    A review of voter registration data for ten counties in Colorado details a pattern of voter bloat inflating registration rolls to numbers larger than the total voting age population. Using publicly available voter data and comparing it to U.S. Census records reveals the ten counties having a total registration ranging between 104 to 140 percent of the respective populations. Counties such as Gilpin and Hinsdale have 110 percent of their populations registered to vote. Gilpin County has a total population of 5,441 with 17.4% of the population below the voting age, making the highest possible number of registered voters 4,494....

    President Barack Obama has cancelled his rally that was scheduled for Tuesday morning in Colorado Springs to monitor Hurricane Sandy, according to a White House press release. Obama will return to Washington to continue to monitor the hurricane following a campaign event in Ohio on Monday. A campaign event that was scheduled in Northern Virginia on Monday was also cancelled because of the storm. According to a statement made by the White House Saturday night, “The President is being regularly updated on the storm and ongoing preparations, and he has directed his team to continue to bring all available resources...

    DENVER — Republicans appear to be winning the voter-turnout battle so far in the crucial swing state of Colorado, according to figures released Friday by the state Secretary of State. A breakdown of voter turnout by party shows that Republicans have cast 244,263 votes, or 39 percent of the total, while 225,850 Democrats have voted, representing 36 percent. Another 149,877 unaffiliated votes have also cast ballots for 23.9 percent of the total. -snip- Four years ago, Colorado Democrats had the early-voting advantage.

    President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are running neck-and-neck in Nevada and Colorado, showing that both candidates still have a path to victory in the Electoral College that runs through the West, new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist Poll surveys show. The surveys found that Mr. Romney had gained ground against the president in Colorado over the past month, moving from a five-point deficit in mid-September to a tie, with each candidate drawing 48% support among likely voters.

  • Election 2012: Colorado President Colorado: Romney 50%, Obama 46%

    itt Romney has now reached the 50% mark for the first time in Colorado and leads President Obama by four in the critical swing state. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Colorado Voters finds Romney with 50% support to Obama’s 46%. Two percent (2%) like some other candidate, and one percent (1%) remains undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Still, Colorado remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. But Colorado is the fourth swing state that has moved in Romney’s direction in the past week.

    Poll: Obama’s Lead Falls To 3 In Colorado TOM KLUDT OCTOBER 18, 2012 President Barack Obama’s lead in Colorado is down to 3, according to a survey from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling released Thursday. The poll shows Obama leading Romney among likely voters in the state 50 percent to 47 percent. That’s the president’s smallest lead in PPP’s polling of the Centennial State all year and a dip from the 6-point lead he held prior to the first presidential debate in Denver earlier this month. Along with Obama’s lead being sliced in half, Romney’s personal popularity among Colorado voters has...
  • Bishop to Biden: Don't take communion in Colorado Springs

    10/15/2012 5:35:23 PM PDT · by Nachum · 49 replies ^ | 10/15/12 | Gunner Stanson
    The Catholic Diocese of Colorado Springs has thrown down the guantlet to Vice President Joe Biden -- don't come here and expect to partake in Holy Communion. It seems Bishop Michael Sheridan, the person in charge of Catholics in Colorado Springs, doesn't approve of Biden's stance on abortion. The Bishop, following church doctrine, is opposed to abortion. Biden, meanwhile, has said he doesn't support the practice, but doesn't believe it should be illegal. In 2007 Sheridan wrote: "Any Catholic politicians who advocate for abortion, for illicit stem cell research or for any form of euthanasia ipso facto place themselves outside...

    If businessman Coors has a good night on Nov. 6, so will Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, likely not only in Colorado but nationwide. Colorado is looking like a state that is the national average, perhaps a tick or two rightward, according to Sean Trende, a savvy number-cruncher and Yale-trained political scientist for the website RealClearPolitics. “So if Romney is winning Colorado, it probably means he is headed for a decent night,” Trende said of the relatively new electoral trend of a Western state signaling a presidential win. If Romney wins here comfortably, that probably means a national win on...

    WE DIDN’T endorse Barack Obama’s presidential candidacy four years ago, but after he was elected we congratulated him on his victory and expressed our desire that his presidency would be successful. But soon after his inauguration, it became clear that his talk of “post-partisanship” and governmental transparency was just that: talk. He, along with then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, rammed through Obamacare with almost no input from congressional Republicans. Recall Ms. Pelosi’s comment that “We have to pass this so you can see what’s in it.”

    LAIRD, Colo. – This small Great Plains town is the terminus of a journey across the Rocky Mountain State on U.S. 34, greeting travelers from Nebraska and bidding farewell to Coloradoans. On either side of the highway stand two slightly oversized “Romney for President” signs. In the distance, in a town boasting 47 people, a stone octagonal house sits forlornly, its former glory faded by neglect and the elements. This highway and U.S. 36, passing through Jefferson and Arapahoe counties, give way to a state not at all like the one often envisioned, politically or economically, from afar. The 479...

    On the heels of last week's presidential debate, Mitt Romney has emerged with a one-point edge over President Obama in Colorado and has cut the president's lead in half in Wisconsin, according to a new Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times poll. In Wisconsin, where Mr. Obama led Romney by six percent last month, the president now holds just a three-point advantage, with 50 percent to Romney's 47 percent support. Last month, the president led Romney 51 to 45 percent. In Colorado, the two remain locked in a dead heat, with Romney leading Mr. Obama 48 percent to 47 percent, within...

    Despite all the hand-wringing about Mitt Romney’s campaign (see, e.g., here, here, and here), Romney is slightly ahead of President Barack Obama in Colorado, a key battleground state, according to the latest Rasmussen poll. The article on Rasmussen’s website is incorrectly dated August 7, 2012. The poll was carried out yesterday and the results were published today. Six percent of survey respondents were undecided. Typically in a race against an incumbent, undecided voters break toward the challenger. The Rasmussen poll follows a Denver post poll last week showing Obama 1 point ahead of Romney. Colorado has 9 electoral votes.

    LAKEWOOD, Colo--Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan took the stage before 2,600 supporters at Lakewood High School Tuesday to promote Mitt Romney's energy proposals, but he had another agenda. Interlaced throughout his speech were subtle, but clear, references to Ryan's common-man appeal. Over the course of his nearly 20-minute address, Ryan discussed working at McDonald's, shelling out more than $100 at the pump to fill up his gas tank, camping and fishing with his family, climbing the Colorado "14'ers"--a reference to the state's mountain peaks above 14,000 feet--and that he recently taught his boys "how to cook a meal on...

    Paul Ryan came and spoke today.... To say the crowd received Ryan with enthusiasm would be an understatement. In fact, his reception became literally thunderous, as many started stamping or pounding on the gym benches, and they repeated this several times when Ryan made strong points..... Ryan was all substance, avoiding cheap campaign shots yet repeatedly bringing the audience to their feet by making clear, powerful points about energy independence, the need to deregulate, fiscal soundness, the difference between a culture of self-reliance and one of dependence, and the doctrines of Natural Law and the Declaration of Independence. That’s right,...

We’ve got too many good jobs we’ve got to create. We’ve got too many teachers we still need to hire. We’ve got too many schools we need to rebuild.” He also emphasized his belief in the renewable energy industry in Colorado, the need to support college students, and to disengage the military from foreign conflicts.

A new swing states poll by Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News has Mr. Obama trailing Mitt Romney by five percentage points in Colorado. Yet this is the state that voted for Obama by nearly nine points in 2008 and that earlier polls have indicated favors him again this year. Is Obama losing his touch with Colorado voters? Not necessarily. Taken together with other polls from the past few days, the results are all over the place. One, from Public Policy Polling, has Obama...

    Presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney has pulled ahead to a rather stunning 5-point lead over President Barack Obama in the swing state of Colorado, according to a new Quinnipiac/CBS/New York Times poll. The poll comes as Obama heads to Colorado on Wednesday to hold two campaign events. It suggests he has some work to do to convince voters that he should be re-elected. And the most glaring evidence of that is this damning number: 51 percent of Colorado voters think his economic policies will never improve the economy. That means there's little hope that Obama will ever turn around the...

    Sandra Fluke will introduce President Obama at a campaign event in Denver on Wednesday, a further sign that the incumbent's re-election team is putting a heavy emphasis on women's issues. Fluke, a Georgetown student, testified before Congress earlier this year in favor of health insurance granting coverage of contraception. Her stance was cheered by women's rights advocates and many on the left -- but denounced by conservative outlets, including the influential radio host. Limbaugh slurred the 31-year-old student as a "slut" and a "prostitute," creating a frenzy that led some of his advertisers to abandon him. While Limbaugh later apologized,...
