Hillary Clinton holds a substantial 48-35 lead over Donald Trump in a new Monmouth University Poll of voters in Colorado, where the GOP candidate is still struggling to unify his own party base.

Mrs. Clinton is winning 93 percent of self-identified Democrats, compared to just 78 percent of Republicans who are backing Mr. Trump.

And Mrs. Clinton also leads among independents, 40-28, with the rest splitting among other options, including the Libertarian and Green Party nominees.

Clinton does better among practically every demographic in Colorado than she does nationally. It is way too early to call, but if this dynamic holds, she could end up with the largest electoral margin for a Democrat here since 1964,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.

Mr. Obama has won the state two times in a row, but before that it was a usually reliable GOP state, making Mrs. Clinton’s large lead all the more striking.

The two candidates run neck-and-neck among male voters, but Mrs. Clinton builds her margin among women, who support her 56 percent to 30 percent for Mr. Trump.

Down the ballot, Sen. Michael Bennet, a Democrat, appears poised for an easy re-election, leading GOP challenger Darryl Glenn 48-35.
