Tim Hoover’s Denver Post year-end review of John Hickenlooper gave him good initial grades, but Republicans accuse him of avoiding hard choices.
The public liked Hickenlooper’s first year. See blog: Hickenlooper – The Nonpartisan Governor
“A poll released last week from Denver pollster Floyd Ciruli shows Hickenlooper with a 59 percent approval rating from Coloradans and only a 17 percent disapproval rating. Another recent poll pegged him as the second-most-popular governor among 37 states where opinions on governors had been polled in 2011.
‘Definitely, given that these are difficult times for politicians, he has maintained the popularity he came into office with,’ Ciruli said.”
