    Neither district is red.

    Morse's district has a (by population) small rural component, but it contains Manitou Springs and downtown Colorado Springs. Significant blueness.

    Giron's district is clearly not rural. As I stated, it contains all of Pueblo (the bluest of the blue), and Pueblo West (someone red, but, by population, smaller). Anything outside of those two areas is sparsely populated.

        If you know anyone in those districts, and you can influence them to vote, it's vital.

        The campaigns need to change their advertising and campaigning focus to turnout, because, as the CO poll showed, even people who don't like the gun laws don't want to see them recalled.

        So they need to stop trying to convince people that their gun votes were right, and stop trying to sell themselves with their other votes, and stop attacking their Republican opponents, and focus on getting as many voters to the polls as they possibly can.

        If I was in their campaign, I'd be running commercials to show people how easy it is, and where they can go, and when, to vote.
