Poll: Buck leads Bennet in Colo. Senate race 48 to 40 percent

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll on the Colorado Senate race was released today showing Republican candidate Ken Buck leading the Democratic incumbent Michael Bennet, 48 to 40 percent. “This is great news for my grassroots campaign,” said Buck in a statement.  “Coloradans are ready for a senator who rein in Washington’s out of control spending.”

The same poll also noted that, while Tea Party support was helping Buck, the “uncompromising mood of many conservative voters” might hurt the GOP gubernatorial candidate in the Centennial State’s three-way race:

Former Republican Tom Tancredo appears to be playing a spoiler’s role as he is attracting voters who otherwise would support the Republican candidate, Dan Maes.

Some 41 percent of likely Colorado voters said they would vote for Democrat John Hickenlooper, the current mayor of Denver, the survey found.

Some 33 percent said they would support Maes and 16 percent said they planned to support Tancredo, who left the Republicans to run as a candidate for the little-known American Constitution party.

Without Tancredo in the race, Maes and Hickenlooper would be tied at 45 percent each, according to the poll.
