Rasmussen Reports released a new poll showing Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ken Buck leading appointed Sen. Michael Bennet 51 percent to 43 percent. The survey of 750 likely voters was conducted on Sept. 27, with a margin of error of 4 percent.
“This poll is further evidence that Coloradans are responding positively to Ken’s message of reining in spending and creating jobs,” said Buck campaign manager John Swartout. “These polls also show that people are sick and tired of Bennet’s dishonest smear campaign against Ken Buck.”
Moving outside the parameters of the press release, the poll shows that Buck’s message of Bennet as a rubber stamp for Obama’s failed economic agenda is sticking, and that Bennet’s wimpy attempts to run and hide from voters and the media are backfiring.
The Rasmussen poll comes just a day after Fox News released a poll showing Buck leading Bennet outside the margin of error.
