GOP wins EV turnout in CO

posted at 1:48 pm on November 6, 2012 by

That’s the report from the New York Times’ Jack Healy, based on a release this morning from the Secretary of State:

  • GOP: 688,503
  • Dem: 653,450
  • UAF (independents): 547,437

This morning, a false report from Ohio came from Gannett, but this one looks properly sourced.

FWIW, I’m watching Intrade. CO is getting heavy action back and forth.

The numbers there are bound to keep swinging and swinging, as the bettors are desperately trying to recoup whatever money they can.

Nate Silver had CO going to Obama 80-20% over Romney..

Silver also awards virginia and Florida to BO (although Florida is very close in his model)

I think the vets and active military guys will not like the Benghazi saga they see and will keep both for Romney.

Very interesting, D-34.5/R-36.4/I-28.9; This appears to be a little different than the D+6 and D+11 polls. As it stands now this is a R-+1.

Early numbers from FL (Pasco County) suggest a significant turnout advantage (including early votes) for Republicans at R+5 over their

And it’s not a tiny county, it has over 300,000 registered voters.

FL won’t be close.

Should say “over their registration advantage”.

In ohter words;

This county has a registration composition of 38% R and 34% D; Rs are currently making up 43% of the total vote (D still at 34%).

Huge turnout advantage for Republicans.

Republicans always win the Election Day vote here in Colorado; expect that to be turnout figure to be R+2 or higher when all is done.

This is an important point: Colorado is the ONLY state in the union with an even PVI of Zero (Cook Partisan Voting Index).

Meaning that the result in CO is likely a identical match of the national popular vote.

Think about that for a second…

Norwegian, I’m in Colorado too and I think we are definitely going red this year. Hope you’re right about what it indicates for the country. Thank goodness polls in the east close shortly. I can’t take this much longer.

Exactly! Even if it’s “only” a 51-48 win CO, we’re talking 51-48 nationwide. And what too few in the media seem to remember these days: Ohio is R+1. 51-48 in CO translates to 52-47 there. Battle lines then drawn in IA, WI, PA, NH and Romney’s number appears to be 281-305.
