The latest polling of likely voters by Rasmussen Reports shows that, for the first time, Mitt Romney has hit 50 percent support in Colorado — a state that Barack Obama won by 9 percentage points (54 to 45 percent) in 2008.  Romney now leads Obama by 4 percentage points in the Centennial State — 50 to 46 percent.  He leads by 8 points (49 to 41 percent) among independents.  


Colorado is a rather crucial and somewhat underrated state on the electoral map.  If Romney wins in Ohio, then Colorado might be sufficient to put him over the top (and would be if he also wins in Florida and Virginia).  If Romney doesn’t win in Ohio, then Colorado would likely be essential to keep him in serious contention.
