Poll: Colorado voters coming out against tax-slashing measures

Three tax-slashing measures on the November ballot are still doing badly with Colorado voters despite many people saying they’re no longer undecided.

That’s the result of the latest Denver Post/9News poll, which shows the majority of initiatives on the November ballot aren’t faring well with voters.

Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101, which would cut billions of dollars in state and local spending, were not doing well in late September, when Survey USA conducted the last Denver Post/9News Poll on the issues.

That survey showed that none of the three issues was receiving more than 12 percent support, but at least 40 percent of voters were undecided on each of the measures.

Those gaps have narrowed with likely voters in the latest poll, conducted Tuesday through Thursday. The automated poll’s margin of error ranges from plus or minus 4.1 to 4.4 percentage points.

On Amendment 60, which would cut property taxes, 18 percent now say they would support the measure, but 59 percent say they’re against it. Twenty- three percent say they are unsure.

Amendment 61 would prohibit all state borrowing and make it harder for local governments to issue debt. Eighteen percent of likely voters favor the measure, while 63 percent oppose it. Twenty percent say they are unsure.

Proposition 101, which would cut vehicle-registration fees and income taxes and eliminate taxes and fees on phones, cable, satellite and some other services, is doing slightly better. The poll showed 21 percent of likely voters in favor of it, 55 percent against and 24 percent not certain.
