Lauren Boebert 14 Points Behind Democrat Opponent

( – Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-CO) time in office has been plagued with controversy. She is one of the most outspoken representatives and part of the far-right faction. However, recent polls indicate that she is falling behind her Democratic challenger, posing the question as to whether she has much of a political career left.

Boebert currently represents the 3rd Congressional District in Colorado, which she narrowly won in November 2022. She beat out her Democratic challenger, Adam Frisch, by only 500 votes. That led her to want to switch districts and replace outgoing Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), who stepped down earlier this year. According to Boebert, the decision was made because of a “pretty difficult year for [her] and [her] family,” but some speculate she simply wanted to move to a more conservative district for better odds of winning.

But those odds might not be in her favor after all. An internal poll by potential Democratic challenger Ike McCorkle shows Bobert losing by double digits. McCorkle is making his third run for the seat and wanted to commission a poll to see his chances against Boebert. The results had him leading 41% to 27%, but a stunning 33% of those surveyed were undecided.

Bobert first has to win the Republican primary, which takes place on June 25. She is facing five other challengers in that race, which is the one Buck vacated when he resigned in March. Buck stepped away from politics, citing the dysfunction in the House and increasing polarization among Republicans and Democrats. Among the reasons, he pointed to the impeachment proceedings against both President Joe Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

It’s clear that Boebert is facing an uphill battle to win the primary and secure reelection. Her family troubles have been splashed all over the media, and she has often been the subject of criticism after her behavior at a musical. With the primary happening later this month, we’ll know if Boebert is done sooner rather than later.
