Colorado will go Republican and I don't think the state will be essential to winning, nice to have but not essential.

I agree. It's going to be a landslide, 5 points nationally for Romney. These polls are rubish.

The talk on Wednesday will be why the "polls" showed it was so close, when reality it wasn't

Each candidate will get 46% of the vote either way. The other 8%, those who are not single issue voters, will go 2 to 1 for Romney.

That's my prediction

The discussion is sort of pointless. Coloradans have been known for many decades to be "ticket-splitters" at the polling booth. There have been relatively few times in the last 75 years that Colorado has not had split delegations in the US Senate and US House, and similarly had split Houses in the State Legislature and Governorship. Historically, Colorado is a state with a majority of moderate voters. That has muddied in the last few years as both political parties in Colorado have had their respective caucus and nominating processes dominated by the radical wings of the parties, but most of the rank-and-file Colorado Democrats and Republicans remain centrist. Sadly, that also means that most Colorado voters don't have a good choice for President this year, just what each voter perceives as the lesser of two evils.

"Pointless" yet fun to see what everyone thinks. And, I agree with your centrist comment. I've run into that a lot in my short time in CO, which I find a huge relief.

At this time we have 24 votes cast; 12 think COLO will go DEM, 12 think COLO will go GOP; showing that the state is rather purple and subject to be a swing state in many elections.

Meanwhile, here are the latest poll figures that show many states are on the fence, including COLO. The election is essentially within the margin of error, so there could be surprises all over the map.

One thing is for sure, I'll be watching the returns with a trusty bottle of wine to celebrate the right to vote.

New Hampshire 49.9 47.9 Obama +2.0
Colorado 48.8 47.3 Obama +1.5
Iowa 48.7 46.3 Obama +2.4
Nevada 50.2 47.4 Obama +2.8
Wisconsin 50.4 46.2 Obama +4.2
Pennsylvania 49.4 45.6 Obama +3.8
Michigan 49.5 45.5 Obama +4.0
Minnesota 49.6 44.4 Obama +5.2

I like Larry Sabato's site. He is 99% accurate in national political predictions, but although he is calling the election for Obama, this time he clearly doesn't feel secure about the outcome.
