Republicans have 2 point advantage in voters in CO (compared to -7 disadvantage in 2008 on same day) and ^ | 10/25/12 |

With early voting underway here in Colorado, momentum remains on Governor Romney’s side as Republican turnout continues to outpace the Democrats by more than 5,000 registered voters. Whereas at this same point in 2008, Democrats were outpacing Republicans in turnout by seven percent, today we have a 2 percent lead. Voters in Colorado know that President Obama has not fulfilled the promises that he made to them in 2008, and the only new plan he has laid out is to raise taxes in a second term. Coloradans can’t afford four more years of the last four years.

Oct. 23, 2012 •39 percent Republican

•37 percent Democrat

•24 percent Unaffiliated/Other

Oct. 23, 2008 •33 percent Republican

•40 percent Democrat

•27 percent Unaffiliated/Other

Cut through the election fog. Hard data again favorable. Again, for the unitiated, these are not actual VOTES. These are WHO is VOTING. Understand that please before I see some comment about how dare they count votes already before we voted.

I just talked with the secretary of our County Judge in our northeastern Texas county, and, during the conversation, she excitedly said.

"Our early voting turnout these first three days is phenomenal! we have recorded several times as many votes as we did in the same period in 2008!"

I didn't come right out and ask, but I know her conservative leanings, and her glee speaks volumes as to the ratio of R/D... :-)
