An Oct. 4 Rasmussen Reports survey showed likely voters supporting Hickenlooper over Tancredo by 43 percent to 35 percent, with Maes trailing at 16 percent.
"No question it helps the Democrats," the president of the Republican Governors Association says of Tancredo's presence on the ballot, adding, "When you split the conservative vote, that's Barack Obama's fondest prayer."
