Colorado is a key battleground state in presidential campaigns, and the outcome of its elections have important implications for state and national politics and policy making.  The Colorado Political Climate (CPC) survey is an annual nonpartisan poll of Colorado residents that serves as an ongoing record of opinion on public affairs within the state.   Conducted every October, the CPC is intended to gauge “the pulse of Colorado” with respect to state and national issues, elected officials, and a broad spectrum of political characteristics.  The CPC is designed and implemented by students and faculty at the University of Colorado Boulder, and thus serves as a unique teaching tool across a variety of disciplines. The CPC is entirely funded by University of Colorado resources.
