For the first half of the year, the political picture in Colorado appeared a bit unclear.
A dearth of political polling left the mood of the Colorado voter in question — known only through anecdotal interviews on the trail. But five months before the November election, we are getting a first glimpse at the broader mood of the state’s voters.
CBS News released its first “battleground tracker” poll in Colorado, based on an online poll from YouGov. The company is not the gold standard — FiveThirtyEight gives the firm a B grade on its pollster ratings — but the survey is comprehensive in is sweep of the mood.
The survey was conducted June 21-24 and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4.3 percentage points.
