U.S. Key “Swing State’ Colorado Still Splits after Second Presidential Debate

U.S. Key “Swing State’ Colorado Still Splits after Second Presidential Debate

BOULDER, the United States - With a month to go before the U.S. election day which falls on Nov. 8, voters in Colorado, a pivotal western state in this year's chase for presidency, still splits after two rounds of presidential debates.
After Trump's lewd remarks and bragging about forcing himself on women were released Friday, Colorado's two biggest Republicans have asked him to step down, namely U.S. Senator Cory Gardener and U.S. House 6th Dist. Rep. Mike Coffman. Meanwhile, Colorado's Clinton supporters called Trump's remarks as a turning point in the election.
But Boulder's Dark Horse Bar and Grill, an oasis of conservative thought in Colorado's most liberal city, was packed with Trump loyalists during Sunday night's second round of presidential debate against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Colorado is a traditional "swing state" with the most conservative city in America, Colorado Springs, which is 120 km south of Denver and one of the most liberal cities, Boulder, located 80 km north of the state capitol.
Nancy Leong, a law professor with the University of Denver, said she knew no college professors who would vote for Trump and his sexist remarks would permanently damage his chances because women represent more than half of America's electorate.
Reaction from Utah's conservative Mormon Church over the weekend also condemned Trump, with many of its leaders urging him to withdraw as the GOP candidate.
Although many prominent western republican women pulled away from their party leader in the past 48 hours, at the Dark Horse, conservative loyalty filled the air. (Xinhua)
