Mountain West Has Battlegrounds in Presidential Race

Mitt Romney wins 30 of the Mountain West’s 50 electoral votes using the most recent Real Clear Politics polling average for the nine states.  Barack Obama wins 20 and, as of August 10, is awarded Colorado (9), Nevada (6) and New Mexico (5).  The race remains volatile.  The latest Colorado poll put race at one point in favor of Obama.

But, Obama sweeps the 74 electoral votes on the Pacific Coast, with the mother lode of 55 in California, to win the West 94 to 30 in total.
