Chairs are scarce at Polis events.

After months of gathering only a few dozen folks everywhere he went, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis is finally drawing a crowd in cities other than Boulder.

There’s got to be at least 70 people at that event in Lakewood, where Polis has indeed drawn a standing-room only crowd.

But if you look closely at the picture, there doesn’t appear to be more than a dozen chairs in the room.

Limiting seating to brag on standing-room only appears to be a growing theme in the Polis campaign.

We can see how this would exceed his expectations. Polis may have high name recognition, but that doesn’t always translate into actual support in his campaign for the governor’s mansion.
