Immigration Top Issue for Next Governor
October 12, 2006
In the latest statewide Ciruli Associates poll, immigration followed by education and the economy are the top issues Colorado voters want the governor and state legislature to address. Immigration, which has never appeared in more than 8 years of polling on voter priorities, currently dominates the public agenda.
Question: What is the top issue you want the governor and state legislature to address? [MULTIPLE ANSWERS]
The latest Ciruli Associates voter poll (Sept. 26-Oct. 2, 2006), sponsored by the Economic Developers’ Council of Colorado (EDCC), a consortium of local and regional economic development professionals, shows that after immigration, voter priorities are perennial issues. Education (funding) and the economy are usually on voters’ minds and the government’s agenda, followed by health care (price and accessibility), transportation and tax burden.
The statewide survey was conducted by Ciruli Associates with 500 likely Colorado voters. The political questions were part of a survey concerning economic development sponsored by the EDCC, which plans to provide an annual poll on economic development issues. The statistical range of error is ±4.4 percentage points. This analysis is the sole responsibility of Ciruli Associates.
