The main faults in the Denver mayor’s race trace along party and ideology lines. A review of the Colorado Pols poll (May 11, 2011) shows:
• 28 point gap among partisans. Unaffiliated 40% to 37% Hancock.
• 60 point difference between liberals and conservatives. One point advantage Romer among moderates.
• Anglos one point difference, Hispanics 6 points to Romer and African-Americans 46 points to Hancock.
• Largest geographic difference, 29 points to Hancock in northeast.
The poll shows there are many moderate and GOP voters who haven’t decided (some may not vote). Hispanic and unaffiliated voters are closely split between the candidates.
