If Donald Trump is going to win Colorado, he is not going to be able to do it without the state's populous suburbs. But in recent elections, those very places -- like Jefferson County, Colorado -- have leaned toward the Democratic Party.
Jefferson comprises a solid chunk of the Denver metro area. It is home to a slightly smaller Hispanic population relative to the state and a whole lot of beer. Its job picture has been looking good, and its population is relatively well-educated.
