New Reuters poll has Hickenlooper, Buck leading comfortably
Just over two weeks into the general election season, Republican Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck leads Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet by a 49-40 percent margin in the Colorado U.S. Senate race, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released today.
In the governor’s race, Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper (D) leads Republican Dan Maes by a 41-33 percent margin, with 16 percent of the vote going to former congressman and presidential candidate Tom Tancredo, running on the American Constitution Party line.
The poll also says that if Tancredo were not in the race, then Maes and Hickenlooper would be tied at 45 percent each. Tancredo has repeatedly called for Maes to leave the race because he considers him unelectable, while local Republicans have been furious at Tancredo for entering the race.
