A new poll released this morning shows both statewide ballot measures -- including one that would require genetically engineered foods to be labeled -- would pass if the election were held today.
The Elway Poll of 406 voters shows that 2 in 3 voters intend to vote for the GMO labeling measure, initiative I-522. Among the most likely voters, the measure was leading 64 percent to 24 percent.
Support for the measure is particularly strong amongst voters with annual incomes over $100,000; 54 percent of that demographic is “definitely” planning to vote for the measure.
The other measure on this year’s ballot -- a Tim Eyman offering that strengthens protections for signature gatherers and make it harder for judges to pull voter initiatives from the ballot -- is leading by 36 points.
