Election 2012: Colorado President Colorado: Romney 50%, Obama 46% ^ | 10/22/2012

Posted on 10/22/2012 8:02:51 AM PDT by Snuph

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. Florida, Missouri and North Carolina have now shifted from Toss-Up to Leans Romney.

New data out of Iowa will be released at noon Eastern today.

Obama’s gun control flub in the last debate may be having an effect.

I’m glad to see Romney with a good lead in CO. If this holds, and he does indeed take Florida and Virginia, then all he needs is any one of either PA, OH, or MI, or a combination of WI and NH, WI and IO, or WI and NV.

Internals are pretty devastating for the Kenyan. The 50/46 lead could be 10+ points by election day based on the internals.

Yeah, the MSM is hoping voters missed that, but they didn’t and neither did the NRA.

I have the race at Romney 257 Obama 237.

I give VA, FL, CO, and NC to Romney. PA and MI to Obama.

That leaves Romney needing 13. Obama needing 33.

States remaining: Ohio (18), Wisconsin (10), Nevada (6), Iowa (6), New Hampshire (4).

Romney has the upper hand. He can lose Ohio and win with Wisconsin and NH. Or (he can even lose Ohio and Wisconsin) and take NV, IA, and the 1 EV out of Maine. Etc.

Obama needs both the big ones: Ohio and Wisconsin, and one other state.

Don’t count out Oregon. Latest poll is O plus 5 with a +6 Dem. We still have 2 weeks to GOTV.

Romney is up in CO by 4, has wrapped up FL, VA, and NC, nearly tied in WI and IA, competing in PA and MI, and leads nationally in both Ras (+2) and Gallup (+7) polls. And we’re supposed to believe he’s down in OH by the same amount he lost in 2008? Not a chance he’s down in OH.

This morning, I heard WSB’s Jaime Dupree (I don’t care how you spell it, it still sounds gay - he did for a long time until I guess he took man-up voice coaching)...back to the point.

I hate, absolutely hate, these damned pretentious politico reporters who keep trying to make us think they are objective, that they are ‘reasoned’ and open minded.

He won’t call a lead for Romney at all without going back to some damned other leftist poll that says contrary....He actually acts like he believes in the integrity of the political process, talks about the Obama Administration in terms of a relevant presidency....all that haughty, journalism is a noble profession crap....

Jamie is one of the reasons I quit listening to Boortz years ago.

Glad to hear it Bray!
Unless there is major funny business in Denver, CO is going Romney.

The fact that Neal Boortz hitched his wagon to supposedly “non-political” Jamie Dupree made his libertarian-conservative bonafides suspect to me.

I’ve heard that CT is now at likely Obama instead of solidly Obama.

Romney will win here with 54% - his national margin. He’s broken 50%.

CO has gone for a D only twice in the last 10 elections - Clinton in 1992 and Obama in 2008. Its normally a solid R state in presidential election years.

The state is reverting to its normal Mountain State voting historical pattern.
