The latest Trafalgar Group poll reveals that Colorado Democrats Sen. Michael Bennet and Gov. Jared Polis fell under 50 percent as Republican candidates surge.
The Trafalgar poll, conducted last week, showed that 47.4 percent would vote for Bennet, giving him a roughly six-point advantage over his Republican challenger Joe O’Dea.
The poll showed that 41.6 percent would vote for O’Dea. There were also 5.2 percent who said they would vote for Brian Peotter, and another 5.8 percent said they chose “other,” or were undecided.
Republicans are hammering Bennet — a once failed presidential candidate who votes with President Joe Biden 98 percent of the time — for having no significant legislative accomplishments or areas of expertise in the Senate. At the same time, O’Dea marked himself as a self-made entrepreneur whose successful construction company will manage the Colorado River Headwaters Connectivity Project.
