Colorado - Battleground State

Colorado the Swing State.
Colorado became a state weeks before the ultra close election of 1876.  Republican Rutherford B. Hayes won the election by a single electoral vote.  The new state of Colorado cast their three votes for Hayes.

People in Colorado Swing Both Ways
  • So to speak.

By Gary;

Basically no poll has any real meaning until the first Presidential debate has been held.  For good or bad, years of campaigning comes down to the two candidates performing for the public on live TV like trained animals in some Roman Empire circus. 

In no way is this insane system what the Founding Fathers wanted for the selection of a President.

But getting to the point, Mitt Romney needs Colorado badly if he is to prevent four more years of Socialist rule from the White House, and I am not sure Colorado will go GOP.  The looter and moocher class will keep voting for free bread and circuses from the Democrats as long as someone else pays the bill.

Colorado will be a tough nut to crack:

  • Romney has been behind in Colorado polls all of 2012.
  • Comrade Obama carried Colorado with 53% in 2008.
  • The state has a Democrat Governor and two Democrat Senators.
  • The Democrats control the State Senate and the GOP won the lower house by only one seat.
  • 4 of 7 Congressmen are Republicans.

In past elections there has been a late shift of voters creating GOP wins for President.  We will all know in a few weeks.  God help what is left of the Republic if Comrade Obama wins another term.

2010  -  A totally disorganized Republican Party.
In a hot Republican year, a screwed up GOP managed to get beaten by the Constitution Party in the race for governor.
