July 17, 2014 - Udall, Gardner Tied In See-Saw Colorado Senate Race, Quinnipiac University Poll Finds; Democrat's Job Approval Hits All-Time Low
PDF format

The closely-watched U.S. Senate race is tied with 44 percent for U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, the Republican challenger, and 42 percent for Sen. Mark Udall, the Democratic incumbent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Another 10 percent are undecided.

This compares to the results of an April 24 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University showing Sen. Udall at 45 percent to 44 percent for Rep. Gardner.

Today, Udall leads 86 - 5 percent among Democrats, while Republicans go to Gardner 85 - 5 percent. Independent voters go 43 percent for Udall and 40 percent for Gardner.

Colorado voters give Udall a negative 42 - 46 percent job approval rating, his lowest net approval ever and down from a 42 - 42 percent split in April. Voters say 49 - 40 percent that Udall does not deserve to be reelected, tying his lowest score on that measure.

Udall gets a slightly negative 40 - 43 percent favorability, compared to Gardner's slightly positive 34 - 31 percent score.

Udall is too liberal, 40 percent of voters say, while 7 percent say he is too conservative and 40 percent say he is "about right." Gardner is too conservative, 32 percent of voters say, while 7 percent say he is too liberal and 37 percent say he is "about right."

"This race shifts back and forth a point or two and remains too close to call. There's a whole lot at stake as Sen. Mark Udall runs neck and neck with U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, the GOP challenger, in a marquee race that could tip the balance of the Senate," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll.

Colorado voters give each candidate mediocre character grades:
  • Voters say 45 - 41 percent that Udall is honest and trustworthy, compared to 41 - 27 percent for Gardner;
  • Voters split 44 - 44 percent on whether Udall cares about their needs and problems, compared to 42 - 33 percent for Gardner;
  • Udall has strong leadership qualities, voters say 51 - 36 percent, compared to 42 - 26 percent for Gardner.
Gardner would do a better job than Udall on the economy and jobs, voters say 46 - 35 percent. Looking at other issues, voters say:
  • 44 - 39 percent that Gardner would be better helping the middle class;
  • 40 - 38 percent, a tie, that Gardner would be better on immigration;
  • 44 - 37 percent that Udall would be better on energy and the environment;
  • 41 - 41 percent on who would be better on the new health care law;
  • 43 - 37 percent that Udall would be better on abortion;
  • 47 - 34 percent that Udall would be better on issues important to women;
  • 39 - 38 percent, a tie, that Udall would be better on the minimum wage;
  • 46 - 33 percent that Gardner would be better on gun control;
  • 45 - 37 percent that Gardner would be better balancing needed and unneeded spending. President's Approval & 2016 White House Race
Colorado voters disapprove 58 - 39 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing, compared to a 59 - 38 percent disapproval April 24.

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is the man to beat in Colorado in an early look at the 2016 presidential race, edging former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by a thin 46 - 43 percent margin. Clinton gets 42 percent to 40 percent for N.J. Gov. Christopher Christie. She tops former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush 44 - 40 percent and squeaks by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee 44 - 41 percent.

From July 10 - 14, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,147 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.
