New Poll Says Amendments Failing

Amendments 60, 61 and Proposition 101 are now struggling to find support, according to a 9NEWS-Denver Post poll conducted by Survey USA. However, large numbers of voters remain undecided.

According to the poll, Amendment 60, which seeks to lower property taxes, only has 10 percent support in the survey. Forty-eight percent of voters are opposed to it while 42 percent remain uncertain.

Amendment 61, which seeks to restrict bonding and borrowing by government, is also only supported by 10 percent of those surveyed. It’s opposed by 49 percent while 40 percent are uncertain.

Proposition 101, which seeks to lower income taxes and vehicle registration fees, is doing the best of the three tax measures, but still only 12 percent of the respondents support in this poll. Forty-four percent opposed the measure and 44 percent are undecided.

“The general rule of thumb is that you want to be in the 50s or 60s at this point intime,” said Political Analyst Floyd Ciruli. “That’s because late deciders tend to go overwhelming against ballot measures. For the conflicted or the ill-informed, no is the safer vote.” Note: CAR and many local associations and business groups oppose the three measures.
