Biden Leads Trump By 15 Points In Colorado

A Keating-OnSight-Melanson survey survey of likely Colorado voters, conducted Oct. 8-13, found Democrat John Hickenlooper up 10 points over Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, 51% to 41%, with 7% undecided, confirming similar results from the two nonpartisan polls released in the last week by Colorado Politics/9News and Morning Consult. The Keating-OnSight-Melanson survey also found Donald Trump trails Joe Biden among likely Colorado voters by 15 points, 54% to 39%, with 4% undecided.

Keating onserved that Gardner's standing with Colorado voters appears to be tethered to Trump's unpopularity in Colorado, which has been remarkably consistent since early 2018. According to the recent polling, 60% of state voters give the president a thumbs down, compared to 39% who view him favorably, and fully half of respondents asked to grade Trump give the Republican an "F."

By a two-to-one margin, Colorado voters say they believe Trump "acted irresponsibly in his handling of the risk of infecting the people around him with the coronavirus," with 62% agreeing and 31% disagreeing with the statement. The numbers are similar to the 61% who disapprove of the president's handling of the pandemic, compared to 35% who approve.

Voters' views of Gov. Jared Polis' response to the pandemic are almost a mirror image of their impressions about Trump, with 62% saying they approve of the job the Democrat is doing and 27% disapproving.

Asked which issues or problems the president and Congress should act on next year, 29% of voters said the pandemic tops their list, followed by 23% who said the economy. Health care came in third, with 8%, followed by racial justice and police reform at 4% and the environment and climate, also at 4%.
