Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper (D) and former congressman Scott McInnis (R) are tied in the Colorado race for governor with 44 percent each, according to a Public Policy Polling survey (PDF) released Thursday.
Hickenlooper remains much more popular than his rival, with 47 percent of respondents holding a favorable opinion of him and 33 percent viewing him unfavorably. In contrast, McInnis has a 31/30 favorability spread, with 39 percent not sure.
National PPP has unleashed a series of polls on swing-state Colorado this week in advance of the Democratic and Republican state delegate assemblies.
