Rasmussen: Romney Leads by Three in Colorado
November 1, 2012 - 2:10 pm
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Colorado Voters shows Romney still holding 50% support, while President Obama earns 47% of the vote. Two percent (2%) favor some other candidate, and one percent (1%) is undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Colorado, which Obama carried with 54% of the vote in 2008, remains one of eight Toss-Up states in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections.
The latest findings mark little change from last week when Romney led 50% to 46%. Two weeks earlier, Obama was ahead by one – 49% to 48% – but there’s been a shift in several of the swing states since the first presidential debate on October 3. In surveys in Colorado since July, Romney has earned 45% to 50% of the vote, while the president has picked up 45% to 49% support.
Sixty-nine percent (69%) of likely Colorado voters have already cast their ballots, and Romney leads 50% to 47% among these voters.
The president leads 50% to 44% among voters in the state not affiliated with either of the major political parties.
Rasmussen finds that Colorado voters trust Romney more on the economy, 53-44 and on national security, 51-46. Romney’s favorability has hit 52% while Obama’s job approval is underwater at 51%.
