Colorado General Election Poll
June 21, 2018
Washington, D.C.— Ahead of the Colorado primary next week, the Democratic Attorneys General Association (@DemocraticAGs) released a recent poll of Colorado voters, which shows both Democratic primary candidates for state Attorney General, Phil Weiser and Joe Salazar, leading the Republican opponent George Brauchler by 12-points. The results show that Colorado is more than primed to swing the Colorado Attorney General seat back into the Democratic fold. Results indicated:
- Either Democratic candidate starts out with a sizeable lead over Republican candidate AG George Brauchler.
- Those Democratic leads grew when undecided voters were pushed to make a decision. Salazar enjoys a 15-point lead and Weiser enjoys a 12-point lead.
“This polling destroys the Republican Attorneys General Association’s false narrative that Colorado voters will be forced into a ‘sprint to the left’ in the primary,” said Sean Rankin, Executive Director of the Democratic Attorneys General Association. “In fact, this poll is consistent with the current groundswell of support for Democratic AG candidates like Phil Weiser and Joe Salazar from Democrats, Independents, and moderate Republicans.”
“The truth is that both Democratic candidates are well-equipped to beat George Brauchler at the ballot box, a candidate who fails in the race to the right and in the fight for moderates,” concluded Rankin.
In May, DAGA commissioned a poll on the Colorado general election from Clarity Campaign Labs. The sample includes 833 likely general election voters that were surveyed on a mixture of landline and cell phones. This polling is consistent with DAGA’s research in other states, which shows a favorable environment for Democratic Attorneys General candidates.
