It's interesting to see how many Republicans in deep red districts (this is is a 63% Bush district) are below the 50 percent mark. It's as if they know they're not happy with their own guys, but they're not sure they want to pull the trigger for a Democrat.

In coming years, one of our challenges as a party will be to make that a less painful proposition, and Mountain Dems are well on the way to making that happen.
