According to an article in the Denver Post, a nationwide mock election was conducted among elementary, middle, and high school students earlier to day in order to encourage political activism throughout the country. The mock election has been conducted every election cycle since 1992 and has actually accurately predicted results nationally every time. This year, in Colorado public schools, Clinton will win the race: According to the results “Democrat Clinton won  55 percent of the popular vote in Colorado with Republican Donald Trump winning 33 percent and other candidates polling at 11 percent.”

This matches up pretty well with FiveThirtyEight analyst Nate Silver’s data on the state. Although maybe a little bit generous in votes to Clinton, most of the polls that Silver gets his information have Clinton polling in the high forties while Trump remains mostly in the mid-thirties.
