Republicans have regained their status as the largest voting bloc in Colorado, a battleground state for the 2008 presidential election.

Minnesota keeps straddling the line between red and blue. I think it's in large part because of farmers and their families who think they need to vote Democrat (the official party name here is the Democratic Farmer-Laborer party - the DFL).

If we could pack Boulder off to Berkeley and get all the illegal aliens out of Denver (and a lot of them do vote, don't kid yourself), we'd be a normal Red state.

whats wrong with boulder? i lived there for like 20 years and nothing terrible happened to me. places like boulder exist just like heavily conservative places exist. i mean, people love to surround themselves with like minded individuals, thats why sites like the Democratic Underground and this website exist.

Colorado had a large influx of Californians in the late 90's when that state's economy was starting to head south and this one's was booming. I credit that fact as a major reason for the shift. I still think it's likely that Colorado will go blue in the next election, though there may be an outside chance.

Haha, "If only we got rid of these people in our state we'd be fine!"
