Affirmative action over in Colorado?

DENVER, Colorado ” A new poll indicates that a measure on Colorado ballots to end affirmative action will pass by a wide margin.

A telephone poll of about 1,000 likely voters taken in October by Quinnipiac University showed the affirmative action question would pass 63 percent to 21 percent.

The measure would bar the state from considering race or gender in any spending or decisions, including college admissions. Similar measures have been passed in California, Michigan and Washington state, and a similar measure is on Nebraska ballots this fall.

The poll was conducted Oct. 8-12 and has a margin of error of 3 percent.
