Colorado Caucuses 2012

February 8, 2012 by staff 

Colorado Caucuses 2012, Going into the 2012 Colorado caucus on Tuesday, Mitt Romney is running ahead of rival contenders in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

According to a survey released by Public Policy Polling on Monday night, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum is running in second place behind the former Massachusetts governor. Leading up to the contest, however, relatively little polling has been conducted on the Colorado competition.

Minnesota will also hold its Republican caucus on Tuesday and Missouri will hold a non-binding primary.

HuffPost’s Mark Blumenthal explains:

The scarcity of polling owes in part to the non-binding nature of all three contests. The Missouri primary is a “beauty contest” vote. Although the precinct caucuses in Colorado and Minnesota begin the process of selecting delegates to the national Republican convention, that process has no formal connection to the “straw votes” that will be held at the precinct meetings in each state. So technically, the votes in the two caucus states that will be reported on Tuesday are also non-binding.
