A new Fox News poll of the Colorado gubernatorial race shows Democrat John Hickenlooper leading third-party candidate Tom Tancredo by just three points. Republican Dan Maes came in at 6%.
The last Fox News poll of the race, from Oct. 16, showed Hickenlooper leading Tancredo 45%-40%, with Maes at 10%. Maes’ implosion and Tancredo’s fundraising success have made this race much closer than expected.
The TPM Poll Average for this race shows Hickenlooper (47.3) leading Tancredo (43.3) and Maes (6.1).
