Democratic incumbent Mark Udall and Republican challenger Cory Gardner are locked in a statistical dead heat in the Colorado race for U.S. Senate, according to the latest Suffolk University/USA TODAY poll.
The poll of likely voters in the general election shows Gardner backed by 43 percent and Udall by 42 percent, a difference that is well within the polls 4.4 percent margin of error. Another 10 percent of likely voters remain undecided, and four independent and third-party candidates were in low single digits.
The Colorado race for governor also is neck-and-neck, with 43 percent of respondents supporting Democratic incumbent John Hickenlooper and 41 percent backing Republican Bob Beauprez, a former congressman, with 10 percent of likely voters undecided. This race also had four additional candidates in single digits.

An encouraging poll, as the last few polls I’ve seen have had Udall up over Gardner.
Hopefully their “Newly minted Blue State” will be red here in November...
Not enough to overcome the margin of fraud.
Agreed. Also, the news media is doing a fine job of keeping everyone ILL-informed by helping to cover-up the numerous scandals.
I’m amazed that Udall has hung in there this long with the lead. I mean, CO leans a little blue. But during a mid term it should be fertile field for the Gardner.
The Boulder crowd is not going to be voting. Too stoned and Odumbo is not on the ballot.
Hope Gardner can pull it off.
too polls, Ras and other came out today in Winconsin governor as Walker up 2 and 3 points each.
Doesn't matter. Margin of error has become Margin of we have no idea how polls are working these days. Polls are even more useless than they ever were except as a marketing tool for media organizations. Ignore them. The modeling analysis done by Nate Silver is probably as good as you are going to find, but the deciding factor is going to be turnout. Turnout will outweigh margin of error, voter fraud and all of the other variables. Who can get their voters to the polls will win.
incumbent under 50% and actually behind, this guy is done...
starting to look like a big sweep...
Quinnipiac poll shocker: John Hickenlooper down 10
If the Dem governor is down by 10% in CO, that should also help with race. right?
FoxNews’ poll tonight shows Bill Cassidy blowing open a 51-38 lead over Mary Landrieu on LA!!
Awesome news. Residence-gate may be biting Landrieu hard. Plus I’m seeing more visible signs of Cassidy’s campaigning.
If Maness would leave the race next week, Cassidy might could win outright. That’s what I would urge Maness to do. All the other more conservative primary challengers for the Senate (Stockman et al) have already gone down to defeat, and Maness is certain to do so as well.
Few polls have had Cory up, but the RCP poll average gives Udall a scant 2.8% lead.
And Larry Sabato--who is yet another serious political analyst--is now predicting a net Republican gain of "five to eight Senate seats" in November, with "[t]he likeliest outcome" being "six or seven seats"; either of which would give the GOP control of the upper chamber.
If the prediction of a "wave" election is correct, it is certainly possible that Republicans could take most (if not all) of the really tight races; including the one in Colorado.
Exactly. Maness has no chance of winning, and his remaining on the ticket only gives Landrieu a second bite at the apple. That open primary system in Louisiana benefits the incumbent.
Especially considering Udall refuses to debate Gardner on live TV.
The F/L will headline a $10,000 a plate Democrat fund-raiser being held at a health food store.
