What’s Behind Colorado’s Hard Left Turn?

Patrick Malone, reporter for the Fort Collins Coloradoan, just completed an analysis of the recent shifts in Colorado politics.

He made use of The Buzz to analyze the “Hard Left Turn” in the state during the last decade, from George W. Bush winning by 5 points in 2004 to Barack Obama’s 5-point win in 2012.
‘“The Democratic ideology and the liberal ideals have the advantage in Colorado right now,” said Floyd Ciruli, who has closely watched Colorado politics for more than three decades.’ (Coloradoan, 6-22-13)
