Poll: Colorado Springs voters big on Hickenlooper

While Colorado Springs is known as the state’s GOP bastion, voters in the Pikes Peak region are backing Democrat John Hickenlooper in the governor’s race, according to a recently released poll.

The poll by research firms Public Opinion Strategies and FM3 shows support for Hickenlooper is deeper in Colorado Springs and Pueblo than it is in rural parts of the state. The Denver mayor and frontrunner in the race is besting Republican Dan Maes with 48 percent of the vote statewide and 52 percent of voters here, the poll of 473 voters shows.

That's a shocker because Democrats consider pulling 40 percent of the vote in Colorado Springs a landslide victory.     More -
