How did McCain do amongst Republicans in Colorado? There has to be a reaon why a state where there are more Republicans than Democrats has been giving Republicans problems.

87-13 among Republicans, Obama also won Independents 54-44.   A key problem for the GOP is the movement in suburban Denver.  Jefferson and Arapahoe were both strongly Republican counties not that long ago, but have swung quite a bit towards the Dems.  

Its similar to what has gone on in some of the suburban Philly counties, where you have quite a few of the old school Republicans, (well educated middle to upper middle class suburban whites) turned off by the rightward plunge of the GOP.  Combine that with the growing Hispanic population and the lack of traditionally working class Dem areas swinging the opposite way, and you have a big problem if your the GOP.

I'd still say Arapahoe is lean Republican. Jefferson is very much a swing county. Much of the county, outside of the southern part, is either Democratic or 50/50 these days.

Colorado is the next Oregon.

And I think Ohio is the next Michigan.

Colorado is a purple interior Western state. It's not the "next" anything.
