CNN, further confirming the notion that Cory Gardner is no longer the underdog in Colorado:

Republican Cory Gardner has opened up a four-point lead in a Colorado Senate race that’s key in determining whether Democrats can hold onto their majority, a new CNN/ORC poll shows.

Gardner held a 50 percent to 46 percent edge on first-term Democratic Sen. Mark Udall in the survey of 665 likely voters, conducted Oct. 9-13. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Gardner has now led 7 of the last 8 polls in Colorado.

CNN also finds the Democratic incumbent governor, John Hickenlooper, ahead by one point in the governor’s race.
