Report: Dem-Leaning Colorado Counties Could Go GOP ^ | 6 Nov 2012 | John Nolte

Posted on 11/06/2012 2:21:03 PM PST by forbushalltheway

A GOP source sent along some early turnout numbers from the swing state of Colorado. These numbers are a couple of hours old. But I want to pass along as much actual data as I can.

Adams County (Lean D County) – Strong Republican turnout based on morning data – on track to win since first time in 1984. Absentee/Early Vote margins will be hard for Democrats to overcome today. Right now it’s a virtual tie. Election Day thus far is 3696 D, 3549 R

Arapahoe (Swing County) – Election Day turnout this morning: 4,860 Democrat & 5,271 Republican. Over 83% of the vote was Absentee/Early Vote: 75,653 Democrat & 75,812 Republican.

Jefferson County (Swing County) – Absentee/Early Vote: 78,738 Democrat & 85,378 Republican. No election day numbers.

Again, no one is trying to spin anything here, including my source. These are numbers from this morning in crucial Colorado counties. All this is is a snapshot.

Colorado will go R later tonight.

It has NEVER been a true swing state. Its gone D only twice in the past ten presidential elections - Clinton in 1992 and Obama in 2008.

This is a Red Mountain State.

My wife and I voted this AM in Mesa County. Long lines.
This county is Republican there is no reason to think that will change.

If Adams goes Republican it will be a huge day for us in Colorado. Hopefully that will have downballot legs.

That would be stunning about Adams County; it has shown no trend to the right (or even center), voting in 2010 for the two Rat statewide candidates and, in the Senate race, by an even larger margin to the left than the state as a whole.

If Mitt wins Adams, he wins CO easily.

Although the demographics are changing somewhat, Adams County has historically been a blue collar suburb and solid Democrat country. This could be hugh!

Romney hasn't been here in days. I think they've known for a while it's over in Colorado. Last time Barry was here he went to Boulder, just trying to rally his base.
