Magellan Data and Mapping Strategies, a consulting firm that frequently works with Republican candidates, has just released a poll on the GOP gubernatorial primary that shows Scott McInnis with an early lead over Josh Penry and Dan Maes. Lots of voters still undecided, as you might expect at this stage.
“The results of this survey clearly demonstrate
that Scott McInnis enjoys broad support and name recognition across the state. Josh
Penry and Dan Maes have a lot of work to do in both support and name recognition at
this early stage of the campaign,” Magellan’s David Flaherty says in a summary of the findings.
McInnis had 34 percent support among self-identified Republican primary voters, compared to 11 percent for Penry and 6 percent for Maes. Undecideds were at 49 percent.
On their shared Western Slope home turf, McInnis leads Penry 44-26, according to the Magellan Poll.
This was an automated telephone poll of 1,649 respondents who identified themselves as Republican primary voters, conducted July 26. Results were weighted based on statewide Republican demographics from the last three cycles.
McInnis had a name ID of 80 percent, compared to 51 percent for Penry and 43 percent for Maes. Despite those name IDs, it’s clear the three candidates are still largely unknown to GOP primary voters. Each had an undecided/never heard of him image result of 50 percent or more.
