Partisan Differences on Most Ballot Issues

In the late September metro area poll on Colorado’s seven ballot issues, partisan differences range from 55 points between “yes” and “no” on minimum wage, 38 points on single-payer, down to 10 points on the primary election and 15 points on the presidential election.

Democrats are highly in favor of minimum wage, medical aid in dying and the new cigarette tax. Republicans like Raise the Bar, but not much more. Fifty percent support the presidential election proposition. They strongly oppose the single-payer proposal and the minimum wage. Raise the Bar proposition is fragile and it faces a wave of editorial opposition. Unaffiliated voters are more supportive than members of either party for the presidential election proposition and adding them to primary elections (not surprising).
