0 View Comments Jared Polis holds a 13-point lead over Cary Kennedy in the four-candidate Democratic gubernatorial primary, according to a new survey released Thursday by Magellan Strategies, though nearly one in four voters remain undecided with just weeks to go before ballots are counted. The survey of more than 500 likely voters in the Democratic primary shows Polis, a five-term congressman from Boulder, atop the field with 31 percent.
