Any word on Colorado polls and/or early voting?
Rich Lowry on the Corner is saying that McCain’s giving up on Colorado. I’m in Texas, but I’ve always viewed Colorado as a leans-right State, and something in me refuses to believe that Colorado is a definite loss at this point. Anybody have any info?

ATTN: COLORADO REDSTATERS & ANYONE W/FRIENDS & FAMILY HERE
If you know friends and family here, tell them to vote early. I don’t know how to post a video here, but there is a report on a Fox station predicting Colorado to be the “Florida” of this election. Mine and my husband’s personal experience this week proves this to be true — there are problems. When I went to vote they told me my | Read More »
This one’s for John
John Elway was the master of the comeback in his playing days. He had an amazing 47 of them, accounting for about 1/3 of his total wins. The Broncos were never out of a game with #7 at quarterback. The Broncos are a way of life there, and after back to back Championships, John Elway is the most beloved person in all of Colorado. He | Read More »
Liberals Against Free Speech
When Sarah Palin spoke in Grand Junction, Colorado the other day, a group of protesters tried to block her motorcade. Here’s a pretty pathetic video they put up, hoping to catch an example of the police abusing them. That effort is utterly wasted, as the police handle themselves appropriately and with class throughout — including at the end, when the nearest police officer says ‘thank | Read More »
Did you hear?
John Zogby this morning has issued his daily tracking poll and it shows a 10 point Obama advantage nationwide. No way! If anyone had any doubt about the accuracy of the polls — the more I hear about a 10 or 11 or 12 point lead nationwide for The One, the more I discount all polls. (I am reminded that CBS News in the days | Read More »
Eight States to Victory
At this point, there are really no more than eight states that are going to matter, based on their battleground status and their electoral votes. These are the states we should be primarily focused on, over the next few weeks, and these are the states that McCain should be focused on, to varying degrees. The states are in three categories: Must Have, Nice to Have, | Read More »
Have the social conservatives quit?
I have to conclude that the social conservatives have quit. Politically, that is, for the 2008 election. Is that right? Am I missing something? Here’s why I say that. 1) Colorado—home of Focus on the Family—appears to be heading Democrat this year. That leads me to presume one of two things: a) The social conservatives in Colorado lack the strength to swing the state to | Read More »
I Hope This Gets Circulation All Across The State Of Colorado
In a confidential internal memorandum obtained by Face The State (PDF), the Colorado Democracy Alliance outlines a roster of “operatives” who worked for Democratic victory in the 2006 general election. The document outlines specific tasks for various members of the state’s liberal infrastructure, including a campaign to “educate the idiots,” assigned to the state’s AFL-CIO union. Among the operation’s intended targets: “minorities, GED’s, drop-outs.” Individuals | Read More »
Disdain, thy name is Democrat
UPDATE: See 29Victor’s blog for another take on this important story. His was up early this morning, but I missed it before I posted mine. How often we are reminded that it is those in the Democrat Party that care about women, minorities, and children, and those of us in the Republican Party are intolerant, bigoted, chauvinistic, child-haters. Those of us that have been around | Read More »
Educate the Idiots.
Face the State, which refers to itself as “the ‘go-to’ news resource for Coloradans interested in state and local politics,” has obtained a confidential memo from the Colorado Democracy Alliance (a Colorado 527 group) which contains both a list of their operatives and the tasks assigned to them. The list of operatives includes the Colorado House Speaker Andrew Romanoff and Gov. Bill Ritter’s press aide, | Read More »

The continuing resolution which came to the Senate from the House yesterday had all oil exploration | Read More »
ELECTION PROJECTION 9/24: Still a Tie, Obama gaining
Obama had a surge in the national polls last week, and the state polls now follow. He has expanded his leads in the swing states of Colorado and Wisconsin, and gauged a bit into McCain’s leads in Florida, Nevada and Ohio. Obama-leading state polls have outnumbered McCain-leading polls nearly 2 to 1 in the last forty-eight hours…strongly suggesting Obama has fully regained the momentum back | Read More »
ELECTION PROJECTION 9/19: MCCAIN 265 OBAMA 273
Colorado flips back to Obama, giving him the lead once again (and following the national polls giving him a boost since the Wall Street meltdown a few days ago).Obama has also strengthened in Washington,New Mexico, Florida, Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan. McCain has strenghtened in Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Virginia. Current momentum is towards Obama, but that could subside with the improving market news and | Read More »
