Quinnipiac Poll: Colorado Senator Mark Udall Is in Trouble
10:54 AM, Nov 20, 2013 • By JOHN MCCORMACK
In August of this year, a Quinnipiac poll found that Colorado senator Mark Udall's approval rating was +13 (47 percent approved of his job performance and 34 percent disapproved). But a new Quinnipiac poll out today shows that Udall's positive approval rating has evaporated, and just as many Colorado voters approve of Udall as those who disapprove (with 44 percent in each camp).
In hypothetical matchups, two different Republican contenders trail Udall by just three points. Ken Buck, a district attorney who lost the 2010 Senate race to incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet, trails Udall 45 percent to 42 percent. Businessman Jamie McMillan trails Udall 43 percent to 40 percent.
The same poll shows Hillary Clinton trailing three different Republicans (Chris Christie, and Rand Paul, Paul Ryan) in 2016 presidential matchups:
President Obama's job approval rating has dropped from -15 in August to -23 in November, according to the pollster.
