"La Raza" is going to deliver for Barack. When I say "la raza," I mean my people, hispanics!!!

Go La Raza! This is one election where there is going to be a lot of minority interest. Not only AAs, but also Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans - due to Obama's mixed heritage. It also doesn't hurt that his message is on point and dubya has done his best to trash the republican party.

People love Obama and that enthusiasm is hard to quantify right now. The polls are underpolling his support right now. The massive 50 state strategy is just beginning. A great many states that are polling for mccain right now will be switched come election day. Many pundits will have egg on their faces. Of course, they won't mind, many of them are still wiping away the eggs from the primary season which was supposed to be a "close race" where Hillary had a chance to win.

I forgot to share with you something that you might not know since you are for the most part "gringos." Barack's sister, Maya, speaks Spanish fluently, yeah!!! She gave an interview all in Spanish to a very well known hispanic TV program, a sort of 60 Minutes. She looks very hispanic, and said that people always think that she is indeed hispanic by seeing her, and that she loves it!! She learned spanish in college.

What a better embassador for Barack among hispanics than his own sister who loves hispanic culture to the point of learning our language. I think that this woman will be very key for Barack among hispanics, let alone Asian americans. Her husband is chinesse-canadian or something like that. A patch-work type of family. This couldn't get more American, the real America, the melting pot.

The lead for Obama in Colorado has been rather small for the past several weeks - but steady. He has led in every poll I've seen recently. The Colorado polls have seemed a bit more steady than in say, Missouri or Iowa where there has been a bit more fluctuation.

Anyone see the new Rasmussen polls? They have Barack ahead by double digits in Iowa which is a great sign for him.

Paul:

The Presidential poll is consistent with recent polls. 538 is projecting an Obama win in CO at +2.6% and shows the picture today at +3.3%. Colorado would be a key state for Obama. Since 1992, Colorado has voted Democratic only once, that being 1992 (Clinton first term). In addition, New Mexico, adjacent to Colorado, is also leaning Democratic. If Obama wins the same states as Kerry, plus Iowa and Colorado, he has 268 electoral votes, 2 short of victory. He then needs either Ohio or New Mexico, both states which are leaning Obama right now, or Virginia, which is essentially tied. If Obama does not win Colorado, then he has to win Ohio or Virginia.

In terms of the Senate race, 538 has five current Republican Senate seats moving Democratic, including in Colorado, with probability of 83% and therefore likely Democratic, making this race a very important one on the national scene.
