The Denver Post Sunday reports that in both those cities, 17 percent classified themselves as "very religious."
The Provo-Orem, Utah, area ranked the highest with 77 percent.
According to the poll, 40 percent of Americans surveyed rate themselves as "very religious," while in Colorado the statewide average is 34 percent.
Other Colorado cities polled by Gallup include Greeley (36 percent), Colorado Springs (35 percent), and Denver (32 percent).
