DENVER (AP) -- A new poll shows Democratic Gov. Hickenlooper leading all GOP challengers by a handful of points, but 49 percent of Colorado voters don't think he deserves re-election.
The Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday also put Hickenlooper's approval at 48 percent.
Hickenlooper leads former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo 46 percent to 41 percent after being statistically tied with him in August. Hickenlooper also has similar leads over the other Republican candidates -- Secretary of State Scott Gessler, state Sen. Greg Brophy, and former state Sen. Mike Kopp.
The poll also showed 55 percent of voters disapprove of new gun restrictions, but overwhelming favor universal background checks.
The poll of 1,206 registered voters was taken from Nov. 15-18 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
