how much of Hatch's money came from out of state?

A democrat for Senator? The poll obviously only got a sample from Salt Lake City.

Lost, good question.

How much of Hatch's money came from corporations?

@carabaoU: It was a statewide poll. Remember, Matheson isn't just another Democrat. Especially in southern Utah.

With all that cash, Hatch won't have a problem running as an independent after he loses to Chaffetz at convention.

Which will open the door for Matheson to become Utah's next Senator.

We need Hatch around a little while longer...we see the pull of a junior junior Senator in Lee, why burden ourselves with two of them?

Mixed emotions... I would love to reign in and give a reality check to the tea-party hardliners by Hatch beating Chaffetz. At the same time, I think Hatch has done his time, should move on gracefully with honor.

Matheson... hmmm.... I don't know the chap well enough. But even if he won this seat, what are the odds he could keep it in 6 years when all is said and done. Not likely. Being a Republican is a religious statement in Utah, and I don't see that changing yet for another 10-20 years.

Could be an interesting political season in Utah next year. If I were a presidential candidate, I wouldn't waste one penny in Utah, because that vote is a foregone conclusion, without even knowing who is on the ticket. This senate race is the only thing that will make Utah worth watching.

Why can't Hatch have some personal honor and give the Republicans a chance to find a GOOD candidate to replace him instead of handing his seat over to the democrats?

Bronx, NY

it looks like being targeted by the tea party is working out pretty well for Hatch.
