    Polling earlier this month placed Boebert with a 35-point lead over five other candidates, though 40% of voters were undecided at the time, according to the Kaplan Strategies poll.

    What the fuck? Her new district sees a carpetbagging moron who has successfully passed zero bills, came within a cunt hair of losing a safe R seat to a Democrat because she’s an embarrassment to Colorado, then went on and became a national embarrassment after going to second base with her boyfriend at a Bettlejuice play, was basically run out of her own district, and collectively said “Yeah, we want more of that!”?

    We really are in the stupidest timeline. I will never forgive Trump for a lot of things, but especially for opening the door and allowing people like her and MTG to rise to power.

      It’s wild how one single guy pretty much opened the flood gates for brazen stupidity to be a brand instead of an embarrassment.

        To be fair, they were building up to it for a very long time. Like everything else, donnie just slaps his name on other people’s work.

        Assholes like Murdoch, Ailes, Limbaugh - and all his imitators on hate radio, the Koch Brothers, Alex Jones, Newt Gingrich, the Blessed Saint Ronnie Raygun himself (PBUH), etc…have been working to dismantle any semblance of sanity, reasonableness, and consensus reality for decade upon decade.

        The arrival of someone like donnie is just the latest and most visible symptom of this conservative rot.

      Polling earlier this month placed Boebert with a 35-point lead over five other candidates, though 40% of voters were undecided at the time

      And going deeper than that, the 35 point lead is only above the other R candidates, so I’m thinking this is a name recognition thing, but I’m not very familiar with the politics of rural Colorado.

      Also, of the 40% of undecideds, they asked them if they’d even consider voting for her and 60% of them said no.

      The latest from 538 has the D candidate ahead of her 41% to 27% for Bobbert.

      I recommend you check out the full poll results here. There are many more insights into CO Republicans. It’s all graphs, so it’s not dry reading, just the good stuff.

      45% say Trumps’s conviction makes them “Much more likely” to vote for him and 33% say it has made no change to their plans to vote.

      71% say hell no to taking Palestinian refugees into the US.

      41% say immigration has ruined their town.

      It’s 28 questions in all.

      Eastern CO is way more red and ass-backwards than the western slope. Dumbass prairie yokels not smart enough to vote smarter.

      I (unfortunately) live in this district, so heres my local insight/opinions. The incumbent for the district, Ken Buck, stepped down in March, so it’s all “new” challengers, 3 of which have been involved in state/local politics. The district has been Red since 2008. As another poster shared, 538 polling shows her losing to 2 of the three Dems running in the primary. Most of east rural Colorado is more '90s conservatives than tea party/MAGA conservatives, so they are likely to stay home and not vote for Boebert.

      Lines were redrawn after 2022 election which caused Boeberts current district to become more blue, and I think Adam Frisch has a good chance of winning, which means boebert has a shot at flipping two districts from red to blue. 538 doesn’t have any polling data for district 3 yet so this may just be a Lefty’s dream.

        What a glorious outcome this would be. After a short but pointless career, she’s essentially run out of politics and goes down in history as the first person to cost their party not just one but two seats on her way out.

        I would celebrate with a hearty chuckle.

      …Palin and Michele Bachmann enter the chat…

      Anyway, these people are just a cult at this point. They look at a complete dumbass like Bobo, giving handjobs in public, and think she’s “owning the libs”, when all she is to normal Americans is a complete fucking joke and total assclown.

        Palin was my exit from the party. I was too young and influenced to realize Bush was a goober, but after Palin opened her mouth years later, I made the Seinfeld theater exit and haven’t looked back. That was a slippery slope and they went straight Slip 'N Slide down it.

      … not what I was thinking. The level of stupid that comes out of her mouth whenever she speaks is a massive turn off for me.

      What I was thinking, However….

      Is that it is illegal to carry a fire arm while Intoxicated

      I suspect that, serving a person who is armed to the point of intoxication (which, seems stupidly easy to do, based on the above link,)… is a great reason for someone to yeet her liquor license.

      Edit: the new bar and grille has no connection and doesn’t seem to be firearms-permissive. Damn I’m too late.

        Let’s be realistic. Take her politics and personality out of it, and she’s a very attractive woman with a pretty damn impressive rack. I’d be willing to bet that 99% of guys would consider it a pretty damn good night if they woke up the next morning next to her and didn’t know who she was.

        Granted, she spoils it the minute she opens her mouth and reveals herself as a complete cuntrag. But she’s still at least a very attractive cuntrag.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    Lauren Boebert shot to fame with her gun-themed restaurant Shooters Grill, where waitresses served customers flouting loaded firearms in hip holsters – and tourists increasingly flocked as the MAGA Republican’s profile rose.

    “We’ve had people ask about it,” general manager Tiffany Engelsman tells The Independent just over a week before the June 25 primary – which will decide whether Boebert gets the GOP nomination for the seat in the 4th congressional district — although she notes it’s “definitely not” a common occurrence.

    While some of CD4 touches the edges of Denver’s commuter suburbs, most communities are small, close-knit and rural, home to farms producing crops like wheat, corn and oats as well as dairy and hog operations, and livestock ranches.

    Familiarity with Boebert and her voting record has increased since December as word trickled out, says constituent Michele Wingo, shopping at the Byers General Store just down the street from the town’s Shooters.

    She’d been hoping to stop at Boebert’s former restaurant Shooters on the way to drive her daughter to college in Grand Junction, on the other side of the state – but was sad to learn the business had closed.

    She doesn’t know this district, its constituents, or its strengths and challenges,” Republican State Sen. Byron Pelton and his wife wrote this month in a letter to the Sterling Journal-Advocate endorsing rival Jerry Sonnenberg in the primary.
