A survey conducted this week by Magellan Data and Mapping Strategies statistically validates the huge impact and overwhelming resonance of the Clear the Bench Colorado message of judicial accountability with the voters of this state.

The survey has a margin of error of +/- 3.31% at the 95 percent confidence interval, and was weighted based upon voter turnout demographics from the 2008, 2006, 2004 and 2002 general election cycles.
