DENVER (November 19, 2015) – In new poll numbers released by Quinnipiac University today only 30% of respondents said that Senator Michael Bennet deserved reelection. Another 41% believe Bennet does not deserve to be reelected next year.
Bennet is facing sharp criticism for his support of Obamacare, his choice to refuse to take a stance on Colorado’s initiative to eliminate private health insurance, and his lack of accessibility to his constituents.
“If I were Michael Bennet these numbers would deeply concern me,” said Kelly Maher, executive director of Compass Colorado. “Republicans haven’t yet coalesced around an opponent, so there’s not even a well-publicized alternative option yet, and still less than a third of Coloradans believe he deserves to keep his job.”
