Ritter Pulling Away in New Poll
The newest poll on the Colorado governor’s race is out Rasmussen Reports, and Democrat Bill Ritter is widing his lead over Republican Bob Beauprez. In a head-to-head matchup, Ritter now leads Beauprez 48-39 percent, which is a four-point jump from the last Rasmussen poll. And that isn’t the only good news for Ritter:
Ritter continues to be better liked than his opponent, with 58% viewing the Democrat favorably, and 48% viewing Beauprez favorably.
Ritter has opened up a nine-point lead over Beauprez, a four-point jump from last month. As Square State notes, the newest Rasmussen poll represents the first time Ritter’s lead has been beyond the margin of error of +/- 4.5%. Colorado Pols has been keeping track of all of the publicly-available polls in the governor’s race up to this point. Take a look to see how things have changed in the past year.
