Polis’ Economy Puts Colorado in Bottom 5 States for Personal Income Growth in 2020
February 25, 2021
|Greenwood Village, CO. – Governor Polis’ economic record continues to get more notorious by the day, and unfortunately for Coloradans it’s not for good things. |
According to a recent economic analysis done by Pew Research, Colorado is one of just five states with less than 3% growth in personal income over the past year.
Meanwhile, other Western states like Arizona and Utah are actually leading the nation in increases.
|Personal Income Growth in Nearby States: |
Arizona = 8.5%
Utah = 7.8%
Idaho = 6.3%
Montana = 6.1%
Nevada = 5.8%
New Mexico = 5.4%
❌ Colorado = 2.7%
|Under Governor Polis and Colorado Democrat leadership, Colorado ranked only above Wyoming and North Dakota in personal income growth in 2020.|
What was the average across all 50 states? It was 5.9%, more than double Colorado’s measly 2.7%.
|This isn’t the only terrible economic news Colorado has encountered under Democrat control.|
Colorado currently has the fourth highest unemployment rate in the nation, as Polis’ reign has ensured that Colorado “paid a heavier price economically” than other states in the fight against COVID-19.
|Bottom Line: Coloradans deserve better than the failed leadership delivered by Polis, Bennet, and the Democrats in Denver. ###|
