A physical map of Colorado

Colorado is a state in the Western United States. It has incredibly beautiful scenery, with the Rocky Mountains making up over half of the state. The capital is Denver, an awesome city located between the mountains and the Great Plains.

Colorado is a liberal state. It has voted Democrat in every Presidential Election since 2008. It wasn't always liberal, though. Colorado was previously a swing state in elections. It had both liberal and conservative elements back then, and there are still some traces of conservatives there to this day. But with its growing population, Colorado is becoming more liberal and awesome.

Colorado is also notable for being the first state to legalize recreational Cannabis along with Washington.


Politics

Colorado has a Republican and Democratic Senator each, they are Republican Cory Gardner (soon to be replaced by centrist liberal John Hickenlooper) and Democrat Michael Bennet.

2016 U.S. Presidential Election

Primaries

In the 2016 Democratic Primary they voted for Bernie Sanders with 41 pledged delegates (and only 26 to Hillary Hillary Clinton). In the Republican primary, they didn't do quite so well, the electors were led to vote for Ted Cruz at 34 delegates, while only giving Trump 1 delegate.

General Election

In the 2016 general election, Colorado voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump by 4.9 points, nearing the 5 point mark. Hillary Clinton won Denver and some snowy mountain counties. While Donald Trump won the neocon farmers in east Colorado and won the cities of Colorado Springs and Pueblo.

2020 U.S. Presidential Election

In the 2020 general election, Joe Biden won the state with 55.4% of the vote compared to Donald Trump's 41.9%, the highest victory margin for a Democratic candidate since Lyndon Johnson in 1964. As a result of Biden's win, Colorado officially became a Democratic stronghold instead of a swing state, making it an even more awesome state.
