Despite all the hand-wringing about Mitt Romney’s campaign (see, e.g., here, here, and here), Romney is slightly ahead of President Barack Obama in Colorado, a key battleground state, according to the latest Rasmussen poll.
The article on Rasmussen’s website is incorrectly dated August 7, 2012. The poll was carried out yesterday and the results were published today.
Six percent of survey respondents were undecided. Typically in a race against an incumbent, undecided voters break toward the challenger.
The Rasmussen poll follows a Denver post poll last week showing Obama 1 point ahead of Romney.
Colorado has 9 electoral votes.
