GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.—A new poll released by Quinnipiac University confirms Colorado’s voters are fed up with Sen. Mark Udall’s support of the President’s failed agenda.
The poll surveyed 1,139 registered voters in Colorado between January 29 and February 2, and shows Udall only narrowly leads several Republican challengers, many of whom fall within the poll’s margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points.
“Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Mark Udall may be the front-runner, but he can hear the footsteps of three challengers, all within a few percentage points of him,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
Colorado voters also disapprove of President Obama’s job performance 59-37 percent—one of the President’s worst approval ratings in any state or national poll since he was elected. Coloradans oppose the Affordable Care Act 60-37 percent.
“The air is getting thinner for Democrats in the Rocky Mountains,” Colorado Republican Committee Chairman Ryan Call said. “President Obama and Sen. Udall’s broken promises and failed leadership have caused Coloradans more grief than they can manage, and this poll confirms that.”
Earlier this week, the Congressional Budget Office reported that the Affordable Care Act will cost more than 2 million jobs. A state-by-state analysis of the CBO report revealed this will reduce employment in Colorado by more than 43,000 jobs.
Udall has been one of the President’s most loyal supporters in the Senate, casting the deciding vote for the Affordable Care Act and voting with the President 99 percent of the time in 2013.
