The same poll that shows Gov. John Hickenlooper leading potential challengers found that voters still oppose the stricter gun control laws which he signed into law last year.
The Quinnipiac University poll found that voters oppose the laws 56 to 39 percent but 85 percent said they support background checks for all guy buyers. That's one of the issues addressed by the Democrats' gun control package.
However, voters opposed another part of the package, banning ammunition magazines holding more than 15 rounds, 51 to 45 percent.
The poll also found that 50 percent of voters favor allowing teachers and school officials to carry guns on school grounds, driven by strong support from men. In addition, 74 percent of voters said they support having metal detectors at school entrances.
