Moving away from Washington DC, I’ll be going down to the ground tomorrow onwards. I’m looking forward to seeing Denver, Colorado for the first time. This will involve meeting with those organising voter canvassing, state level campaign strategists, youth groups, the league of women voters, and hopefully go to a political rally.
Here is a profile of the Colorado state, one of the battleground states:
Mr. Bush won this state by less than 5 points in 2004 and Democrats are making a big push here this time. Look no further than Denver, where the Democrats held their national convention. It seems to be paying off: Polls show Mr. Obama taking a lead here and Republicans are growing increasingly glum about holding the state.
All polls show that Obama will likely win, but things may shift slightly over the final days. The Latin American vote will be important in this state.
