Posted on 10/21/2014 4:36:42 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued
PPP's newest Colorado poll finds very close races for both Governor and the Senate. Cory Gardner is up 46/43 on Mark Udall in the Senate race, while John Hickenlooper has a 45/44 advantage over Bob Beauprez in the Governor's race.
Both Democrats are doing well with the groups Democrats tend to do well with in Colorado. Hickenlooper is up 49/39 with women, 60/28 with Hispanics, and 59/31 with young voters. Udall is similarly ahead 46/42 with women, 64/24 with Hispanics, and 59/22 with young voters. The problem for the Democrats is that they are down by significant margins with men- Hickenlooper trails by 10 points, Udall by 11 points- with white voters- Hickenlooper trails by 5 points, Udall by 12 points, and with seniors- Hickenlooper trails by 9 points, Udall by 13 points. The struggles with those groups are largely offsetting their strength with their traditional constituencies.
Udall continues to struggle with his approval numbers, as only 37% of voters think he's doing a good job to 52% who disapprove. Hickenlooper's approval is under water as well, with 43% of voters approving of him and 49% disapproving. Both Republican candidates have narrowly positive favorability ratings- Gardner comes in at 45/42 and Beauprez at 41/39.
For Hickenlooper and Udall's struggles, they may actually be outperforming the overall political climate in the state. Republicans lead by 8 points on the generic legislative ballot, 48/40, a measure that really shows the difficulties Democrats overall are having in Colorado this year.

Even a liberal partisan polling firm shows Gardner pulling slightly ahead. I’m feeling good about this race and Gardner has more room for growth in support than Udall does. His “brain dead” remark won’t help things, I’m sure.
Ain’t buyin’ it. Cory is pulling away from Senator Uterus.
In whatever country replaces the United States, I hope the citizens will have the good sense to deny the vote to women and children.
I haven’t one Democratic candidate here tout Obama in their TV ads.
What a difference two years makes.
Colorado has a new voter fraud law. Under this Democrat answer to voter fraud, any person may appear at a designated location, register to vote by declaring that they are who they say they are and that they are eligible to vote in Colorado, no ID required and they cannot be challenged. Their vote must be counted even if they are later found to be as phony as a three dollar bill.
Colorado now votes entirely by mail and the Democrats will know before election day how many votes they need. Good time to be in the bus charter business. Unions and community organizers from cities throughout the midwest can fill up the buses and head for Denver.
PPP is a democrat leaning poll. However, this concerns me as this is the first poll in a while that had Hickenlooper ahead.
Moochelle is coming to Fort Collins this week, to plug up traffic and piss off the voters. Goodie...
Does not say much about the intelligence of the average Colorado democrap voter that they would vote for Senator Uterus and Govenpooper Chickenpooper.
Did anyone see “The Five” on FOX the other day (Mon.) Udall could not name 3 favorite books he’s read. The guy is a dolt. What is wrong with the people in CO? It’s that 47% Mitt Romney told us about who will always vote DemocRAT.
