DENVER, Colo. (KUSA) - The battle to become Colorado's next U.S. Senator is getting even closer, according to a new poll.

Incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet (D) and Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck (R) are in a virtual tie, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll of 750 likely voters.

The telephone survey revealed Buck had 47 percent support to Bennet's 45 percent support. Four percent of respondents preferred another candidate and four percent were undecided, according to the poll.

Rasmussen reclassified the race as a "Toss-Up." It has previously been listed as leaning toward the Republican candidate who, less than two weeks ago, held a 50 percent to 45 percent lead.

The poll was conducted on Thursday and has a margin of error of four percent.

Rasmussen did not release demographics of those surveyed and did not say in which part of the state the respondents reside.

    So Ken Buck thinks being gay or lesbian is achoice like becoming a alcoholic. He said you choose your partner. Well he is straight and has a femail partner who he chose, so guess he's an alcoholic too. By the way he is appearing with Jim Demint @ MEsa State Thursday. If these 2 were that would mean a single female who is a teacher who is raped and forced to keep the baby would lose her job and would be able to prosecute because its "buyers remorse" . Please voters do not let this situation present itself. And also these Tea Partiers are against BIG Government, but would pass laws banning abortion and pregant women who are single from being teachers.
