She needs to not run in 2016, getting too old and needs to enjoy life.  Wait, Democrats said the same thing about McCain in 2008.

So why is it that Clinton seems comparatively weak in Colorado?

As Democrats, we feel the need to tell John McCain and everyone else how to live their lives. As a libertarian, you should stay out of Hillary Clinton's business.

Makes much more sense relative to  national polls than the previous Colorado polls.

My guess would be due to the latte liberals in the Denver suburbs, but I'm not an expert on Colorado politics. She lost 2-to-1 in the primary, er, caucus here in 2008, despite the fact that she did receive the endorsement of Denver Rep. Diana DeGette.

It was the GOP and Jerry Fallwell who made far worse accusations about McCain than Dems. Christian Right helped, in 2000, derail his prez, by accusing him in SC of fathering an illegitimate child. JD Hayworth primaried him in his previous 2010 Senate bid. Justifying it by saying MCCain is too old.

Everyone knows Bill will be assisting his wife in bring prez. Even though they won't say it, it will be a co-prez.

Looks like people are forgetting how pissed they were about the environmental laws and guns laws and seem to be OK with the laws of marijuana and gay rights.

I detect a lot of salt in all your posts.

C'mon you're from here. You've seen the polling I hope: the environmental laws help us. Guns was a nightmare though too. One polls showed that Coloradans were in favor of "stricter gun laws" but opposed to the laws that were passed, i.e. the loosest gun restrictions possible.

Let's be honest, CO is like California 2. Repubs might even take back the State Leg this year, but by 2020 will be extinct barring a massive move to the left.

To answer questions about why Hillary is weak here, I would say two reasons, 1. A great deal of independents here actually do take their time to research candidates--we are one of the most educated states--and vote based on their ideas. So, there are legitimately undecided people, go figure, two and a half years out from the election. 2. There is a large "granola" population who finds Hillary to be way too conservative (I count myself among them). These people have punked Republicans by making them believe Hickenlooper could be beaten by some loser like Both Ways Bob or Tancracist because they drove down his approval ratings. Don't be fooled, if Hillary is leading the GOP in Ohio, she will win CO. This "libertarian" label applied to Colorado is just from out of staters cowboy fantasies. We do indeed live in the 21st century like everyone else.

Colorado has a loud libertarian subculture; between it and the Hard Right ranch and oil people (the High Plains of Colorado are much like western Kansas and the Texas Panhandle in their politics) are the first people to vote. But they have limited numbers.

Latte liberals? The difference between conservative and liberal wins in Colorado politics is the large Hispanic (largely Mexican-American) vote.

There's a little bit of everything out here. Republicans rely on the yeomen of Greeley and the High Dessert and the Religious Right in Colorado Springs. Democrats rely on the academic communities in Northern Colorado, the ski slopes and the minority voters rely on the big city, Pueblo and the Southern Mountains.  The swing voters are in the 'burbs and it generally is based on environmental protection vs. energy development.
