New Poll Shows Support for Amendment 64 in Colorado is Growing
A new poll recently released by Public Policy Polling shows that likely voters in Colorado support of Amendment 64, a ballot measure that seeks the legalization and regulation of marijuana similar to that of alcohol, and it shows that the support appears to be growing.
The survey polled 779 likely Colorado voters earlier this month and shows 47% would vote for Amendment 64 if the election were held today and only 38% would vote against it. The other 15% of those polled said they were not sure.
A similar poll conducted in June showed 46% for and 42% against, a gap of 4 percentage points that is now a 9 point gap in favor. According to PPP, the increase comes from independents, who favored Amendment 64 49-40% in June and now favor it 58-28%. 59% of Democrats favor the measure, while 61% of Republicans oppose it.
When it comes to age, those under 45 favor the measure (58-30%) while those over 45 oppose it (44-39%).
Opponents of legalization in Colorado say these numbers need to be higher at this point for the Amendment to have a chance of passing. Time will tell, but I would rather have an amendment I support gaining in the polls than losing traction.
Not that PPP does the only polling on this issue in Colorado. A Rasmussen poll done in June showed 61% favoring Amendment 64, a good enough number to pass under anyone’s assessment.
In the end it is up to advocates to get out the vote and supporters to get to the polls. These issues are decided on election day, and no amount of polling can change that. If you support Amendment 64, spread the word, especially if you live in CO.
