KUSA - The race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is tied in Colorado.

That’s according to a poll released Wednesday by the University of Denver’s Crossley Center for Public Opinion and conducted by 9NEWS political analyst and local pollster Floyd Ciruli.

Clinton edges out Trump 42 to 41 percent in a two-way race, but it’s tied at 39 percent when you add in the Libertarian and Green Party candidates.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent – meaning it’s anybody’s guess who will take Colorado and its nine electoral votes on Tuesday.

It’s a substantial drop for Clinton in Colorado.

Ciruli polled 550 voters from October 29 – 31. (That’s after FBI Director James Comey announced it was looking at emails found on the laptop of disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner.)

Clinton averaged a six point lead in the Centennial State a week earlier, according to Real Clear Politics.

Pollsters also found a tightening in Colorado’s U.S. Senate race.

Incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colorado) is winning 48 to 40 percent over his Republican challenger Darryl Glenn.

That’s half the lead Bennet enjoyed a month ago when a Quinnipiac poll put him 16 points ahead.

Circuli also asked Colorado voters about seven of the nine statewide ballot questions


Here are the results:

Amendment 69: The proposal to give all Coloradans healthcare seems likely to fail. Just 25 percent of voters surveyed said they plan to vote for the amendment.

Amendment 70: The campaign to raise Colorado’s minimum wage to $12 per hour by 2020 is winning 54 to 41 percent.

Amendment 71: People are voting to make it harder to amend the state constitution. The Raise the Bar campaign is winning 53 to 34 percent.

Amendment 72:  The campaign to increase cigarette taxes is in a statistical tie with both sides getting 48 percent.

Proposition 106: Coloradans are overwhelmingly voting to let terminally ill patients end their own lives. The assisted suicide measure is winning 62 to 32 percent.

Proposition 107: Voters want a presidential primary in Colorado. The measure is leading 62 to 31 percent.

Proposition 108: Voters are less sure about opening up the primary process to unaffiliated voters. The open primary proposal is winning 50 to 40 percent. But with 9 percent still undecided, this could be a close race on election night.
