PPP on the Colorado Primaries
John Hickenlooper, Democrat for Governor, is safe, but he’s the only one.
The Republican race for Governor is of course a mess since Scott McInnis imploded. McInnis, once a clear favorite, now only leads Dan Maes in the poll 41-40 (MoE 3.5), for a good old 55-45 near-coinflip situation.
For Senate, the Republicans are also close, per PPP, with Ken Buck behind Jane Norton 45-43, a reversal of earlier polling I’ve covered. But still, that narrow margin makes it 61-39 and leaves plenty of room for either candidate to win.
Democrats still have a competitive Senate race, and PPP’s outcome is also a reversal of earlier polling seen in this space, as Michael Bennet retakes a lead, 49-43, over Andrew Romanoff (MoE 4.6), for a clearer 74% chance Bennet leads.
This is a rare situtation. SurveyUSA had all three races going the other way. Should make the results interesting to watch tonight.
