Although technically, if you were to move to Wyoming, your vote wouldn't count either, as there would be so many other people voting Republican (for national races at least) that it wouldn't matter whether or not you voted.

The Electoral College is so stupid. It's not fair to Mississippi Democrats or Massachusetts Republicans for their vote to essentially not count just because of where they happen to live. In a democracy, the victor should be the candidate who receives the most votes, not the candidate who has the greatest geographical distribution of voters which is essentially what the Electoral College measures. Sorry, a bit of tangent.

CO is conservative to a very large extent. Some exceptions are mentioned above. Mountain communities Democratic, anything in Douglas County is Republican, and all of Littleton. And right wing means very right wing here. I was a middle of the road type in Georgia, and now I would be classed as a liberal in CO. I have voted almost evenly (Repub vs Dem) in national elections over the last 30 years.
Some years ago I was hacked off that Coor's had dumped a bunch of chemicals in the Clear Creek river, and my friends at work all said I must be a tree hugging liberal! I was confused, to say the least....and I am still opposed to pouring crap in our rivers. Go figure! I have the problem of being a fiscal conservative and wanting to safe guard our natural resources. A conservator takes care of all his resources. Very polarized here - I turn off the TV for 3 months leading up to elections.
Still a great place to live.

That is funny how you said for me to live in Littleton when it is not democratic. I need to live in a liberal/moderate not extreme right wing area.

I am not clear when I said for you to move to Littleton, but my misunderstanding! City of Denver is Democratic, Aurora is swinging that way, Boulder/Nederland, and almost all Mtn communities. All of Douglas County is strongly republican. Recently the biggest change in fund raising for Greenwood Village is democratic. I think Littleton was close to 65/35, repub-dem in the last election. A middle of the road type from CA will be a liberal here.

Well I spend a week there at Thanksgiving for the last ten years, and I love it. Nice mix of ranch types and ski/tourists and usual ski town stuff, but it is a real town. I don't know what you do for work and that may be a problem. Usually only jobs are service type.

Moderator cut: off topic

As far as Colorado goes my guess is that Denver is going to be Democratic while some of the hinterlands - far away from everything vote GOP.
