Saturday Night Odds and Ends

As a scientific pollster it is perhaps a little unorthodox for me to encourage people to go stack an unscientific poll, but go here and vote UNC pitcher Adam Warren for the Lowe's Senior Class Award. I go to almost every Carolina baseball game and Adam has been both a tremendous pitcher and an outstanding student and representative of the program over the last four years. Tyler Hansbrough won this award for basketball and we have someone who deserves to win it for baseball too. You can vote once a day.

Speaking of the stacking of unscientific polls, Colorado was the surprise winner for the 'where should we poll this weekend?' question this week. Illinois and Connecticut both seemed like they had more compelling stuff for us to look at but someone sent around an e-mail telling folks to vote for Colorado so that put it over the top. We'll have approval ratings for Barack Obama and Mark Udall, as well as the same for Michael Bennet and Bill Ritter and looks at how they do against some hypothetical opponents.

I think we'll have a new 'where should we poll' on Monday, perhaps with an Oklahoma option as Tom Coburn wavers over his political future.

We'll also have our monthly national poll this week, looking at Barack Obama's approval rating and some other stuff you'll just have to stay tuned to see.

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Couldn't you do something against those bots? Try a new captcha or somethings, but they're really annoying.
