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.
