OCTOBER 31: Colorado GOPís Widening Early Vote

Welcome to the Halloween edition of the Colorado Peak Politics ballot return report. It’s no trick, another day of ballot returns show Colorado Republicans are being treated to another day of positive numbers, extending their lead from 2.8% yesterday to 3.2% today.

It looks like the enthusiasm on the Republican side is swamping whatever advantage the much-ballyhooed Obama ground game has built.

According to a Colorado Peak Politics source, ballot returns as of this fine morning are:

Total Votes: 1,076,103

R – 416,681 (38.7%)

D – 381,811 (35.5%)

U – 268,132 (25.0%)

In 2008, Democrats got out to an early lead, with a 40-33 advantage after the first week, but Republicans eventually closed the gap, slightly outnumbering ballots returned when it was all said and done.

This time around, Republicans have taken the early lead and appear to be building on that advantage as time goes on.

I think I am close to calling CO alongwith NC. Soon VA and FL. Let's tweet this to amy walter - she was posting numbers up until yesterday when it turned in the republicans' favor. Let's see if she'll post today.

Looks good. CO is a an even bigger must win than Ohio, IMO.

When you consider how the I’s break combined with the number of dems crossing over RR may carry CO by 9-10 points.
That would be consistent with winning Ohio by 4, FL by 6, and VA by 7-8.
We may do even better.
I’m quite optimistic this year.

I voted yesterday. I usually like to vote on election day, but I just couldn’t wait this time. I wanted this one in the bank, no matter what may happen.
