🚨RATING CHANGE🚨: Politico Moves Colorado Senate Race Toward Hickenlooper
“Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, the Democratic nominee, is consistently ahead of first-term GOP Sen. Cory Gardner”
Denver, CO – This morning Politico moved the Colorado senate race to “Lean Democrat” in favor of John Hickenlooper, saying that the former governor is “consistently ahead” of Senator Cory Gardner.
The rating change comes a week after a new poll showed Gardner down 29 percent with unaffiliated voters, who make up more than 40% of the state’s electorate. Gardner’s support has consistently been underwater with Colorado voters and Hickenlooper has held a consistent lead in head to head polling. Even Gardner’s home field network Fox News said yesterday that the race “do[esn’t] look savable” for Republicans.
While Gardner has inextricably linked himself to President Trump, his weaknesses go far beyond the unpopular president: Gardner is winning even fewer votes than Trump himself — who has basically written off Colorado as a winnable state. Despite Coloradans giving Gardner failing marks, the Colorado Democratic Party is taking nothing for granted and has launched a robust statewide campaign.
