Obama +1 in Colorado — SurveyUSA/Denver Post

The Rocky Mountain state remains much like the rest of the Battlegrounds — hotly contested with little breathing room between the candidates. They gave the party ID in the write up as dead even, Democrats 34%, Republicans 34%, Independents 30%. This is interesting since in 2008 the party ID was actually R +1, Dem: 30, Rep: 31, Ind: 39 and in 2004 the party ID split was R +9, Dem: 29, Rep: 38, Ind: 33.  Romney leads by 2-points among Independents but is down 1-point overall. Hmmmmmm:

After months of campaigning, multiple visits and millions spent on advertising, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are dead even in Colorado, according to a new Denver Post poll. The poll results — first announced Friday on the noon broadcast of DPTV — show Obama ahead of Romney by a single, statistically insignificant percentage point, 47 to 46 percent. When former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, who is running as the Libertarian nominee for president, is factored in, Obama’s single-percentage-point lead remains, 45 percent to 44 percent. Johnson registers at 3 percent of the vote. Both samples have a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points. Romney’s support is strongest among whites, military families, gun owners, voters in Colorado Springs and opponents of abortion. Obama’s support is strongest among women, Hispanics, voters in the metro area, voters who earn less than $40,000 a year and supporters of abortion access. The poll was conducted for The Post by the firm SurveyUSA. Pollsters contacted 750 Colorado adults — 676 of whom are registered voters — between Sunday and Wednesday. Of those, 615 were seen as likely voters. Of voters included in the sample, 34 percent said they are Republicans, 34 percent said they are Democrats and 30 percent identified as unaffiliated voters.
