A new Ramussen poll of the Colorado Senate race shows Sen. Michael Bennet (45%) trailing Republican Ken Buck (47%) by just 2 points, prompting the pollster to shift the race from “Leans Republican” to a “Toss-Up.”
The poll was the first public survey of the race since October 4, and also found that 4% of voters are still undecided. The poll has a margin of error of 4 points.
The previous Rasmussen survey, from October 3, showed Buck leading Bennet 50%-45%.
The TPM Poll Average for this race shows Buck leading Bennet 48.4%-44.4%.
