The New York Times wrapped up a very long “live” poll in CO-6, and the final numbers aren’t much better for Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) than they were at first glance a few weeks back. The Crowmentum continues!
Colorado 6, final: Crow 47 (D), Coffman 38 (R, inc)
We had Crow+10 in September. Widely considered a “lean Dem” race at this point, and this certainly won’t dispel that notion https://t.co/rAZYJpitvP

In discussing its polling data in CO-6 and other key Congressional races around the country, Nate Cohn of the New York Times wrote on Wednesday that he expects these results to more or less hold depending on turnout in the General Election. This analysis fits with everything else we’ve seen lately, from national Republicans abandoning Coffman to Coffman’s own campaign releasing an internal poll showing their candidate losing to Democrat Jason Crow.
We’ve learned from prior races that Coffman has a way of sticking around and pulling out a victory on Election Day, so it’s way too early for Democrats to start celebrating in CO-6. Nevertheless, Crow appears to be a solid favorite with less than three weeks to go.
