Colorado President and Senate

Barack Obama 47
John McCain 43

Mark Udall 47
Bob Schaffer 38

Barack Obama, on the strength of the Hispanic vote, is leading in Colorado. The state has a small black population, and John McCain leads 46-45 among white voters. Obama's 58-34 lead among the state's growing Hispanic population gives him the advantage overall.

In 2004 exit polls showed the Hispanic vote in the state to be about 8% but it is believed that will increase to the low teens for this year. The larger the percentage of the electorate they comprise in Colorado, the more likely Obama is to take the state.

McCain is doing slightly better keeping Republicans in his column (84-11) than Obama is doing keeping Democrats in his (77-15). Obama enjoys a 50-30 advantage with independents.

In the race for the state's open US Senate seat, Democrat Mark Udall continues to show a solid advantage.

Hmmm... seems McCain needs to turn out the male vote. If they are only 45% of voters then there's no way he'll take the state.
