Democratic Party leaders are doing poorly among Colorado voters, no doubt dragging down the ticket. President Obama has a 41 percent approval rating, with only 29 percent strongly approving and 52 percent strongly disapproving. Governor Ritter has a 42 percent approval.
Buck tends to run slightly ahead of Norton in all the matches up, confirming that he maintains a lead going into the August 10 primary (see Denver Post poll).
Romanoff runs two or three points better than Bennet in the face-to-face offs.
Generally, the poll confirms about a 5-point Republican advantage going into the general election.
