Colorado US Senate and Governor Elections … Incumbent Democrats Gov McInnis Find themself in Trouble


More Incumbent Democrats in reelection trouble … Enter the state of Colorado:

Democrat Senator Michael Bennet is in a tough battle with his two potential Republican challengers. According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, Bennett finds himself in a toss up and with poll numbers that are well below the 50% threshold that would consider him to he highly vulnerable.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds Bennet ahead of Buck 43% to 37%. With Frazier as the opponent, Bennet is essentially even. The numbers are 40% for Frazier and 39% for the incumbent.

Colorado Incumbent Democrat Scott McInnis finds himself in a battle with his rival Republicans in the most recent Rasmussen poll. McInnis won in a landslide in the 2006 election in the recent Democratic trending state of Colorado. However, he is in a dead heat for his 2010 reelection bid and finds himself well under the 50% threshold that all incumbents look for. It is yet another example of the plight of incumbent Democrats and the lack of Obama coat tails.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Colorado finds Ritter trailing Republican challenger Scott McInnis by five points – 44% to 39% – in an early look at next year’s race for governor.

Ritter’s in a virtual tie with another GOP challenger, state Senate Minority Leader Josh Penry. Ritter picks up 41% of the vote to Penry’s 40%.

Republicans have managed to find quality candidates to battle for both the governor’s and US Senate seats.

      Your information is incorrect. Democrat incumbent Gov. Bill Ritter trails his Republican Rival Scott McInnis 44-39. McInnis is a former Congressman, served in the Colorado State Legislature as House Majority Leader and is a Republican, not a Democrat. Please check your facts. McInnis is also the right person to put Colorado back on track.
