The prospect of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump winning critical battleground states like Colorado is growing more difficult, according to a number of political experts.
The candidate currently trails Democratic rival Hillary Clinton by 8 points in the Centennial State, and many are saying the gap will only grow larger.
Clinton is campaigning in Denver, Colo., before she travels to Nevada for her next campaign stop.
“Colorado has a significant and growing Latino population, and Trump has done everything he possibly can to draw Latino voters into the waiting arms of Democrats,” Republican pollster Whit Ayres told Politico.
GOP strategist David Flaherty said that attracting the Hispanic vote could be a major issue for the candidate, telling The New York Times, “Trump’s a walking get-out-the-vote billboard.”
The paper reports Clinton is so confident in a win, she has started pulling television ads to allocate her resources elsewhere.
But the GOP hasn’t given up hope in the swing state just yet. Trump’s running mate Indiana Gov. Mike Pence spent Wednesday in Colorado Springs at a campaign rally.
“If you can bring 100,000 voters in Colorado who feel disaffected by both political parties, a candidate like Trump who promises to pull down the pillars might really resonate,” former state Republican Party Chairman Ryan Call told The New York Times.
