The authors of a wide-ranging political poll last week showing relatively little concern among Colorado voters about illegal immigration released more data from the poll today that reaffirmed the point.

The “Part 2” follow-up findings by Colorado pollster Magellan Strategies from its April 26-27 land-line and cell-phone survey of 500 likely 2018 general election voters suggest our purple-state electorate is ambivalent about repealing Obamacare, with 48 percent opposing the current health-care law and 47 supporting it. And fully 60 percent of all respondents in both parties said the Democratic Party is out of touch — topped by 63 percent who said the Republican Party is out of touch.

On immigration, 53 percent of respondents were against a proposal to withhold federal funding from jurisdictions deemed “sanctuary cities,” and just a little shy of two-thirds, or 62 percent, opposed building a multibillion-dollar wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.

In Part 1 of its survey findings released a few days ago, illegal immigration turned up way down the list of Colorado voters’ most pressing concerns. Among survey respondents overall, only 7.2 percent thought illegal immigration should be the top priority for Congress and the president to address. “Create good jobs/grow economy,” “funding transportation infrastructure,” “reduce government spending/national debt,” “National security/fighting terrorism,” “repeal/replace Obamacare,” and “tax reform” all polled higher. Immigration was in fact at the bottom of the list of specific issues submitted to the survey respondents.
