The election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States was widely viewed as a referendum on both his temperament and his ability to lead the country.
His defeat by Hillary Clinton in November of last year was the most lopsided election in American history, and the electoral college result was a blow to the Democratic Party and its progressive leadership.
This article will examine some of the election results in the United State as a whole and compare them to the results of Colorado in 2020.
Read More Colorado voted for the second youngest president on November 7th, 2018, after a state election board decision was upheld on November 4th.
This was the second-most lopsidest election in the country’s history, trailing only California, which had its first-ever presidential election in 2020, on November 2nd, 2019.
The result of the 2020 Colorado election was the first time that a state or local election board had ever declared a president elected by a national popular vote.
The board ruled on November 5th, 2020 that the presidential election should be decided by the popular vote, with Colorado following suit on November 6th, and on November 8th, with the results announced on November 11th, a day after Trump’s victory.
Colorado voters were asked to cast their ballots for the two presidential candidates that made up the party-line vote: Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein.
This is an example of a popular vote election: a state official conducts a popular election with absentee ballots, but only the people who are allowed to vote in that election are eligible to cast ballots in the election, and all absentee ballots are counted.
This election also saw a high turnout, with a record number of people voting in Colorado’s November 6, 2020 presidential election, which saw both the largest turnout in the state’s history and the highest number of registered voters.
On November 7, 2020, the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office announced the results for the Colorado Presidential Primary: Democrat Hillary Clinton, Republican Donald Trump, Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Jill Stein, and Libertarian candidate Evan McMullin.
Clinton was the winner, with 46.4% of the popular votes.
The election was widely seen as a repudiation of the Republican Party’s presidential candidate Donald Trump and its presumptive nominee, Governor Gary Johnson.
Trump had been the clear front-runner for the Democratic nomination, with his victory in the Republican primary garnering support from voters nationwide.
In addition, both candidates had received significant support from Democrats in their respective congressional districts.
Clinton, who had a narrow lead over Trump in the national polls, saw her vote share decrease from her previous low of 38.5% in early November to 21.9% by the time the election was called.
In Colorado, Clinton received 61.7% of votes, with Johnson receiving 23.1% and Stein receiving 1.9%.
The race was tied at the time of the vote count, with 1,074,664 ballots cast.
Trump’s defeat of Clinton in the presidential race was the highest vote total for a Republican candidate in Colorado since 1972, when former Governor John Anderson defeated former Governor Richard Nixon in the race for the Republican nomination.
In contrast, Trump won only 21% of registered Colorado voters, less than a third of the overall voter turnout in that state during the same period.
While the outcome of this election was significant for many in the liberal-leaning Colorado, it was particularly notable for those who were not eligible to vote, who are also known to be disproportionately African American and Latino, and who are less likely to be employed, and to have health insurance.
According to The American Sociological Association, about 14% of eligible Colorado voters are currently unemployed.
This may account for a portion of the low turnout that occurred in Colorado.
In a state where only 9% of people are employed, this may account in part for the low participation rate in Colorado in the 2020 election.
A high level of participation, coupled with an increasingly conservative voting bloc, is likely a factor in the high levels of voter turnout that the election received.
According to the Colorado secretary of state’s office, Colorado has an estimated turnout rate of about 66.4%, and it has a relatively high percentage of non-voters, with 62.9%, of voters who did not live in the area, and 59.2% of voters without a driver’s license or identification card.
Although the electoral vote margin was a large number, it is worth noting that the outcome in Colorado was a very close election, with Trump losing by less than 1.6 percentage points.
It is difficult to draw any conclusions about the overall turnout and the impact of these numbers, since they are not yet available in the data set.
The number of votes cast is also likely to have contributed to the high turnout.
In the early states, turnout often
