Magellan Strategies, conducting an independent poll of the Colorado Republican gubernatorial primary (2/26-27; 647 likely Republican primary voters via automated telephonic device), finds state Treasurer Walker Stapleton taking the lead over Attorney General Cynthia Coffman and two others. According to the results, Mr. Stapleton holds 26% of the Republican primary vote, followed by AG Coffman’s 13%. Investment banker Doug Robinson, nephew of former presidential nominee and current US Senate candidate Mitt Romney, has 8%, while former state Rep. Victor Mitchell (R-Castle Rock) registers 5% preference.
Surprisingly, within her own party’s base respondents Ms. Coffman has a slightly upside down favorability index. According to Magellan, she records a 20:21% positive to negative rating. Mr. Stapleton, on the other hand, registers a 33:13% favorability ratio.
