Hickenlooper or Gardner…and by How Much?

Sen. Cory Gardner and John Hickenlooper

We haven’t asked readers this question since early July, when the consensus seemed to be that Democrat John Hickenlooper is headed for a comfortable victory over Republican Cory Gardner in November.

What say you now, Polsters? Who is going to win Colorado’s marquee race? Senator Cory Gardner or former Governor John Hickenlooper?

    Cory's toast. Hick's going to sink him with things like this: https://coloradosun.com/2020/09/02/cory-gardner-obamacare-affordable-care-act/?

    Hick by high single digits.   Gardner has the tri-force of doom going against him: High name recognition, high unfavorables, low favorables.

    Is Hick running?

    All I see are ads saying he is corrupt and worked to poison the atmosphere.

    • Voyageur says:

      Yeah, but to Republicans, those are good things!

      • Conserv. Head Banger says:

        The "corruption" ads come from former progressive Terrance Carroll and his "Unite Colorado" anti-corruption group. 

        Funny that Mr. Carroll says nothing about the state Republican committee and its questionable shenanigans.

          Just checking to see if we're talking about the same things. There's a "Unite For Colorado," and a "Unite Colorado," and they are quite different. Terrance Carroll is indeed behind Unite Colorado, but I think the corruption ads are coming from Unite For Colorado. They're on TV and they're still talking about signing a petition for a ballot measure that won't be on this year's ballot.

            Thanks for clearing that up, Jung.  I couldn't imagine Terrance Carroll running those ads against Hick.

            • 2Jung2Die says:

              Just a quick update, Dustin Zvonek is the point person for Unite For Colorado. He was with Americans For Prosperity for years, and has worked on a bunch of other conservative campaigns. I looked on the Sec of State website and they're listed as an Independent Expenditure Committee, so I didn't find any contribution info. Colorado Sun reported they did a $2.2 million ad buy for July and August.

              Ditto …. I was trying to figure out why the hell Terrance Carroll would be involved in such a thing. Simple answer:  he's not.

        • RepealAndReplace says:

          So this isn't even a ballot initiative … yet. It is soliciting signatures for a petition AND simultaneously defecating on Hickenlooper.

          For all the $$$$ they've spent on these ads, they've managed to bring Gardner to within 10% of Hick in the polls.

    Gardner by +10 doesn’t have a single vote yet. I’m guessing that will change on Nutters next pottie break.

    Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner boasts stronger support among his party’s base than most of the other GOP Senate contenders this year, but he is being lapped by Democratic rival and former Gov. John Hickenlooper among independents, who make up the lion’s share of the state’s active voter rolls.

    Morning Consult’s daily tracking among likely voters from Aug. 21-30 shows Hickenlooper leading Gardner by 29 percentage points, 54 percent to 25 percent, among independents.

    Morning Consult shares some news about Gardner which is bound to sting a bit….
