Democrats Panic as Colorado Slips Away to Donald Trump…
Democrats are beginning to panic as they watch Colorado slide away from Hillary Clinton.
Hillary was ahead by double digits in Colorado last month.
The latest polling has Trump up by four points.
Colorado was moved from “likely blue state” to “toss up” this week.
Polls are showing Donald Trump gaining on Hillary Clinton in Colorado, even as team Clinton thought the Centennial State was wrapped up. Democrats now worry that mail-in voting and lack of enthusiasm among progressives could be hurting Clinton in Colorado.
Even Hillary’s internal polling is showing the race tightening and outside surveys tend to agree; Trump is on the rise in Colorado despite spending little time or money there.
Aside from funding two dozen offices and paying up to 200 staffers, team Clinton stopped putting campaign money into Colorado as far back as the beginning of August, imagining that Colorado was firmly in the Clinton camp. But the new polling is shaking Democrats’ self-assuredness, the Washington Post says.
