    Esquire I agree with what you have said and thank you for making me laugh tonight.

    Cats: Realcourage DOES "get it". S/he is absolutely accurate and correct in what s/he says. You apparently are the one who doesn't get it.

    Lee will not be a good representative for Utah. He is not a Constitutional scholar (he has, at best, a superficial knowledge of the document, BUT does know how to use it as a tool when representing a client). He will NOT work for the benefit of Utah's citizens and the citizens of the United States -- he will just work for his own political and personal interests. He will be toxic to the state and the country. We deserve better.

    To Pam Dale -- I'm adamantly opposed to Mike Lee, but I'm not on the left. I'm a true conservative (not a right-winger). As a law school graduate, I can tell you that Lee isn't close to being a Constitutional scholar. He doesn't represent the values of the people of Utah, unless you're saying that they are right wing radical extremists.

    Yes, Lee will probably receive the most votes. That does not bode well for Utah and the United States.
    We deserve better than Lee.

    This election belongs to Mike Lee. He has devoted his life to this run for US Senator. He is a Constitutional Scholar, and listening to what the majority of Utahans want right now, it is his particular experience and expertise. Listening to disgruntled folks on the Left go after Mike in a mean-spirited way does nothing positive for our state. Let's proudly send Mike Lee to Washington. Let's be glad that Utah's Senator, Mike Lee, reflects the values of the majority of the constituents in this conservative state.

    Mike Lee will be just like any other politician. The national debt will never be paid off because people do not realize the money system is privatized, the Federal reserve has control and everybody on this comment board is pro privatize everything.

    I fear the non elected Federal reserve who answers to no one, has seceret operations, and has never been audited, not the government who is elected by the people.

    Too many people don't get it. They think rejecting the tea party is wanting politics as usual, or being in favor of liberal ideology.
    But the problem with the tea party isn't as much the message as it is our willingness to cling to it, without stepping back a few steps to look at what's happening. We're watching REACTIONARY mob mentality. It removes rationality and replaces it with emotion. And many of the leaders who are being held up, even right here in Utah, are simply manipulating the masses to get themselves in office. They're not necessarily honest, competent, or better in any other way than the people being kicked out.

    I hope that people realize that Mike Lee will be elected and will be a good representative of Utah values.

    What's really needed is for people to support Morgan Philpot and vote out Jim Matheson. That's the only way that we, here in Utah, can stop Nancy Pelosi. It's an imperative if we're going to save our country.

    I think a good part of the one-third polling for Mr. Granato is derived from those who opposed Mr. Lee pre/post-convention - the RINO constituency. Many of those, however, will vote the party line when they enter the voting booth - the alternative is supporting the Reid/Pelosi policies that are being resoundingly rejected. Mike Lee will be elected; and he must be elected with a mandate, which can be achieved with a high voter turn-out. Encourage your family, friends and neighbors to vote. Take advantage of the early voting opportunity that is available throughout Utah.

    Considering that Utah is sometimes perceived as one of the most conservative states in the Country, for a Democrat to receive almost a third of the vote of a state-wide race is pretty impressive and actually sends a big message that Utah really isn't as monopolistic as people believe. It's also likely that parts of Utah are much more pluralistic than the Nation realizes.

    We just keep getting that same negative "extreme" spin from the Dems don't we. Doesn't matter what the question is, it's always that same response. Guess they can't really stand on their issues--which are the true extreme (forced healthcare, bank bailouts, auto industry takeovers, trillions in debt ....)

    Mike Lee's message of limited, Constitutional Government and cutting spending is resonating with people and I'm glad to see him in the lead. (I don't see that his numbers have gone down, as they are within the margin of error. I see him holding a steady lead!)

    Not only do I like Mike Lee's message, but I like his Constitutional experience in DC, which includes clerking for the Supreme Court and later arguing before the Supreme Court. Having met Mike Lee many times, I find him to be a very bright, down to earth guy with a great sense of humor.

    Of all three candidates in this race, Mike Lee is the one who understands the proper role of government, and has the experience and personality to get things done in Washington, D.C. He will make a fantastic senator.

    Why didn't the poll ask about Scott Bradley? One of the factors destroying our liberty is the assumption by news reporters, career politicians, and pollsters is that legitimate candidates only come from the two, almost indistinguishable, major parties. Only third party candidates give us a real choice.

    The Devil himself could run in Utah as a Republican and win easily. Utah is like DC. Once the GOP has selected its candidate in a state-wide race, it is over. This is called one party control.

    Why can't the Utah dems get it through their heads that Mike's "Tea Party rhetoric" is what America wants at this time. Tea Party people stand for the constitution and getting things back on track NOT more of the same junk that is going on with the Dems controlling the whole of Washington and driving the nation (and our great-great grand childrens) hope of prosperity into the ground. Sam is trying to show that he, perhaps, is more moderate about his party than most of those in Washington but the nation, obviously, is not buying that right now. Face it, Sam, Dems, Utahs who are sour grapes that it look like you are going to lose again, we want a real "change" not the one that you, as well as Washington want us to think is change. We have had it and want our America back!
