New Statewide Poll in Colorado: Still a Three-point Race
A statewide survey of 500 likely voters in Colorado was conducted by Grove Insight October 28-29 using professional interviewers. Quotas were set to ensure calling into cell phone only households. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.4 percentage points at the 95% level of confidence.
President Obama Leads in Colorado
Barack Obama continues to lead Mitt Romney bythree points in Colorado, garnering 48% of the voteto Romney’s 45%.
While still evident, the gender gap is lesspronounced here with women (49% to 44%) giving ahigher percentage to the President than men (47%to 46%).
There is a reason why this race is close – and whyObama has a slight edge. Coloradans give thePresident slightly more credit for possessing “thesteadiness and judgment to be Commander-in-Chief.” He also holds just a one-point advantage for working to re-build the middle class economy. The candidates are tied when it comes to the descriptivephrase, “you can’t really believe what he says.”
