    Sheesh. I've voted twice now but we're about to drop below 70%.

    That link works, and we're over 70% with 92k votes.

    Here are the current results for the issues they're polling:

    Mag ban:

    Assuming state House Bill 1224, which limits gun magazines to 15 rounds, will become law, how would you vote on a 2014 ballot measure to overturn it?
    Total Votes = 92229
    For. I oppose the limit and would vote to overturn the bill.
    64778 Votes, or 70.23 %
    Against. I support the limit and would vote to uphold the bill.
    27229 Votes, or 29.52 %
    Unsure. I haven't decided yet.
    222 Votes, or 0.240 %

    Overall legislative activity:

    During Colorado's current legislative session, the majority Democrats have passed several gun-control bills, civil unions, in-state tuition for illegal immigrant children, and are poised to take on the death penalty and a major tax hike for education. Are they overreaching?
    Total Votes = 26438
    Yes. They are ignoring a large segment of the electorate.
    23605 Votes, or 89.28 %
    No. This is the will of the voters who elected them to office.
    2455 Votes, or 9.285 %
    Unsure. I'm waiting to see what actually becomes law.
    378 Votes, or 1.429 %

    Gay marriage:

    Colorado will soon become one of 18 states that offer recognition of same-sex couples, either through or civil unions or gay marriage. Which, if either, do you support?
    Total Votes = 28832
    Civil unions
    3774 Votes, or 13.08 %
    Gay marriage
    1272 Votes, or 4.411 %
    Both
    4370 Votes, or 15.15 %
    Neither
    19416 Votes, or 67.34 %

    Bloomberg's soda ban:

    Should New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg appeal a judge's decision to strike down a citywide ban on big sugary drinks?
    Total Votes = 16376
    Yes. The ban is an important public health effort.
    626 Votes, or 3.822 %
    No. The ban doesn't make any sense.
    15555 Votes, or 94.98 %
    Unsure. I can see both sides.
    195 Votes, or 1.190 %

    Y'all are still steady at over 70%. Point this out to your politically hesitant governor ... that's more than 2:1 against. A statewide vote could overturn the law; a statewide vote could also unseat him.
