70% of Coloradans have a favorable opinion of Tebow to only 18% with a negative one. That outpaces Elway’s 65/19 rating. With Republicans he’s at an 85/6 spread that any politician would envy, and he’s at a pretty solid 58/25 with Democrats as well.

Despite Tebow’s popularity voters in the state still prefer Manning over him as Quarterback by a 53/26 margin. Democrats prefer Manning by 46 points, 60/14, while Republicans do by just a 7 point spread at 44/37. Every group of the electorate prefers Manning over Tebow except for ‘very conservative’ voters, who go for Tebow 53/28. Sports can be awfully political…

The Broncos are easily Colorado’s favorite pro sports team. 40% of voters in the state pick them to 19% for the Rockies, 9% for the Avalanche, and 6% for the Nuggets.
