• Latest Colorado polls show Clinton with hefty lead over Trump – Denver Business Journal


    An aggregation by Real Clear Politics of five surveys of the state by national polling organizations — all conducted since July 5 — shows Clinton leading Trump in Colorado by eight percentage points.

    That survey of Colorado registered voters shows Clinton supported by 43 percent and Trump by 35 percent in a two-way matchup, with 21 percent of those surveyed either supporting neither of the major-party candidates, another candidate, or undecided.

    In a four-way Colorado matchup including two minor-party candidates — Libertarian Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein — Clinton still leads in the new poll, but by a narrower margin: 39 percent for her, 33 percent for Trump, 13 percent for Johnson and 4 percent for Stein.
    “With 66 electoral votes at stake in these four states, Donald Trump is playing catch-up against Hillary Clinton,” says Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion.

    The latest poll also bolsters the finding of previous surveys: That both candidates are unpopular with large numbers of voters in Colorado as elsewhere.

    In Colorado, the NBC/WSJ/Marist survey shows that 34 percent of registered voters view Clinton favorably and 62 percent unfavorably, a spread of minus 28 percentage points, while the split for Trump is 27 percent favorable, 67 percent unfavorable (minus 40 points).

    The NBC/WSJ/Marist poll also shows Clinton ahead in three other battleground states that are expected to be key in deciding the election: Florida, North Carolina and Virginia, both with and without the two dark horse candidates included.

    In the U.S. Senate race, the new survey also shows Democratic incumbent Michael Bennet leading Republican challenger Darryl Glenn by 15 points, 53 percent to 38 percent.

    The NBC/WSJ/Marist poll in Colorado was conducted July 5-11, with 794 registered voters responding. The margin of error is believed to be plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
