Adams County Republicans Signal Change at Caucus

The Colorado Times Recorder took a look at some straw poll results from recent Republican caucuses, and the numbers are quite fascinating. We were particularly interested in the straw poll results from Adams County, which has traditionally been one of the swingier counties in Colorado.

Obviously, the big surprise is that Steve Barlock has the clear lead among Adams County Republicans in the race for Governor. Barlock is the heavy favorite (33%) among Republican candidates who are seeking access to the Primary ballot via the state assembly, followed by Greg Lopez (18%). Attorney General Cynthia Coffman checks in with a meager 4% of support among Republican caucus-goers.

The Coffman name in general is not especially well-liked according to these figures. Congressman Mike Coffman is a distant second to challenger Roger Edwards in this straw poll. These numbers are probably not indicative of the mood of all Republican caucus-goers, but they may not be too far off the mark; remember that in 2016, an unknown Republican named Kyle Bradell came this close to getting his name on the Primary ballot by winning 26.1% of delegates at the GOP CD-6 assembly.


On their Facebook page, the Adams County Republicans also included “votes” from online polls that were available on the County GOP website, but we’re not including those numbers here because…well, they’re online polls.

    Kudos to Powerful Pair on some nice numbers in Adams! Here's hoping you take nomination and then lose to Jason Crow.

    I wonder if Mike is the albatross around Cynthia, or is it the other way around?

    Yeegads — it’s too bad sexual harasser Steve Lebsock-(R) is such an unmitigated douche, . . .

    . . . he could’ve swept that motley field.

    Who is Steve?

    “I am the only Candidate for Governor who has supported our President since the very beginning and the only who will support his agenda 100%!!!”

    Did the Colorado Democrats ever tally the straw polls they did at the caucuses for Attorney General, treasurer and SOS?

    The Democrats have a rule that if you try to caucus and get less than 10% that you can't petition onto the ballot. Do the Republicans have a similar rule?
