Previewing the Colorado Primary Elections - The Rundown 6/26/18

Tuesday is the deadline for Colorado's all-mail voting. (All-mail as far as delivery of ballots; voters who haven't voted yet should turn them in today at a ballot box in your county. You can find locations on the right side of this page: https://www.sos.state.co.us/pubs/elections/vote/VoterHome.html?menuheaders=5

As of Monday morning, slightly more Democrats had voted than Republicans. This isn't a general election so that doesn't translate into predicting outcomes today, but it might be an indication of voter enthusiasm for November. It's also interesting to see fairly substantial participation by unaffiliated voters in the first election in which they are allowed to participate. See the data here: http://www.sos.state.co.us/pubs/newsRoom/pressReleases/2018/20180625BallotsReceivedByAgePartyGender.pdf

Even the NY Times is wondering how far left Colorado will go in November. Frankly, I hope that Jared Polis (who, for full disclosure, is a friend of mine) is the Democratic nominee because I believe he can be beaten. His views are far too radical, but Colorado is a state that seems to get bluer with each passing month.

I don't usually watch Trump rallies, and when I do it's rarely for more than 5 minutes. But I decided to watch the president's entire rally in South Carolina on Monday night. The audience was enthralled (as they usually are), and he gave a better and slightly less rambling speech than usual. More importantly, except for trade, I think he's on the same policy page with the majority of the American people. 

 

A bunch of tariff stuff:
