Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Yuma, is challenging Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colorado, in one of the country's most competitive Senate races this year.

DENVER — A final Quinnipiac University poll of likely voters shows the race for governor and the U.S. Senate seat in Colorado is too close to call with Electon Day a day away.

Rep. Cory Gardner leads Sen. Mark Udall 45 percent to 43 percent, the poll, which was released Monday morning, showed, well within the 3.4 percentage point margin of error.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, faces Republican Bob Beauprez this fall.

Last week, a Quinnipiac poll had Gardner leading Udall 46 percent to 39 percent.

“Not so fast, say the latest numbers as U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner’s comfortable lead over Sen. Mark Udall becomes a race too close to call,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the poll.

“What looked like a GOP lock on a coveted Senate seat in a target state heads down to the wire with no clear leader.”

In the governor’s race, a Quinnipiac poll showed Republican Bob Beauprez leading Gov. John Hickenlooper 45 percent to 43 percent.

“Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper will have to count on an aggressive final hour ground game and a bump from the undecideds to keep the state’s top job, but it can go either way,” Malloy said.

    Let the Lies and Misinformation FLY….
    If a majority of Coloradoan’s are satisfied with the kind of dishonesty, mistruths, and despicable lies told by the Udall and Hickenlooper campaigns…. As well as Their lack of credibility and integrity in representing the State…
    Then so be it…. Sad, but very telling.
    Believe me…. forcing your neighbor to pay for your contraception is not going to save this State and this Nation.

    Udall and Hick may as well be polyps in Obama’s colon. If you admire that kind discipleship in a politician, go ahead and vote for them.

    Given that Udall has accomplished NOTHING, other than shoving Obama Care down our throats(even though his ads state we have a right to choose and be free)and that Udall obviously never had an original thought(witness his 99% voting with Obama) and with Chickenlooper performing the great Colorado Gun Grab as well as PARDONING convicted killer Nathan Dunlop and threatening the voters that he would totally pardon Dunlop IF HE/Chickenlooper loses this election….
    NEITHER OF THESES ELECTIONS SHOULD BE CLOSE. Both challengers should be winning by a landslide. Speaks to the stupidity and blind ignorance of many voters!
