Colorado

Long known as a swing state, Colorado has settled into the blue column for the past three presidential elections. When Barack Obama carried Colorado in 2008 and 2012, he was only the third Democrat to win the state since the Eisenhower era. The others were Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964 and Bill Clinton in 1992.
