I am a very politically inclined guy, as I often participate in politics and sometimes even give my free time to help a good candidate.

How is CO politically? I know it was Bush in 2004, but it seems very mixed. FL is more stable, it is pretty conservative, as low taxes = a LOT of jobs!!

How is Fort Collins? Is it conservative? Is the mayor rep or dem?

How about Larimer county?

What about CO springs?

Lots of replies, ideas, and points of view welcome!!

Default Who will probably win?

As for Governor, is Beauprez doing good or is it the other guy doing better?

How do you think you will vote?

I thought Owens did an awesome job, he seems very popular with everyone I talk to in CO.

Default CO Politics

Well, Colorado Springs is the Conservative center of the state. Part of this probably comes from the large evangelical presence in the city. There are over 400 churches and over 150 para-church organizations based in the city as well as the Nazarene Bible College and Focus on the Family. Besides this, with The Air Force Academy, Fort Carson, Peterson AFB, and Cheyenne Mountain in the city you have a large national security minded (also spelled c-o-n-s-e-r-v-a-t-i-v-e) presence.

Much of the state is more liberal.

I mostly agree with what cluckk said.
However, while Denver is liberal, Colorado in general has traditionally been a red state.
I never cared for Owens, and it looks like Beauprez might be in trouble these days.

How about the Fort Collins area? Is it conservative or liberal?

How about Larimer county?

How are Fort Collins and Larimer county politically?

Reply said CO is more liberal, so how come gun laws are so friendly, trying to protect the law-abiding guy vs. the crakchead?

CO feels kind of conservative, despite some liberalism at the colleges and universities...... am I wrong?

I guess in my opinion, Colorado is more conservative. Boulder is very liberal. Denver I would say is 1/2 and 1/2. BASHEP
