John Hickenlooper Retains His Metro Denver Clout

Gov. Hickenlooper
John Hickenlooper has a 61 percent approval rating among Denver metro voters. His age contemporaries approve him the most. Voters 65 to 74 years old give him a 68 percent approval, a rating he also received from post college degree holders.

Not surprising, his lowest approval numbers come from conservatives (35%) and Republicans (34%) and his highest from liberals (82%) and fellow partisan Democrats (75%). Given Hickenlooper’s independent reputation, he does well among unaffiliated voters (68% approval).

Hickenlooper continues to be listed as either a prospective vice president on the Democratic ticket or member of a new Democratic cabinet. This poll appears to make him valuable, at least in Colorado, a swing state in the presidential election.

Survey conducted with 600 likely voters in the seven-county Denver metro area by Ciruli Associates in May 2016 with a plus or minus of 4 percentage points. One-half the sample of 300 likely voters has a plus or minus of 5.6 percentage points.
