According to a poll released Thursday by Public Policy Polling, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is the second most popular governor in the country. Also, according to the poll, if an election were held today, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Mark Udall would cruise to victory.

Hickenlooper trails only Mississippi’s Haley Barbour of those governors polled by PPP this year — 53 percent of voters approve of him, compared with 23 percent who disapprove.

Democrats are pretty much unanimous in their support for Hickenlooper’s work (73 percent/10 percent), and independents are very positive, as well (53 percent/20 percent), said PPP’s Tom Jensen in an email. What really sets Hickenlooper apart from most of his colleagues across the country is that even with Republicans he comes pretty close to breaking even, with 31 percent of them approving of him compared with 39 percent who disapprove. “It’s been a very successful first year for Hickenlooper in the court of public opinion,” Jensen said.

Udall also has solid approval numbers, with 41 percent of voters approving of him, compared with 31 percent who disapprove. Udall was first elected in 2008 and will be up for reelection in 2014.

With no Senate race on the ballot in Colorado next year, PPP took a very early look at how Udall would fare at this point against a pair of potential 2014 opponents. He leads Congressman Mike Coffman by 14 points (48 percent/34 percent), and 2010 primary runner-up Jane Norton by 17 points (50 percent/33 percent).

Michael Bennet has a 38 percent approval rating, with 33 percent of voters disapproving. As with Udall, 29 percent have no opinion about Bennet’s job performance.
