Poll: Democratic senator down in tight Colorado race

Republican Rep. Cory Gardner has a narrow advantage in the Colorado Senate race, narrowly leading incumbent Sen. Mark Udall (D) in the latest SurveyUSA poll for The Denver Post.

Gardner has 45 percent to Udall's 43 percent, plus 3 percent for Libertarian nominee Gaylon Kent and 2 percent for independent candidate Steve Shogan. The survey of likely voters was conducted from Oct. 9 to 12, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points.

In the previous SurveyUSA poll from a month ago, Udall was ahead with 46 percent to Gardner's 42 percent.
