Cherry Creek Republican Women just can’t get enough of David Flaherty, CEO and founder of Magellan Strategies. There’s always something exciting and informative to report. He established the company in 2006 and oversees political and consumer analysis. He has been in the political arena for 27 years including in Washington, D.C. and in Colorado for 13 years.

His most recent work was a survey taken the end of January, first of February of Colorado Republicans. This research was conducted in order for Republicans to have a better chance to win in the future. Among the many questions posed and comparison between primary and November opinions, the following information made sense for party strategies. He also broke down Republicans into categories – traditional Republicans, Trump Republicans and other Republicans. The problems Republicans want solved in order are: 1- Immigration (want reform), 2 – Rising cost of health care, 3- Homelessness, 4- Marijuana impact. On all-day kindergarten, 62 percent oppose and 34 percent support. Unaffiliates have these numbers flipped. The respondents’ reason Republican losses were so great in 2018 – liberal voters moving to Colorado. What should we do to move forward? Support the president and don’t compromise. Seventy-eight percent want Trump to run unopposed. He has a 90 percent job approval and 72 percent strong approval. What type of Republican do you want to support? According to the survey – 61 percent said conservative and uncompromising fighters with 33 percent responding moderate. (Even by age range.)
