Poll: GOP Lead Shrinks Dramatically in Colorado Senate Race’s Final Days


Republican candidate Cory Gardner’s lead over Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) has shrunk significantly in the final days of the Colorado Senate campaign, a new poll found.

The Quinnipiac University poll released Monday put Gardner up by 2 points, 45 percent to 43 percent. That is down from the 7-point Garnder lead, 46 percent to 39 percent, that the pollster found last week.

Early voting has been underway for weeks and Colorado is undertaking its first all mail-in ballot election. Most polling has found Gardner with a slight edge, and another new poll on Sunday from Democratic firm Public Policy Polling gave him a 3-point lead, 46 percent to 43 percent, over Udall.

The Quinnipiac poll, conducted Oct. 28 to Nov. 2, surveyed 815 likely voters. Its margin of error is 3.4 points.

According to TPM’s PollTracker average, Gardner is currently leading 45.8 percent to 44 percent heading into Election Day.
