This is NOT a by-nature GOP state anymore. Colorado has been Californicated
El Paso County, where I live is the bastion of conservatism in the state, which is why the candidtaes have spent more time here than in Denver. They're all banking on Colorado Springs to swing the state, which means that even Colorado Springs is in play.
I'm disappointed to hear what you're telling me here. I still have hopes for Colorado but they are diminished. Regardless I have pretty much believed the race would be over by the time the polls closed in the Great Plains states.
Time will tell. I know this much though. No matter who wins it really makes no difference. We still have to spend the next four years fighting the good fight. It will be a lot harder to do with Obama in the White House but for the sake of our heirs we'll do all we can.
That is contradictory. Colorado Springs isn't in play! CSprings is part of El Paso County and usually goes 65%-70% for Republicans. I expect that percentage range to hold in 2008.
Bob Loevy is a local college Professor of Political Science and TV analyst here in the Springs. He stated the other day that statewide, polls always underestimate Republicans by 4% every election. IOW, add 4% to the current numbers for McCain and Bob Shaffer if you want to get closer to the actual final results.
