DENVER -- Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper leads all four Republican challengers in a poll released Wednesday morning by Quinnipiac University.

The poll shows Hickenlooper beating former Congressman Tom Tancredo 47 percent to 40 percent; Secretary of State Scott Gessler, 48 percent to 38 percent; former Sen. Mike Kopp 47 percent to 38 percent; and former Congressman Bob Beauprez 48 percent to 39 percent.

The poll did not survey Republicans for their preference for the June 24 primary.

Hickenlooper's favorability rating is at 51 percent, while his unfavorability rating is at 37 percent.

In all 1,298 registered voters were surveyed from April 15-21. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.

Women gave the governor a strong favorability rating, 58 percent to 30 percent, while men were split, with 44 percent favoring and 45 percent not.

"Strong support from women and an edge among independent voters give Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper a solid foothold in his reelection effort," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll.  "Meanwhile, the Republican contenders are looking for a handhold to pull themselves up in the Rocky Mountain State."

Udall blindly follows obama and hinkenlooper does the same thing to run our state. just remember that it was the democrats that gave us obamacare. we only have begun to see what kind of trouble that will cause us in the future

    And don’t forget about him letting that Dunlap murderer off! I bet those five kids that were killed would be really pleased by all the voters in Colorado voting back in the guy that went against a guilty verdict and death penalty. We need a Governor with a spine.

    Our state is in serious trouble. The cowardly manner in which Hickenlooper handled the Dunlap situation should, all by itself, be reason not to reelect him. There are many other examples, but the Dunlap case is probably the most appalling.
