Swing state: Yes. In the 2004 election, George W. Bush defeated John Kerry by only 4.7% in popular votes. A Sept. 24, CNN/Time poll showed the electorate split 51% supporting Sen. Barack Obama and 47% support Sen. John McCain
How Obama can win: Use his appeal to mobilize young people to vote. Colorado’s abundant, well-educated, under-30 set support him but has a poor track record of showing up at the polls. Also, connect with Latino voters, whose turnout rates are typically below that of other groups. In Colorado, Latinos comprise 20% of voters, a considerably larger minority voting bloc than African Americans.
