New CO-03 Poll Shows Overwhelming Majority Doesn’t Think Congressman Scott Tipton Deserves Reelection

January 25, 2012

The House Majority PAC today released a new Public Policy Polling (PPP) poll that shows Congressman Scott Tipton in serious jeopardy of losing reelection.

In Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, 39% of voters support freshman Congressman Scott Tipton for reelection, while 54% think he should be replaced. House Republicans have a 37/49 favorability rating in the district and Tipton’s approval rating is 36%, with 40% of voters giving him low marks. Tipton starts out ahead only 46-39 against challenger Sal Pace, a lead that is likely to shrink as Pace’s name recognition increases.

“For the past year, Congressman Scott Tipton and House Republicans have done everything in their power to fight for tax breaks for the richest one percent at the expense of Medicare for seniors and jobs for middle class families,” said Alixandria Lapp, Executive Director of the House Majority PAC. “This November, Congressman Tipton and House Republicans will have to answer back home for their backwards priorities and failure to fight for middle class families.”

Public Policy Polling conducted this survey on behalf of House Majority PAC between January 18th and 20th. In CO-3 569 registered voters were interviewed with a margin of error of +/-4.1%. To learn more, visit the House Majority PAC website.

The latest polling numbers in Congressman Scott Tipton’s Congressional District come the same week a United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection Poll shows Democrats nationally with an 11-point lead over Republicans in a generic ballot question asked to registered voters.
