Now it begins to look like Gary Johnson is putting Colorado in play, says Public Policy Polling.
Granted, Mitt Romney's post-convention bounce seems to have taken him from a 49-43 Obama to 49-46 Obama--a GOP gain of three points.

We also tested an iteration of the race in Colorado including Libertarian Gary Johnson. He pulls 5% and takes slightly more from Obama than Romney, pushing Obama's lead down to 46-44 when he's in the picture.Ooops. Ah shit. So much for the conventional wisdom that Libertarians are just Republicans who smoke pot.
