Rasmussen poll: Buck leads Bennet by four points

Two days from a U.S. Senate debate in Colorado Springs, a Rasmussen poll shows Republican Ken Buck leading Democrat Michael Bennet 49 percent to 45.

This poll includes those leaning one way or the other.  Six percent favor another candidate, and five percent are undecided.

Rasmussen Reports surveyed 750 likely voters.  It was conducted Tuesday (Sept. 14) and has a margin of error of +/- 4 percentage points.

The race remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.

In late August, Buck held an identical 49 to 45 percent lead when leaners were included in the totals. Leaners are those who initially indicate no preference for either of the candidates but answer a follow-up question and say they are leaning towards a particular candidate.

Indicative of the closeness of the race is the finding that 72 percent of voters for both candidates say they've already made up their minds how they will vote on Election Day.

The Gazette and News First 5 will host a debate between Buck and Bennet on Friday night in Colorado Springs.
