Remove about 4 points of liberal bias and that means Romney is actually leading by 4. Romney and Ryan look calm and confident and are likely to win the electoral vote by a substantial margin.

Should be an interesting week for me, I will be working for the Republican campaign in the North Denver/Boulder area to ask people who are for Romney or who associate themselves Conservative and/or Republican to register to vote if they already are not. I will standing outside pre-approved business 8 to 10 hours per day. I have a feeling I will be getting in a few verbal battles with the occasional radical libtard. I have my camera if anything interesting happens.

From the article:

Romney's support is strongest among whites, military families, gun owners, voters in Colorado Springs and opponents of abortion. Obama's support is strongest among women, Hispanics, voters in the metro area, voters who earn less than $40,000 a year and supporters of abortion access.

In other words... Traditional Americans prefer Romney, and the others want to be ruled by a king.

"Romney's support is strongest among whites, ..."
And, Obama's support is strongest among blacks; just ask Samuel L. Jackson. Interestingly, this fishwrap unexpectedly left out that demographic. I'm shocked, I tell ya.

Splits are good—34-34-— but it is a mix of adults, registered, and likely without telling you what. % is what.

Colorado is a flaming liberal “Blue State”, so even they must be finally catching on!

I think Ryan is remarkably confident. Saw him today and he looked focused and unshaken. What a GREAT man to have as second slot to President, UNLIKE BIDEN THE BUFFOON.

"supporters of abortion access."

Is THIS the latest edict from the MSM style guide? I'm stunned they didn't use the de rigeur title "opponents of abortion rights" to describe pro-lifers.

I live in Colorado now (and did in 2008). Enthusiasm for Obama is WAY down, LOTS of 2008 Obama voters say they will vote “for the other guy” or stay home. I’d say Romney by 4% is pretty reasonable.

I had three Obama voters in my family. All express deep disappointment, One will “hold his nose” and vote for Romney, one will definitely not vote for Obama again, the other is very dispirited but can’t bring himself to vote for Romney, talks a lot about finding a 3rd Party candidate.

Actually not, but it IS a very divided state, with Boulder and Denver (lib) against the rest of the state, which is very highly conservative (think Wyoming South), except for the Ski-Bunny towns, which are fiscally conservative but kinda like like abortion, dope and rainbows.

No it isn't. It has been trending left as Kalifornia refugees moved here and the left sunk tons of money here the last few election cycles.

I agree, I live in the Denver area and it is a whole new ballgame this time around. Less Obama bumper stickers, less Obama yard signs, Less Hope and changey.

Obama won Colorado by 9% in 2008. For Romney to be tied with him in this state is very good news. Frankly, this, plus Romney only being back by 2% in Michigan suggests to me that there is a nationwide movement away from Obama.

My husband and I have a biz in Arvada and travel to Denver every week and then back to OKC for long weekend. Our residence is in north Denver. Way different this time. In 2008, the library near our office had every car in the employee parking lot with obimbo bumper stickers. Recently saw ONE, count it, ONE employee car with the sticker taped to back window. LOL. Easier to get off, I guess.

Colorado has been too close to call for weeks now. The way the headline is being gamed, it makes Obama look like he just made a move in the state. In fact, he didn’t.

I’ve never seen such blatant propaganda. Obama’s team is flagging, and yet he is being portrayed as if he’s making a move.

Well he is. This is a perfect storm building against him. He’s moving alright, and the date is January 20th.

The poll was conducted for The Post by the firm SurveyUSA. Pollsters contacted 750 Colorado adults — 676 of whom are registered voters — between Sunday and Wednesday. Of those, 615 were seen as likely voters.

So 135 of the 750 polled (18%) should NOT have been included in the poll if they were truly interested in accuracy.

That the media is still playing with "adults" and "registered voters" this late in the game instead of only "likely voters" tells me they can't like the results they are getting when they just poll likely voters and have to fudge the numbers either to get the statistical horse race that sells more subscriptions or simply to inflate the numbers for their beloved Obama.

The internal polls of the candidates, without the bs added, must be wildly different considering the behavior of the two candidates. One seems very desperate and the other seems very confident.

A poll of 750 “adults” overestimates the slugs who are mostly Democrats.

Okay, I have to tell someone this. I just got a call from a “720” area code (Denver) saying they are with Organizing for America requesting I vote for obimbo. I could not stop laughing and asked why they were calling me (registered R for many years). He said they were calling people in swing states (interesting). I explained thru laughing tears that I was definitely not voting for his guy. He was nice, but I just kept laughing. I expect they will take me off their list. I have done 72 hour calls many times. Wow, big mistake to get the wrong party voter.

I guess it is desperate times and desperate measures mode for the dems.
