Poll: Colorado Voters Divided on National Popular Vote Act

A new poll by Magellan Strategies released on Thursday found that Colorado voters are undecided about the National Popular Vote, which Gov. Jared Polis (D-CO) signed into law last week.

The National Popular Vote would tie Colorado’s electoral college votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote rather than the candidate that wins the Centennial State.

The Denver Post pointed out that the law might not be in effect for the 2020 presidential election “because one provision says it only matters if enough states join the compact to total 270 electoral votes — the number needed to win the White House.”

According to the poll, 39 percent of Colorado voters oppose the law compared to 34 percent who have a favorable opinion of the law, while 27 percent had no opinion.

The poll also showed that “voters are also evenly divided on a proposed ballot question that would repeal the new law,” according to the Denver Post.

The repeal effort is an attempt by Republicans to “drive older voters and Republicans to the polls,” according to pollster David Flaherty.

“This is no slam dunk,” Flaherty told the Denver Post. “This is an evenly split voting electorate. If you really want to win on this issue, you’ll need to put a real campaign behind it.”
