Gravis Marketing Colorado Poll Shows Gardner and Hickenlooper Ahead

Gravis Research By Gravis Research July 16, 2014

Gravis Marketing conducted a random survey on 7/8-7/10 of 1106 registered voters in Colorado regarding statewide candidates.  The s results of this survey are accurate at the 95% confidence and carries a margin of error of ±3. Gravis contacted registred voters using automated telephone calls.

Gravis Marketing first surveyed the US Senate race to find that Congressman Cory Gardner (R) leading Democratic Senator Mark Udall 47%-43% with the Libertarian candidate Gaylon Kent taking 6% in the poll.  This seat is currently listed as a tossup in the average and is being seen as a must win race by both parties in order to maintain or take control of the US Senate.

The Gubernatorial race was also surveyed and Gravis found Governor John Hickenlooper (D) leading Ex-US Representative Bob Beauprez (R) 49%-43% with the Libertarian candidate Matt Hess taking 6% in the poll.  The difference between why Hickenlooper is ahead and why Udall is underperforming him is because of a 12-point spread in Independent voters.  More independents are voting for Gardner (R) and Hickenlooper (D) at the moment instead of for Udall (D) and Hickenlooper (D).  Gravis also found that the Libertarian candidate is taking 6% of the respondents, it is possible that the Libertarian is dragging Udall’s numbers down and if the Libertarian was left out of the poll the results could tighten up in favor of Udall (D).

Cherie Bereta Hymel, head of Gravis Marketing stated, “We are probably going to see these races tighten up by Election Day, but at the moment Cory Gardner is in a good position to win the senate race.” These races have closed up since the primary and Gravis Marketing will continue to poll Colorado to see if there are any changes in the Senate and Gubernatorial races.

The Attorney General, Secretary of State, and Treasurer races were also polled in this survey.  In the Attorney General race Cynthia Coffman (R) leads Don Quick (D) 42%-38% with the Libertarian candidate David Williams taking 9%.  As for the Secretary of State race Wayne Williams (R) leads Joe Neguse (D) 42%-39% with the Libertarian candidate David Schambach taking 7%.  Finally, in the Treasurer race incumbent Treasurer Walker Stapleton (R) leads former Congresswoman Betsy Markey (D) 44%-41% with the Libertarian candidate David Jurist taking 6% of the vote.  The Secretary of State and Attorney General races have a higher number of undecided voters compared to the Treasurer, Governor, and Senate races respectfully.
