Beneath Surface of Sept. Survey: Josh Penry’s Biggest Gains with Older Voters

For those who wish to dig a little deeper, today (at the end of this post) we release some more analysis of the results of our September survey of Colorado’s political temperature. A few highlights — in no particular order:

  • The biggest gains fueling Josh Penry‘s surge in the latest poll come among those in the over-50 age group
  • Of the eight candidates in the governor’s and U.S. Senate races who received at least 10 votes of support, five are favored most often because of agreement on key issues, while three were primarily chosen for their past record — none of the other five options registered as the main factor for support
  • No surprises: Significantly more Ryan Frazier and Ken Buck backers think primaries are good and that national groups like the NRSC should remain neutral than do Jane Norton supporters
  • Scott McInnis continues to receive the most confidence of general election strength among his supporters, with Norton not far behind — only gubernatorial hopeful Dan Maes registered less than 70 percent
