Colorado Governor Election 2022 Polls: Racial Demographics of the Voting Age Population (VAP)


The data is from the 2020 census. It shows an increasingly diversifying state with a booming Hispanic population, mimicking other Western states that are rapidly gaining population. The Hispanic population in the state is extremely diverse.

The urban Latinos, especially in the north of the state around Denver are solidly Democratic. The ones in the south of the state are not solely south American immigrants but rather Spanish ethnics who have lived in the state for a longer time. Thus they are a swing group and the working-class ethnics have swung to the GOP party, especially in places like Pueblo.

Their swing has been masked by the large swings in the white college-educated population in Denver and its suburbs which has powered its staggering leftward shift from a swing state to a state Biden won by 13. Boulder, one of the most educated counties in the state exemplifies this,

Biden won over 75% of the vote here. Even the once Bastian of the GOP, Colorado Springs is swinging to the left. It used to be one of the most conservative urban areas in the country but GOP is starting to lose its iron grip on it.

Touristy areas like winter resorts in Aspen have also swung left. This has made winning the state extremely hard – its nationwide approach of running large margins with non-college whites doesn’t work here, the state simply lacks enough of them for the party to be viable.
