Trump tries to expand November map

Published: Sunday, September 18, 2016 @ 12:17 PM

From Denver, Colorado -

With fresh polls showing new strength for Donald Trump in important swing states, Trump used an airport rally in Colorado Springs on Saturday to see if he can generate some momentum in this important state, as Republicans try to force Democrats to defend even more election real estate in November.

"We're up four points in Colorado," Trump declared to supporters at an airport hangar, with Trump's own plane serving as the backdrop.

"We are going to win Colorado, we’re going to win the White House," Trump said to cheers.

"It's going to be a victory for the people, it's going to be a victory for you," he added.

Trump only started running some television ads in Colorado earlier this month, as up until the most recent poll in this state, Hillary Clinton had been in a comfortable spot:

Democrats have pulled their advertising here in the race for President - the only TV ad I saw in four days here was for the incumbent Senator, Michael Bennet, who is up for re-election.

But that new poll showing Trump ahead comes as other polls have shown the same - a burst of momentum for Trump in states that he would have to win in November.

Trump's message was not overly specific for Colorado, but his familiar themes can certainly find supporters in the Centennial State.

"My economic agenda can be summed up in these three very beautiful words: Jobs, jobs, jobs," Trump said, as he hit his refrains on jobs, trade and more.

"I think we're going to win."

The state of Colorado though is like other swing states in one way - as Trump has struggled at times with Republicans who are not sold on him as their party's nominee for President.

For example, Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) went so far as to put out an ad in August that had him take on Trump directly.

"Honestly, I don't care for him much," Coffman says in the spot, before adding, "I certainly don't trust Hillary."

Unlike my recent visit to Florida, I did not see any Trump bumper stickers and signs in Colorado.

Then again, as one of my friends swiftly noted - we didn't see any Hillary Clinton stickers or signs either.
