The Democrats held their convention in Colorado this year. McCain, Obama, Palin, and Biden have campaigned extensively throughout the state. Thus, this is a perfect time for an “I told you so” regarding the Democratic plan to split Colorado’s electoral votes back in 2004. Thankfully, the voters rejected the idiotic scheme.
I denounced the measure, Amendment 36, in a first and second article. I summarized, “The proposal hopes to divide Colorado’s electoral votes for president according to the popular vote. Currently, state law specifies that all electoral votes go to the candidate who wins the most popular votes.”
Had the measure passed, this year Colorado would have been mostly a fly-over state. Instead, we’re at the center of the action.
