Poll: Clinton Widens Lead In Colorado, And It’s BIG

A new poll shows Hillary Clinton has a double-digit lead over Donald Trump in Colorado, just as the GOP presidential nominee is traveling to the mile-high state for two events on Monday.

The poll, which was conducted by Monmouth University last Thursday through Sunday, shows Clinton leading Trump, 49 percent to 38 percent, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 7 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein at 3 percent. Another 3 percent of likely voters are undecided.

Earlier this year, Polls had suggested the race in Colorado was closing: A Quinnipiac University poll in mid-September shows Clinton ahead by 2 points, and a CNN/ORC International poll right before the debate gave Trump a 1-point lead. But Colorado has fallen off the battleground-state map as Clinton widened her lead way beyond the margin of error.

Clinton is leading Trump with all segments of the electorate, including white voters, 45 percent to 42 percent. Among nonwhites, Clinton is far ahead of Trump, 71 percent to 17 percent. (The majority of nonwhite voters in Colorado are Latino.)

The Monmouth poll also shows Clinton leading by 7 points among men and by 13 points among women. And the Clinton campaign still isn’t advertising on television there.

Trump is scheduled to make two stops in Colorado on Monday — the first in Pueblo, about 100 miles south of Denver, and the second in Loveland, which is roughly 50 miles north of Denver.

In the state’s Senate race, the Monmouth poll shows incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet is far ahead of his little-known GOP challenger, Darryl Glenn, 53 percent to 35 percent, according to the poll.
