DENVER – A new survey commissioned by Americans for Prosperity-Colorado (AFP-CO) shows that Coloradans in metropolitan state senate districts are largely opposed to paying additional fees when purchasing gas. Key findings from the survey highlight the critical theme that the proposed gas fees should serve as a nonstarter for any legislator that approves the fee given that constituents across the aisle are not supportive.
The topline results demonstrate the following:
AFP-CO State Director Jesse Mallory issued the following statement:
“State lawmakers are currently dead set on moving forward with this fee proposal that will disproportionately impact the low-income communities and small businesses that these lawmakers claim to be the center of their economic recovery efforts. After years of failing to set aside money in the general fund to save up for transportation improvements and irresponsible spending, it is immoral to place additional burdens on constituents at a time like this. If everything else is more important to the legislature than transportation funding, lawmakers need to be honest and tell Coloradans just that.”
The telephone survey, which included landline and mobile phones, was conducted by Public Opinion Strategies in Colorado Senate Districts 19, 21, 22, 24, and 25 from February 11, 2021, to February 14, 2021. It was conducted among 750 likely voters (150 in each district) with an overall margin of error of +-3.58 percent. The full poll results may be found here.
