We’ve got the latest numbers. They’re bad for Cory Gardner and Donald Trump.
In ProgressNow Colorado’s second collaborative effort with Global Strategy Group, today we’re releasing a new Rocky Mountaineer poll of 800 Colorado voters–and the poll says Colorado voters understand Cory Gardner has put political games and his loyalty to Donald Trump ahead of Colorado during the pandemic. And they’re not happy.
Meanwhile, Trump’s approval rating has slid while Governor Jared Polis’ approval has surged as voters reward his steady response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Check out the latest Rocky Mountaineer polling and analysis right here. And then take a moment to forward this up-to-date look at Colorado politics to your friends and family.
While the COVID-19 crisis is far from over, we’re all encouraged by the data that shows staying at home for the last two months has saved lives. Until there’s a vaccine or at least an effective treatment, it’s crucial that we continue to observe the best practices that have kept us healthy since March: six feet of social distancing, masks in public, and washing our hands remain the best way to stay safe and healthy.
