U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today released a new Grove Insight poll, which shows the race for Colorado’s Third Congressional District in a statistical tie. The poll shows Democrat Sal Pace climbing to well within the margin of error, running 39-42 against the incumbent.

In all the public polling available, incumbent Congressman Scott Tipton, R-Colo., has never broken 50 percent, according to Pace's campaign.

“These results show that Coloradans are fed-up with the gridlock and partisanship in Washington and want elected officials who will work across the aisle to get things done,” Pace said in a prepared statement. “It also proves that our positive message of standing up for hardworking Colorado families has given us the momentum going into the final stretch.”

The latest poll shows that Tipton’s votes to end Medicare’s guaranteed benefits and raise the premiums that seniors pay by $6,400 are not popular among Colorado families, according to Pace's campaign.

Almost half of all respondents — 46 percent — had a negative opinion of how Tipton a negative evaluation of his time in office, with only 37 percent approving.
