INTERESTING, THIS BODES WELL FOR DONALD TRUMP … COULD HE REALLY FLIP COLORADO?
As reported at The Denver Post, Republicans took the lead in early voting in Colorado at the end of the day Friday and held the advantage through the weekend. According to the data released Monday, registered Republicans cast 652,380 ballots compared to 645,020 registered Democrats, a 7,360 vote GOP advantage. Now of course not all Republicans and Democrats are going to vote along party affiliation; however, this is an interesting number seeing that the Democrats have always had a greater get out the vote campaign. This does show voter enthusiasm. As stated at the Washington Examiner, the polls indicated that Colorado was a blue leaning state, but could Colorado, that went to Obama twice, be flipped to the GOP?
Trump needs to flip blue states red in order to gain 270 electoral votes. Is Colorado one of those possible states?
Republicans took the lead in early voting in Colorado at the end of the day Friday and held the advantage through the weekend despite robust Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts.
The latest early voting numbers released Monday morning show registered Republicans cast 652,380 ballots compared to 645,020 registered Democrats — a 7,360 vote GOP advantage. The breakdown looks like this: 35.2 percent Republican, 34.8 percent Democrat and 28.5 percent unaffiliated.
It’s worth noting that not all Republicans are voting for GOP nominee Donald Trump — just as not all Democrats are supporting party nominee Hillary Clinton. But the early voting is a potential sign of party organization and voter enthusiasm.
ITS STILL A LONG SHOT, BUT THERE IS MUCH MORE OF A SHOT TODAY THAN THERE WAS 2 WEEKS AGO …
CNN is reporting that there are several ways that Donald Trump could reach the magical number of 270 electoral votes to win the presidency. Two weeks ago there was seemingly no chance that Trump could win. Then came the reports of the insane Obamacare premium increases and then came the news that the FBI was reopening the Hillary Clinton private server/email investigation as emails pertaining to the case were found on the laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner, under investigation for sexting with a minor. Then the added investigation of the Clinton Foundation. The polls are trending toward Donald Trump, however, is it too little, too late? We shall see this Tuesday.
Donald Trump’s path to 270 electoral votes remains precarious — but with some breaks, he can get there.
Trump’s campaign has made clear exactly what its targets are. It is spending $25 million on TV ads in the final week of the campaign in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Virginia, Nevada and New Hampshire.
Those ad buys are based on the assumption that Trump doesn’t need extra help to keep Arizona, Georgia, Utah, Texas or any other traditionally red state in the Republican column Trump starts with four must-wins: Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and Iowa.
Those — plus making sure he doesn’t surrender other typically Republican states, and winning the one electoral vote that can come from Maine’s Second Congressional District — get Trump to 260 electoral votes. (read more)
DONALD TRUMP, THE BOY WHO WHINED WOLF …
There is no doubt that the mood of the country is against establishment government and that is especially the case where Republicans are against the establishment GOP politicians. Thus the rise of outside candidates like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz on the Republican side and Bernie Sanders for the Democrats. However, Trumps latest whine that he was screwed in Colorado and it was unfair is tiresome and old. If Trump wins, everything is golden, if he loses, a travesty has taken place. Now Trump is claiming the process is stacked against him. Really? Truth be known, the GOP set up the primaries and caucuses to benefit the front-runner.
If Trump does not understand the delegate process, who is going to explain the electoral college to him?
Let’s get a couple things correct, Trump lost in Colorado because he failed miserably on following the rules of how tat state’s delegate process works. Donald, the rules are the rules. But I guess the rules don’t apply to Donald Trump. Wow, just what we need, another president like Obama who thinks the rules don’t apply to them. My personal opinion with Trump is that he has no idea what the delegate process is and has no idea that it is different from state to state. I think Trump actually believed that every state has a vote like a general election. Welcome to the Republic that is the United States from its founding. Trump was supposed to know the rules when he decided to run. No one just changed the rules for these state delegate processes just to screw over The Donald. Really Mr. Trump, get over your self. Trump said during a town hall with CNN, “We’re really way up in votes in votes, in terms of the voters. But the Colorado thing was very, very unfair.” And I am sorry to say to all the Trump supporters and mis-guided Conservatives who support Trump, he is beginning to sound like a whining liberal.
Donald Trump said Tuesday night that the political system is “stacked against me,” and accused the Republican Party of conspiring to stop him from clinching the party’s nomination.
At a special CNN town hall in New York City ahead of next Tuesday’s crucial New York primary, Trump said: “I know the rules very well, but I know it’s stacked against me by the establishment.”
His comments elicited a tough response from Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who tweeted: “Nomination process known for a year + beyond. It’s the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it. Complaints now? Give us all a break.”
The feud between Trump and rival Ted Cruz engulfed the RNC Tuesday night, after the GOP presidential front-runner at CNN’s town hall blasted “unfair” results in Colorado. He was swept there in the delegate hunt by Cruz at a party convention this weekend. A similar outcome emerged from Louisiana, where he won the primary but Cruz is seeking to sway delegates.
What I find interesting is Donald Trump, the Art of the Deal, proclaims to be such a shrewd business man and able to close big deals was ill-prepared for Colorado and its delegate process. When he got his hat handed to him by Cruz in a big way, Trump did not take it like a man, he whined, blamed others and called the system unfair. I really have to wonder whether this guy has the make up to be president.
Cooper pointed out that Cruz had invested a lot of time and effort in Colorado “going out, reaching out to people who wanted to be delegates, to run the process.”
“I mean, it was a whole electoral process to get delegates,” Cooper said.
But Trump wouldn’t budge, repeating his argument that the rules were simply stacked against him. He further said he would have won Colorado had the rules not been changed last year to the current system.
“You disagree with the process as it was in Colorado,” Cooper said. “But you had months to prepare.”
The CNN anchor continued:
Your critics say it says something about your leadership ability — for somebody who touts himself as somebody who’s an organizational genius, who’s created this amazing business organization, that you couldn’t create an organization on the ground that could beat Ted Cruz’s organization.
Trump again responded by touting his overall status at the Republican frontrunner.
“Well, if my organization’s not so good, how come I’ve won many more states than him?” he said.
