After Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) clinched the Republican nomination for Congress in the state’s right-leaning third district, it seemed like she was a shoo-in for the general election. But recent polling suggests that Boebert’s re-election isn’t as sure as it appears.

A new poll by Keating Research has shown Boebert to have the support of 47 percent of likely voters, to her Democratic opponent’s 45 percent, Axios reports. There’s a catch: The poll was commissioned by Boebert’s challenger, Adam Frisch. Keating Research, a Democratic firm, has a B/C rating from FiveThirtyEight, which places Boebert’s odds of winning at 98 percent.

All polling should be taken with a grain of salt. Polling from Boebert’s opponent? Add some extra sodium.

Still, the Colorado congressional race is worth keeping an eye on. During her reelection campaign, Boebert has repeatedly touted legislation that she voted against, denied that her husband exposed himself to a minor (he pled guilty), and complained that she was “tired of this separation of church and state junk.”

She has also come under investigation in Colorado for her alleged misuse of campaign funds. Voters might be ready for a low-key, anti-“angertainment” Democrat after all.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
