Poll: Colorado voters oppose recalls over gun laws

By  | 

DENVER (AP) -- A new poll says most Colorado voters oppose recall efforts against two Democratic legislators who supported stricter gun laws, but a majority of voters disagree with the new legislation.

The Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday showed that 54 percent of voters don't think Senate President John Morse should be recalled, and 52 percent oppose the recall of Sen. Angela Giron. But the poll is statewide, not specific to their districts.

Colorado Democrats this session passed a package of new gun laws without Republican support, including limits on ammunition magazines and an expansion of background checks on firearm sales. The laws were a response to mass shootings last year.

The poll of 1,184 registered voters was taken from August 15-21 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
