John Hicklenlooper 46%, Tom Tancredo 25%, Dan Maes 21% and sinking like a rock
The campaign for governor of Colorado has barely begun and already, John Hickenlooper and Tom Tancredo are surging in the polls while the ethically challenged Republican, Dan Maes, is sinking like a rock. It will get worse for Maes as Tancredo’s new ad that attacks Maes’ lack of integrity (see below) sinks in with voters.
Indeed, Republican Party leaders are worried that Dan Maes will get less than 10% of the vote and relegate the GOP to minor party status under the state’s laws. In the latest Rasmussen Reports Poll, Hick gains 10 percentage points to 46%, while Tancredo climbs to 25% from 14% and Maes sinks to 21% from 24% two weeks ago. Since July 13 when I called on Maes to drop out of the gubernatorial contest, I’ve been predicting that he would get 5% to 10% of the vote in a three-way race. Given the support Maes is getting from Dan Maes Republican hacks and groupies, I think he could get 10% to 15% of the votes now. As shown below, Tancredo’s new ad, which calls Maes a con man and emphasizes Tancredo’s integrity gives voters good reasons to not support Maes. That means Governor-elect Hickenlooper still is the big favorite in the race for Colorado governor. LINK: Election 2010: Colorado Governor, by Rasmussen Reports.
