yet it does not look good from the actual votes cast. This makes me worry about other states where PPP has us up by 4. Do the Obama oarganizers on the ground in CO have any analysis or rationale for why the Ds never made that late surge we were expecting? Anyone there with any soothing info for us?

    •  I'm worried (4+ / 0-)

      that the OFA ground game is not quite as strong as is often touted, or perhaps the Rs ground game is underrated.  It is hard squaring most polls in CO showing us a few pts. ahead with these numbers.

      •  exactly...nightmare scenario is panning out... (0+ / 0-)

        their silent majority turns out in droves and the OFA ground game is not what it seems.

        And Florida goes and Colorado goes and Virginia and we're all waiting around for a few precincts in Ohio to decide the whole goddamn thing.

        Because the passion and enthusiasm on our side simply isn't what it needed to be and no amount of "ground game" bravado can make it be.

        And these #'s and those in Florida are evidence.

        Suddenly looking at polls and saying "Who gives a fuck? We're LOSING in real votes in Colorado and have to win FLorida on Election Day after LOSING it to McCain by 5% in 08! Not going to happen, folks. Wake the fuck up"

          These numbers are close. They're worse than last time, but last time we won in a landslide.

          We've also done remarkably well in Florida in Early Voting considering they've cut it short.

          And you've totally ignored the real numbers on the ground in Iowa and Nevada which show us doing really well; especially the latter.

          What you're describing doesn't really resemble reality

      •  The 2010 Senate race was a nail biter (4+ / 0-)

        with Bennet. We pulled it off.

        I am optimistic that the lopsided Democratic votes in Denver and Boulder counties will carry the day.

        After all is said and done, a lot more is said than done.
