Denver Post Poll: Obama, Romney Tied In Colorado

Mitt Romney holds a 1-point lead over President Barack Obama in Colorado, according to a poll released Friday.

The poll, conducted by SurveyUSA on behalf of the Denver Post, shows Romney edging Obama among likely voters in the state, 48 percent to 47 percent.  While Romney’s slight advantage is a reversal from the 1-point lead Obama held in the Denver Post’s early-September poll, it’s still well within the margin-of-error in Friday’s poll and essentially amounts to a tie.  

Despite Romney’s gains — both in the latest Denver Post poll and other surveys this week — 83 percent of Colorado voters said the first presidential debate did not change their mind.

The PollTracker Average currently shows Romney with a slim lead in Colorado, which is in the toss-up column on the TPM Electoral Scoreboard.
