Tancredo Independent Bid May Cost GOP Colorado Governor’s Race
Tom Tancredo has brought Republican Party nightmares vividly to life, splitting conservative voters in half and delivering a hefty plurality to Democrat John Hickenlooper in a three-way general election race, according to the poll.
In that matchup based on interviews with 1,015 likely voters, Tancredo — representing the tiny American Constitution Party — would match Republican Dan Maes at 24 percent support, while Hickenlooper would walk away with 46 percent of the vote. Tancredo would do the same to Republican Scott McInnis, the poll said.
If Tancredo’s numbers hold up, the GOP can likely write this one off.
