Hillary’s gender advantage

In Colorado, 15 percent of voters said that they would be more likely to vote for Clinton, and 11 percent said Clinton’s gender made them less likely, giving her a net positive of 4 percentage points among Colorado voters.

Those 4 points could be key for Clinton, considering that in 2012, President Obama won Colorado by a 5-point margin of 51 to 46 percent over GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

In a 2016 Colorado general-election match-up, the poll shows Clinton defeating Kentucky senator Rand Paul by 43 to 41 percent. Also within the margin of error, Clinton defeats Wisconsin governor Scott Walker by 42 to 40 percent.
