Magellan Data and Mapping Strategies today released the results of a 954N automated survey likely general election voters in Colorado conducted August 25th and August 26th. This survey has a margin of error of +/- 3.1% at the 95% confidence interval. The survey includes image ratings and a ballot test in the election for Governor, and ballot tests in the elections for Attorney General, Treasurer and Secretary of State.
In the election for Colorado Governor, among likely voters Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper leads Republican nominee Dan Maes by 19 points, 46% to 27%, and former Congressman Tom Tancredo is third with 17%. The generic “another candidate” receives 3% support, and 6% are undecided. These results are not much of a surprise, confirming Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, at this time, is in good position to win in a three way race with Dan Maes and Tom Tancredo. Looking at how the Republican vote breaks, we find Dan Maes leading Tom Tancredo by 32 points, 55% to 23%, and John Hickenlooper with 13%. Among unaffiliated voters John Hickenlooper leads by 26 points over Tom Tancredo 49% to 23%, and Dan Maes is third with 17%.
