(As we’ve said for more than a week now, the Buck rape case story is really hurting him – and voters haven’t even seen the case in a TV ad yet. – promoted by Colorado Pols)
From Rasmussen Reports:
Incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet and his Republican challenger Ken Buck are in a virtual tie in Colorado’s U.S. Senate race as the candidates prepare for a nationally televised debate on Sunday.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Colorado shows Buck with 47% support to Bennet’s 45%. Four percent (4%) prefer another candidate in the race, and another four percent (4%) are still undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
These findings move the race from Leans Republican to a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings. This is the closest the race has been in eight months of surveying.
As much as I hate to admit it, the attack ads against Buck and the recent Rape case hoopla has done considerable harm to Ken Buck’s support amongst women. Although, I can’t be sure of this since I am not a platinum member of Rasmussen, I assume this is the case. It looks like this Senate race will become even more expensive in the next two weeks. Keep your seatbelt on, this is going to be a rocky ride.
