Making Sense of Colorado’s Purple Politics

November 21, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Survey after survey reveals that many Coloradans find the U.S. government too big, too wasteful and too intrusive. Yet Colorado is arguably one of the most federally subsidized states in the Union, with forests, national parks, military bases and research labs enjoying government largesse. Dr. Thomas Cronin of Colorado College, author of Colorado Politics and Policy, shows how the state—in many ways a template of the deeply contrary politics of the nation—puts political power into the hands of an ever more polarized electorate. Learn about Colorado’s major election trends and public policy challenges, and this distinctively purple state’s unique political history.
