As the Rocky Mountain News reports:
John McCain has edged ahead of Barack Obama in Colorado and now leads the Democratic presidential contender by 2 points, a poll released today says.
The Quinnipiac University polls shows McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee, the top choice among 46 percent of likely Colorado voters. Obama is the top choice among 44 percent of likely voters.
A month ago, Obama held a 49-44 percent lead over McCain in the same poll.
And in the U.S. Senate race, Republican Bob Schaffer has closed the gap against Democrat Mark Udall. Udall was ahead a month ago by 10 percentage points, but the latest numbers show a dead heat – 44 to 44.
The poll, conducted for the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, zeroes in on key battleground states – Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin – where the presidential contest is expected to be very close.
