Survey of 750 likely voters was conducted October 29, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 4 percentage points.  Results from the poll conducted October 21, 2012 are in square brackets.  Results from the poll conducted October 7, 2012 are in parentheses.  Results from the poll conducted September 17, 2012 are in curly brackets.  Results from the poll conducted August 6, 2012 are in square brackets.  Results from the poll conducted June 6, 2012 are in parentheses.

Inside the numbers:

Sixty-nine percent (69%) of likely Colorado voters have already cast their ballots, and Romney leads 50% to 47% among these voters.

The president leads 50% to 44% among voters in the state not affiliated with either of the major political parties.

Colorado voters are now almost evenly divided when asked whom they think will win the election: 45% say Obama, 42% Romney. Seventy-five percent (75%) are excited about the choice between Obama and Romney, but 22% still say they will be voting for the lesser of two evils.

Voters in the state trust Romney more than Obama by nine points – 53% to 44% – when it comes to handling the economy and by five points – 51% to 46% – in the area of national security. But by a 51% to 46% margin, Colorado voters think the president better understands the issues of the middle class.

If faced with the toughest decision of their lives, 50% say they would rather get advice from Romney, while 46% would turn to Obama instead.
