More than half the voters in Colorado had already submitted their ballots prior to today. Here are the early-vote ballot counts as of 10:10 am MT, according to Colorado’s Secretary of State:

Democrats: 653,450 (34%)

Republicans: 688,303 (36%)

Unaffiliated: 547,437 (29%)

A very good sign for Republicans, who usually perform better on Election Day than in early voting.

    Woohoo!!! I would say if we can keep it below D+5 we have this whole thing in the bag.

    Beautiful! If we can take CO plus OH or PA its over. Not sure how,CNN figures North Carolina or Virgina will fall to Obama.

    Now Im thinking FL, VA, NH, OH, CO, NC, and MI are ours!!!! Plus WI and maybe PA. Long lines benefit us. Democrats only stand in lines for handouts.

      Republicans are up in Early Voting in Pennsylvania as well (although, it has to be noted that very few people early vote in that state) The actual numbers:

      Party Reg
      Dem 42.0%
      Rep 46.9%
      Other 11.2%

        Wow…R+4? Youch.

    • Brandon Billings

      I love how I got 2 thumbs down. Funny how Dems hate when they know its true.

      My hope Romney wins and Dems leave the country…..If we leave the country who will pay the taxes?

        Maybe the producers should go on strike!!!

    • jimdep

      Good one. LOL!

    • Ms.Bohmont

      While that’s probably true… I worry that we will be defeated by the ones lacking a moral compass…the ones that vote early, and vote OFTEN.

    As it should be.

  • RDPortland

    Excellent news. If the rest of the state votes as expected, that’s a great sign.

    I think many more states are to come, but winning Colorado would immediately invalidate about half of the left’s predictions. Assuming FL, VA, and NC vote as they should, that’ll leave some very simple math for Romney to clinch.

  • ChicksLoveRight

    Take everything in positive stride BUT STILL GO OUT AND VOTE! The other party’s voters are doing at least twice a day!!

  • Brian Roastbeef

    This sounds good but I have to ask anybody in the know:
    CO early voting in 2008 was D+1.5. So here it’s R+2, a swing of 3.5

    Does that mean that we’re in for D+3 or D+4 turnout nationally? That could be a very long night…

    BTW, This year I am holding all those libs who threaten to leave the country if Republicans win, to their word. PLEASE be my guest – Air France seems to leave from major airports on daily basis!!

    • Elilla Shadowheart

      France is good, just make sure they don’t come to Canada. We have enough whiny liberals up here to deal with as it is.

      • ChicksLoveRight

        LOL! I would never wish liberals on to our friendly neighbor! France may be the best place for them – 75% tax- paradise for libs right!!!
