Gov. Mitt Romney is now ahead of President Barack Obama among a poll of Colorado voters conducted by the Denver Post and released Friday.
The race however remains essentially tied.
Romney, the republican nominee, now leads Obama 48 to 47, with a four-point margin of error, reported the Post.
The survey asked 614 likely voters by cell phone and home numbers between Tuesday and Wednesday. The results reflect a period after the presidential Debate at the University of Denver last week, but before the vice-presidential debate on Thursday.
According to the Post poll, the debate played little role in changing people's minds about the candidates. Eighty-three percent of respondents said the debate did not change their mind.
The bump for Romney is a small shift from a Post poll conducted five weeks ago when Obama had a single point advantage over Romney (47-46).
