Poll: Hickenlooper leading in conservative Colorado Springs
There are certain things you can count on in Colorado politics. Denver will vote Democrat. Colorado Springs will vote Republican. Well, it may be time to reconsider that, at least in the case of Colorado Springs.
A poll released Tuesday by the Colorado Springs Gazette shows Denver Democratic Mayor John Hickenlooper leading the governor’s race in Colorado Springs with the support of 52 percent of those polled.
Republican Dan Maes was second with 34 percent and American Constitution candidate Tom Tancredo brought up the rear with 3 percent.
The poll, conducted by Public Opinion Strategies and FM3, contacted 473 voters in Colorado Springs and Pueblo — which often votes Democratic. It showed Republican Ken Buck leading incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet 56 percent to 30 percent in the U.S. Senate race.
