Colorado Senate: Public Policy Polling Finds Race Tied

The Colorado Senate race “is all tied up with a week to go,” according to a new PPP survey.

Michael Bennet and Ken Buck are each getting support from 47% of voters in the state.

Bennet’s hanging in there pretty well given his status as an unpopular incumbent. At 51%, a majority of voters in the state disapprove of the job he’s done since being appointed last year to only 40% who approve of him. Usually you’d be dead in the water with those kinds of numbers as an incumbent but he lucked out when Republicans nominated an unappealing candidate of their own. 49% of voters have an unfavorable opinion of Ken Buck to only 44% who see him favorably.

The Real Clear Politics average for this race currently favors Buck by 1.0 points.
