This week on the Get More Smarter Podcast, The Rocky Mountaineer is back! We dig into the latest poll from Global Strategy Group and ProgressNow Colorado to see how much Democrats in the legislature overreached this session, and how much the voters really really liked it. The failed attempt by right-wing goons to overturn the results of the 2020 election in a violent insurrection turns six-months old this week and we discuss the Russian dolls of alternative reality Republicans have put themselves in since then. We have some preliminary redistricting and reapportionment maps, and we discuss why where the lines are right now almost certainly will not matter to the seats actually being campaigned in in 2022. And we read you the internet like we’re your parents and talk about some horrible things Lauren Boebert said! But first, we interview Andrew Baumann, an at-best-mediocre poker player and the senior vice president at Global Strategy Group, and more importantly the lead pollster on this issue of the Rocky Mountaineer.
