American Constitution Party candidate Tom Tancredo has moved within four points of Democrat John Hickenlooper in the race for Colorado Governor, according to the latest Rasmussen poll.
Tancredo, a former Republican Congressman and presidential candidate who switched party affiliation to run for Governor, trailed Hickenlooper 42-38 with just 12% preferring Republican Dan Maes and 6% undecided.
He's come a long way since August, when a Rasmussen poll had him garnering just 18% support, compared to 31% for Maes and 43% for Hickenlooper.
Since that time, however, Maes has seen his campaign unravel in the face of numerous distractions. Many key Republican leaders have abandoned his campaign in favor of Tancredo, who has steadily climbed in the polls since declaring his candidacy in late July.
The most recent Rasmussen poll was conducted October 14, and has a 4% margin for error.
