Voters in Colorado are almost evenly divided over whether or not the stimulus package helped the economy and are worried that the government will do too much in reacting to the nation’s economic problems.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds that 37% say the stimulus plan helped the economy. Slightly more (41%), however, say the stimulus plan hurt the economy, while 17% say it had no impact. (To see survey question wording, click here).
Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Republicans feel the stimulus plan hurt the economy, while 75% of Democrats say it helped. Voters not affiliated with either party are more narrowly divided.
The survey of 750 Likely Voters in Colorado was conducted on October 3, 2010 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.Rasmussen subscribers can log in to read the rest of this article.
