Morning Consult: Hick +10, Biden +14 in Colorado

The Denver Post’s Justin Wingerter relays the latest numbers from Morning Consult, showing Democratic candidates consolidating double-digit leads in the two ticket-topping races in Colorado:

Cory Gardner looks at his poll numbers.

Here’s the poll details. Comparing these numbers to Morning Consult’s poll of Colorado at the end of July, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is stable having held a 13-point lead over Donald Trump then and over 50% then and now–but Democratic U.S. Senate candidate John Hickenlooper’s support has grown more substantially, elevating him from a 6 to a 10 point lead. For Cory Gardner, it’s very clear from these numbers that the momentum from then to now has not moved in his direction.

The six-point lead Hickenlooper saw at the end of July, and another outlier Morning Consult poll in September showing the race as close as two points, were cited as evidence that the U.S. Senate race in Colorado was “tightening”–even though there wasn’t much else to suggest that was actually happening to include corroborating polls. Today’s Morning Consult numbers, on the other hand, are back in line with consensus expectation three weeks out from the election in Colorado: which is that another massive Democratic landslide is in the offing.

Now it’s up to Colorado voters to make these numbers come true.

    Proud of Colorado for having a sane, efficient vote-by-mail system. I put my ballot in the "Official Ballot Box" (no, not a fraudulent Republican version like in California) the day after I got my ballot, on October 10.

    Expect margins to grow after Cory votes to double cross his constituents regarding this Supreme Court nomination farce.  I think I predicted 14%.

    I was never a big Hick fan because of his O & G positions.  Still I voted for him.  This time it's an easy vote  – Cory is the weakest most fanny patting Mich/Trump Senator in the Senate. His loss is Colorado's gain!
