Polis at Political Risk with Proposition HH

In the last week of this legislative session, Governor Polis and Democrats fashioned a complex solution to a pending property tax increase in 2024. It will appear on the ballot this November. The Magellan polling firm just completed a 662 voter poll that showed an initial reading of Proposition HH had 54 percent voter support. But providing additional information about it saw support decline to 43 percent and opposition rise to 46 percent from 34 (see table – Second Read). Even after providing additional information, the confusion continued; more than 70 percent of voters were basically uncertain on the highly complex ballot proposition.
