Poll: Buck, Norton still edging Bennet, Romanoff in Senate race

In the Colorado race for U.S. Senate, Republicans Ken Buck and Jane Norton hold narrow leads over Democrats Michael Bennet, the incumbent, and Andrew Romanoff, according to a poll released Tuesday by Rasmussen Reports.

Buck leads both Romanoff and Bennet by margins of 47-42 percent and 48-39 percent, respectively. Former Lt. Gov. Jane Norton holds a 47-40 percent lead over Sen. Bennet, but is in a virtual tie with former Colorado House Speaker Andrew Romanoff, leading by a margin of 44-42 percent. (The margin of error in the poll was +/- 4.5 percent.)

The poll is essentially consistent with a Rasmussen poll conducted last month.

The Colorado primary is on Aug. 10.
