New Colorado Poll: John Hickenlooper +9, Biden +10

Denver’s CBS News affiliate reports:

It’s the Democrats’ race to lose. A 9NEWS/Colorado Politics survey of 1,021 registered likely voters in the state shows Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has a double-digit lead over President Donald Trump in Colorado going into the 2020 election.

Biden currently leads Trump by 10 points in Colorado, up one percentage point since interviews conducted before the president contracted COVID-19. In the race for U.S. Senate, Hickenlooper leads Gardner 48%-39%. Eight percent said they were undecided.

The Colorado race has been pegged as key by both parties to winning the majority in the GOP-controlled Senate after the November election. Democrats need to net four seats to take the gavel, or three seats if the party wins the White House.
