Obama Lead in Colorado Disappears

Three new Colorado polls add to the confusion of who’s in front – Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?  The working assumption has been that Obama had a lead of 2 to 3 points over Romney since January. But, a New York Times/CBS News/Quinnipiac poll places Romney up 5 points.

However, two additional polls from Rasmussen and PPP show an 11 point spread, from a tie in Rasmussen to Obama up 6 in PPP.

Clearly, Obama is worried and spending two days in Colorado with the Choice ad attacking Romney on economic fairness and a Planned Parenthood ad accompanied by a web video, both claiming Romney is too extreme on reproductive rights.  Obama is also using Sandra Fluke to introduce him at a rally targeted at women and independent voters.
