    Almost every day, we've been seeing unbelievable crowds for Romney and miniscule ones for Obama. 30,000 for Romney, 2800 for Obama. We're told that crowd size is not scientific evidence of how the vote will turn out and it's only "anecdotal". Doesn't mean much. We're told it's the polls that tell the real story and it's close, very close. But I can't be the only one who senses that something, way beyond what the polls are saying, is happening. Look at the size of this Colorado crowd. I think this thing could be a blowout for Romney/Ryan. I think MSDNC,...

    Denver, Colo., Nov 1, 2012 / 04:03 am (CNA).- The Obama campaign attempted to schedule a rally-like event on a Catholic university campus in the key swing state of Colorado before settling on a dialogue with a co-chair of Catholics for Obama. “Their original intent was to have more of a rally element to it,” said Paul Alexander, director of Regis University's Institute for the Common Good, which hosted the event. “We just felt we couldn’t do a rally, but we felt a healthy dialogue among Catholics was important.” About 45 people attended the Oct. 25 dialogue and small group...

    No one doubts Michael Barone's credentials; the guy has established himself as the pre-eminent political nuts and bolts expert in the country. If you watch Barone on election night, you will realize he knows the politics of America down to the key individual counties in each state. His encyclopedic mind recognizes when a state's vote is trending toward one candidate or another early on, and while he is carefully not to predict a winner, he leaves the viewer with little doubt as to who is in trouble and who isn't. But it makes me wonder when he reels off a...

    Predictions from someone on the inside: Virginia: Romney by about 60-70 thousand votes.   Pennsylvania: Romney by upwards of 200 thousand votes.North Carolina: Romney.  Early call.Florida: Romney by about 100,000 votes.Wisconsin: Romney by 30,000 votes.Iowa: Romney by maybe 5-10 thousand votes.Colorado: Romney by upwards of a 100,000 votes.Oregon: Romney, undecideds will break for the governor.  This will be a late night shocker that will give the governor the ability to call this election a true mandate. This guy on the inside is predicting the governor circling about 300 electoral votes on Tuesday. Does anyone know which, if any, of theses states are having their votes counted in Spain...
  • Republicans ahead of Dems in Colorado early voting, Obama surrogates still confident

    Westword ^ | Nov 2 2012 | Sam Levin
    Data released today from the Secretary of State's office shows that in Colorado's early voting period, more Republicans have cast ballots than Democrats. The GOP says there's no getting around the numbers -- the facts show they will take Colorado. But Obama's surrogates here have a different spin: The state will still go blue, but it will be closer than 2008.

    Stand up for your beliefs, right? If you are a conservative in a right-of-center state like Colorado, that should be simple enough. "The truth will make you free," as it is written in the Bible. Of course, in politics, that is a lot easier said than done, as Joe Coors, Republican candidate for Congress in Colorado's 7th congressional district, is now finding out.

    Obama: I'm Bill Clinton, he's George W.By DONOVAN SLACK | 11/1/12 10:52 PM EDT President Obama didn't mention George W. Bush by name, but he didn't have to. At a campaign rally in Boulder, Colo., on Thursday, he sought to meld GOP challenger Mitt Romney with the former president. And himself with the more popular former president Bill Clinton. Obama outlined his owns beliefs about shared sacrifice, a strong middle class, affordable health care and a dignified retirement, then added, "For eight years we actually had a president who shared those beliefs and his name was Bill Clinton."

    While all national attention is focused — indeed riveted — on the seven to nine swing or battleground states, a major shift is taking place in the rest of the country: Voters are turning off Obama and onto Romney. In the forty states where the Obama campaign has not spread toxic negative ads against Romney, the Republican is gaining by leaps and bounds and will likely carry a bunch of “non-swing” normally blue states. Specifically, Romney is now three points ahead in Pennsylvania, one point behind in Michigan, and only two points behind in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Together, these four...

    Physicians Who Use Marijuana are 'Unsafe to Practice' MONTREAL, Canada — Physicians who legally use medical marijuana to treat their own debilitating conditions such as chronic pain or nausea are considered unsafe to practice medicine in the state of Colorado until such time that they no longer need the treatment, according to a policy from the Colorado Physician Health Program. "We took a conservative stance," Doris Gundersen, MD, Medical Director of the Colorado Physician Health Program, told Medscape Medical News after her presentation here at the International Conference on Physician Health (ICPH). "We don't want to deny them treatment...but until they no...

    With Election Day still more than a week away, more than 600,000 Colorado voters have already cast their ballots, the Colorado Secretary of State's Office reported this morning. Secretary of State Scott Gessler's staff said that based on reports from Colorado's county clerks, 626,097 voters had returned their completed mail ballots or had voted in person at their county's designated early-voting polling places as of Friday morning. On a statewide basis, that included ballots cast by: 244,263 Republicans; 225,850 Democrats; 149,877 voters unaffiliated with any political party; 3,258 Libertarians; 1,159 Green Party members; 1,035 American Constitution Party Members; and 655...
  • Early Vote in Ohio, Iowa, Colorado, New Hampshire and Wisconsin

    It's well known that Ohio is the key, and that Ohio state polls seem not to follow the national trend (Romney should be leading by at least 3-4, no polls showing him better than tie instead). RCP average in 2008 missed the real result in many states by several points (2.1 in Ohio, 2.5 in Indiana, 3 in Pennsylvania, 3.5 in Colorado, 5 in Arizona e 6 in Nevada) so maybe it's just due to the margin of error but it's worrying anyway. Anyway if Romney loses Ohio he has to win Colorado, Iowa, Wisconsin and New Hampshire (if he...

    President Obama again on Friday defended his administration's handling of the attack that killed four Americans in Libya, and said he's not holding back information ahead of Election Day. "The election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened," Obama said in an interview with KUSA, the NBC affiliate in Denver. "Nobody wants to find out more what happened than I do. But we want to make sure we get it right, particularly because I've made a commitment to the families impacted as well as the American people, we're...

Austin Reed Sigg, 17, was arrested and charged with two counts of first degree murder and kidnapping. Sigg is a student at Arapahoe Community College, according to his arrest report. "Law enforcement received the major break in the Jessica Ridgeway investigation they have been hoping for," the Westminster Police said today. "Late Tuesday evening police received a call that led them to a home near the Ketner Lake Open Space."

    I'm not sure that there is anything that is directly noteworthy about a massive crowd for a major-party candidate at the end of the presidential cycle. Both candidates will have at least 60 million people voting for them in this election, which means there are going to be lots of people who will show up for these kinds of events. But will they climb hills and mountains and trek out to the middle of nowhere to do it? The Denver Post put together this visually stunning video of Mitt Romney's event at Red Rocks, which also shows the difficulties that...

    Southern Political Report ^ | October 23, 2012 | Hastings Wyman
    Mitt Romney is now leading in every state in today’s Solid South, including the three – Florida, North Carolina and Virginia – that Barack Obama won in 2008 and where his campaign has expended considerable muscle, money and candidate time. Moreover, the nationwide polls also show a marked shift to Romney since the first debate. The President, however, still maintains leads in most of the battleground states. In Florida, with a substantial 29 electoral votes, virtually all polls now give Romney the lead, with the Real Clear Politics (RCP) average showing a 2.1 point lead for the Republican challenger. The...
