DENVER (AP) -- Republicans are taking a big lead in early voting in Colorado.

A report from the Secretary of State on Friday showed that 104,000 more Republicans than Democrats had cast their ballots as the state conducts it's frist major mail-in election.

Voters can also drop off ballots at polling stations and register through Election Day.

Republicans usually lead in early returns in Colorado but rarely by such hefty margins.

Democrats and some observers expect that lead to shrink by Election Day.

But more than half the ballots are in and the filing suggests how difficult it might be for Democrats such as Sen. Mark Udall to survive a year in which Republicans are highly motivated.

Notice the cheerleading tone in the "final analysis" aka closing sentence? Nothing like a little pushin' n' pulling here n' there: Right?

Yeah, RIGHT for sure, but certainly far from best, optimal, etc.

And to hear on the radio several times over the past weekend that younger voters are seriously thinking of voting Republican.

Thanks to Fox, thanks to dark money and thanks to so many damn Democrats who sat on their duffs four years ago; thus giving the GOP a four year head start back 9n 2016.

Sigh, nice to see Obama's got his act in high gear ... finally. Not a little late again, Mr. President? Bend over folks, here comes another "shellacking."

We Know How Far Trump Will Go - How Far Will Republicans Go?

Thom plus logo Colonel Vindman's testimony pretty much proves that Trump was trying to shake down Ukraine for information on Biden, and that the Republicans are doing everything they can to cover up this extortion attempt.
