Colorado Politics — Jared Polis holds a 13-point lead over Cary Kennedy in Colorado’s four-candidate Democratic gubernatorial primary, according to a survey released Thursday by Magellan Strategies and made available early to Colorado Politics.

But the poll shows that nearly four in 10 voters remain undecided with just weeks to go before ballots are counted.

The survey of more than 500 likely voters in the Democratic primary, for which voters already are receiving mail-in ballots, shows Polis, a five-term congressman from Boulder, atop the field with 31 percent.
