Personhood Initiatives Remain Unpopular In Colorado

Colorado is poised to vote on a radical personhood amendment for the third time, despite the fact that the issue still remains unpopular among residents of the state. Recent polling from Project New America, which has polled on personhood initiatives since 2008, shows that just 30 percent of respondents would vote for the proposed ballot initiative this November. And the measure’s unpopularity could turn Colorado voters away from candidates who support it. Among independent voters, 47 percent say they would be more likely to vote for a candidate who opposes the personhood measure, while 19 percent say they would be more likely to vote for one who supports it.
