May 24th

When is the Colorado Senate Race going to happen?

The Colorado General election will be held on November 8th, 2022 to elect the representative of Colorado State. The current incumbent Michael Bennet, a Democrat has held this seat since 2009 and is running for a third term after winning in both 2010 and 2016 with a plurality of the vote.

The prognosticators are divided on how competitive this race really is: prognosticators like Cook Political Report rates the race as a “Solid Democrat” while Sabato’s Crystal Ball rates it “Likely Democrat”, and RCP rates it as “Lean Democrat”, ranging from Republicans having no chance of winning the election to having a decent chance but still being underdogs.

No polls have been conducted in either primary yet. The Democratic primary is not competitive so do not expect any new polls here. The GOP primary remains interesting as endorsements and google search interest to not point to a clear favorite so new polls could help us understand how the primary is coming together.

Colorado Senate Race 2022 Polls: Racial Demographics of the Voting Age Population (VAP)

Demographic
Proportion
White-American
68.9%
Hispanic-American
19.1%
African-American
4.8%
Asian-American
4.6%
Native-American
3.4%

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.
