A ballot measure to legalize marijuana in Colorado is seeing consistent support according to a pair of polls released Monday. The first poll, from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, showed support for Amendment 64 at 52 percent and opposition at 44 percent — a gap two points smaller than PPP’s previous poll from late October. A SurveyUSA poll showed support at 50 percent and opposition at 44 percent, the first time support has reached the 50 percent mark in that firm’s polling since mid-September.
The PollTracker average currently puts support for Amendment 64 at 51.3 percent and opposition at 44 percent.
PPP’s poll, conducted from Nov. 3-4, surveyed 1,096 likely Colorado voters through automated telephone interviews and had a margin error of 3.0 percent. SurveyUSA’s poll, conducted on Oct. 28, surveyed 695 likely voters via landlines and cell phones and had a margin of error of 3.8 percent.
