/ Source: The Associated Press

President Bush is running slightly ahead of Democrat John Kerry among registered voters in Colorado, a new poll shows.

The president had 48 percent support and Kerry was at 43 percent in the survey, conducted for The Denver Post by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research. Six percent of voters said they were undecided.

The poll, conducted June 15-18, has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

Colorado was considered safe for Bush, but Kerry recently began competing there although registered Republicans outnumber Democrats by 185,000. Bush won the state in 2000 by 9 percentage points over Democrat Al Gore.
