In a poll released today, Reuters/Ipsos reports Colorado Republican Ken Buck leads appointed Democrat Senator Michael Bennet 49-40 percent. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 4 percentage points. The Reuters surveys tend to be liberal leaning, so the news bodes well for the Buck campaign’s focus on Bennet’s “rubber stamp” support for Barack Obama’s failed economic policies.
The Reuters poll also shows a jump for Buck since the Rasumussen survey conducted on August 11, the day after the primary. That poll, with the same margin of error, showed Buck with a 46-41 lead over the appointed Democrat incumbent Bennet.
