As Jon Murray reports for The Denver Post:
Noted: A PPP poll sponsored by @GiffordsCourage found @hickenlooper leading @CoryGardner 51%-42% (+9), with 7% undecided, among a sample of 731 voters. #copoliticshttps://t.co/BSzZdld5KT

These are pretty consistent numbers for Hickenlooper that track with what we’ve been hearing on the race. A previous poll announced just after the Primary Election on July 1 showed Hickenlooper with a 51-40 margin over Gardner. The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and Gardner’s campaign have been on a heavy anti-Hickenlooper ad blitz ever since, and it appears they have barely been able to dent Hickenlooper’s previous lead.
If the PPP/GiffordsCourage poll cited above is accurate, that 7% undecided number should be freaking out Team Gardner; it essentially means that Gardner would need to run the table with undecided voters in order to even get close to Hickenlooper by November 3. The NRSC no doubt sees similar internal numbers, which would logically mean that Gardner will continue to be left off the list of endangered Senate Republicans getting big help from national Republican groups.
Do not see this poll at RCP.
Not helping me relax.
538.com has it up on their site.
RCP has NO Colorado polling on the page I see https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2020/senate/co/colorado_senate_gardner_vs_hickenlooper-6945.html
and yet, somehow intuits the race is a "toss up." Huh????
Nice to see all their nasty commercials about Hick and corruption is paying them dividends.
Stay the course, senator. Some day they will thank you.
Saw the latest “Smiling Cory” TV commercial this morning, sipping a beer, while running old background vids with Hick saying he didn’t want to be a senator.
It almost feels like Gardner is falling into a similar claptrap he mocked Mark Udall for falling into 6 years ago. Namely, focusing on 1 or 2 issues with his opponent and dealing with this approach not getting traction. Time will tell, but that's what it looks like.
