New Poll Proves Colorado Dems Are in Bad Shape for Senate Election

If this doesn't convince John Hickenlooper to stop running for president and start running for the Senate, then there may be no hope for Colorado Democrats. In a new poll of likely Democratic primary voters, only 18 percent said they approve of the current candidates on the ballot.

The survey was conducted by the Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group from July 25 to 28. If Hickenlooper, the former Colorado governor, comes to his senses and enters the fray, he'll have a humble, 51-point lead.

Six hundred likely Democratic primary voters in the state were polled and 61 percent preferred Hickenlooper, compared to 10 percent for Mike Johnston and 8 percent for Andrew Romanoff, the Denver Post reports. Another 15 percent were undecided and 6 percent favored Secretary of State Jena Griswold, who doesn't plan to run.

Given the potential to unseat Republican Sen. Cory Gardner in the fall, liberal media figures have also started to question Hickenlooper's priorities.

"Pragmatically, I wish you were running for the Senate," MSNBC host Rachel Maddow told him last month. "You are the candidate who could most easily take a Republican Senate seat in Colorado."

He dismissed her and quipped that she had "obviously been talking to Chuck Schumer."

With <1 percent support in the 2020 presidential race, one has to wonder what Hickenlooper's endgame is here. Is a 51-point lead in Colorado not enticing enough?
