Udall vs. Gardner – One Point

The first public poll of the Colorado Senate race, published by Scott Rasmussen, shows newly announced Senate candidate Cory Gardner one point behind incumbent U.S. Senator Mark Udall.

Recent Quinnipiac polls had Udall at the lower 40 percent range and barely ahead of his opponents, most of whom dropped out of the race and endorsed Gardner.

  • Early poll confirms very close race, with slight incumbent advantage
  • Colorado now on U.S. Senate target list
  • Race will be expensive and negative
  • Each party wants to motivate their base. Where independents go and what happens in D.C. will have major impact.
