The ColoradoCare initiative is losing 30 percent to 45 percent, with a quarter of voters (24%) undecided on how they will vote. This result is similar to a Ciruli Associates poll in June in the Denver metro area (56% of the state’s voters). Proponents have made no progress and, in fact, Democratic Party support essential for them to have any chance has fragmented in recent weeks.
The Raise the Bar initiative to change the way the state constitution is amended is mostly unknown to voters, with a third (33%) stating they don’t know how they will vote. Among 67 percent who have a view, the proposal is winning by 9 percentage points (38% favor vs. 29% against).
There will be seven initiatives from voters on the ballot and two housekeeping-type amendments from the legislature.
The survey was conducted from August 7 to 16, 2016, with 712 Colorado voters by Ciruli Associates. It has a margin of error of ±3.7 percentage points.
