Stapleton Ahead in First Poll

A recent poll of Republicans positions Colorado State Treasurer Walker Stapleton as the frontrunner for the Republican nomination for governor. The auto-dial poll was of 647 likely Republican primary voters.

Stapleton receives more than a quarter of the votes and has the second highest name identification after second-place finisher, Attorney General Cynthia Coffman.

The dominant issue reported by the poll was enforcing federal immigration laws, ranked most important by 43 percent of Republicans, with roads and transportation in a distant second-place at 13 percent. No doubt the reason why, Stapleton made opposition to sanctuary cities (i.e., Denver Aurora, Boulder) his top issue.

Thirty-nine percent of voters didn’t select a candidate. Over half the electorate has either not heard of any of the candidates or just has no opinion of them when asked to rate their favorability or unfavorability.

Stapleton has the highest name identification (45%) and favorability (33%). Coffman has more unfavorable opinion (21%) than favorable (20% and nearly twice as much unfavorable opinion (21%) as Stapleton (13%).

Vic Mitchell and Doug Robinson have no name identification and are, as of February, not factors in the race.

I would rewrite the article to point out that: "I have no clue who these people are" is the true leader.
