So who’s really ahead in the race to be Colorado’s next governor? It depends on which poll you’re looking at, KDVR reports.

According to that survey of 580 likely voters, Hickenlooper is better known and more popular than McInnis — across the board and with independents.

Politico: Two polls released this week give starkly different pictures of the Colorado governor’s race. A Public Policy Polling survey released Wednesday shows Democrat John Hickenlooper, the mayor of Denver, with an 11-point lead over former GOP Rep. Scott McInnis. Just two days earlier, a Rasmussen Reports poll had McInnis ahead of Hickenlooper by a margin of six percent.
