Colorado Voters Not Conservative

Colorado voters polled by PPP narrowly favor marijuana legalization, strongly favor civil unions for same sex couples, and want to keep Michael Bennet and John Hickenlooper in their jobs by large margins. Other polling has shown that they favor President Obama over any of the GOP contenders in the 2012 Presidential race.

Also, "Voters are closely divided on a referendum slightly raising the state income and sales tax rates in order to fund public education. 47% disapprove and 45% approve of these potential hikes. Republicans are more against it (73%) than Democrats for it (63%), but independents side 48-44 in its favor."

This is bad news for the public education funding measure as revenue increasing measures have historically almost always see their support decline in Colorado as the election grows closer, and the election is not that close yet.
