DescriptionPublic Policy Polling released a statement Wednesday saying it held off on releasing a poll conducted last week that showed a wide margin of voters intended to recall Sen. Angela Giron, D-Pueblo.

Well, after Tuesday night’s recall election, it’s clear the firm was correct in its polling. More than 55 percent of voters in Giron’s Pueblo Senate district cast ballots to oust her from office, while about 44 percent voted against it. The margin was about 12 percentage points in a district where the Democratic party dominates.

“We did a poll last weekend in Colorado Senate District 3 and found that voters intended to recall Angela Giron by a 12 point margin, 54/42. In a district that Barack Obama won by almost 20 points I figured there was no way that could be right and made a rare decision not to release the poll,” writes Tom Jensen, director of PPP.
