Colorado Presidential Vote Analysis
Were Colorado voters really swayed by moral values? Perhaps, but a breakdown of the Bush/Kerry numbers by county show additional trends. I've broken down the vote and provided some non-expert analysis over at 5280.
Some Boulder votes are still outstanding but with most counted, 70% went for Kerry. In Denver and Pitkin (home to Aspen), 69% went to Kerry. Kerry's biggest win was in San Miguel county (home to Telluride) where he got 72% of the vote.
My non-expert analysis:
I’d say the densely populated and higher-end resort towns went for Kerry, as did Boulder with its highly educated voters. The rural, suburban, lower-economic and military-populated counties went for Bush.
Colorado is overwhelmingly Christian state-wide, so I'll leave it to the experts to figure out how that factored in.
