Conservation in the West Poll Colorado Press Release- February 13th, 2014

Pro-conservation candidates generate enthusiasm among Colorado voters.

  • Coloradans stand out for being the most enthusiastic toward a candidate who wants to promote greater use of renewable energy , or who “supports enhancing protections for some public lands like National Forests,”  as evidenced in the accompanying graph.
  • Conversely, Coloradans will hold anti-conservation positions against a candidate.  They are the most likely to say they will not support a candidate who voted to reduce funding for federal agencies which oversee public lands (74% less likely to vote for that candidate).
  • Colorado voters are more likely to be divided over a candidate who wants “to reduce government red tape so that there can be more oil and gas development” in the state (47% more likely, 41% less likely).
