With polls showing Colorado and its nine electoral votes a toss-up between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, a former Democratic chairman made headlines last week when he told the Associated Press that the Centennial State ‚??is the worst [swing] state‚?Ě for the Democratic president.
Floyd Ciruli, a former chairman of the state Democratic Party and independent pollster said that the president, ‚??[S]hould be doing better and he isn‚??t. ‚??It‚??s the worst [swing] state of the bunch for him; isn‚??t that amazing? It‚??s the place we thought he could use as a model.‚?Ě
Ciruli‚??s withering assessment comes two years after Colorado defied the national Republican trend by electing Democrats John Hickenlooper and Michael Bennet as governor and U.S. senator respectively.
