  •  Romney had very weak coattails in the state (1+ / 0-)

    if you look solely at straight ticket voting. Democrats ran significantly ahead of Obama even in the 3 safe red congressional districts and against Orrin Hatch. Same goes for the statewide elected offices where the average of the Dem vote share was higher than in 2008, though the median was lower. Still, nobody even came close to getting the same share as Romney.

    Hawaii was the same way in reverse for Obama, but in Illinois there were plenty of candidates who matched or exceeded him even in Chicagoland where he overperformed the most.

    •  Good point (0+ / 0-)

      I hadn't thought of that. Still, it's good news that we've got competent campaigners here in Utah. We at least know what to do, even if we still have very little chance of winning (except in the situations with McAleer and Seegmiller I mentioned before).
