Romney, Obama lead in latest Colorado poll

On February 5, 2008 we Coloradans will trundle off to our respective party caucuses and, inter alia, vote for who we think our party’s presidential nominee should be.

According to the latest Denver Post/Mason-Dixon poll, bazillionaire Willard Romney (43%) holds a massive nineteen-point lead over John McCain (24%) among likely Republican caucus attendees. Mike Huckabee sits in third place (17%), while the RON PAUL REVOLUTION!!!1!1!! (5%) enjoys a one-point lead over the monstrous Rudy 9iu11iani (4%) in the all-important race for fourth.

Things are much closer among the Democrats, with Barack Obama (34%) holding a scant two-point lead over Hillary Rodham Clinton (32%). My choice, John Edwards, lags far behind at seventeen percent. The margin of error is 3.5 percent.

It remains to be seen whether (1) Obama’s Colorado poll numbers will get a bump after his recent win in South Carolina, and (2) the Clinton Shit Machine will work Colorado in earnest or concentrate its efforts elsewhere.

    Doesn’t that mean that Edwards is fewer than six margins of error behind Obama according to this poll? But the margin of error is actually +/- 3.5%; i.e., it is actually a confidence interval of 7%.

    Seven! Heck, the confidence interval alone is greater than the number of margins of error by which Edwards trails Obama according to this poll data. For all this poll tells us, Edwards is already in the frickin lead!

    Lawyers. You guys just don’t get statistics.

    It’s true. It’s all true. Lawyers know diddly about numbers beyond how to divide by three.
