About this Poll
This study, conducted for the University of Denver by Selzer & Co. of Des Moines, Iowa, is based on interviews with 712 Colorado residents ages 18 or older. Interviewers contacted respondents using lists of random-digit numbers for both landline and cell phones. Responses were adjusted by age, race, and educational attainment to reflect the general population based on recent Census data.
Questions based on a subsample of 604 likely voters have a maximum margin of error of plus or minus 4.0 percentage points. This means that if this survey were repeated using the same questions and the same methodology, 19 times out of 20, the findings would not vary from the percentages shown here by more than plus or minus 4.0 percentage points. Results based on smaller samples of respondents—such as by gender or age—have a larger margin of error.
To qualify as likely Colorado voters, respondents had to say they live in Colorado and would definitely vote in the November 2012 election.
The survey was conducted October 4th and 5th, 2012, with interviews lasting approximately 18 minutes.
