    But as a headline states, “Young Democrats are embracing socialism” so it will all even out.

    Really? The guy with the gop nomination in Utah, tens (or hundreds) of millions of dollars, and is a surefire winner is able to take in more donations that the person who makes her living on perpetually running for office? Quelle surprise. Lets just hope he doesnt turn into another trump sycophant.

    Exactly. Religious people demand that you pretend to believe in the same myths* that they do or you are persona non grata.

    *But not your** religion. Yours it the totally real one. Its the others that were just invented by humans, not the real one that 'god' started.

    Romney represents "the political elite"; but at least he plausibly has some good experience, knowledge, a successful track record, and "conservative" (if weakly conservative) views.

    Wilson ALSO represents dynastic politics, being the daughter of a famous Utah politician, but has very few real "qualifications" other than her name and support for all the stereotypical Modern-Liberal/Leftist positions.

    I'll take Mitt.

    Are there any third party candidates worth voting for? Romney is useless.

    "Of course he is. Corporate "donors" know whom to pay to get the best bang for their buck."

    Where did that information come from?

    On BOTH sides.

    I wonder how much Mitt is raising from Utah Republicans? Or conservatives?

    Mitt is a nice guy but is not at all Utah conservative, although he may be by Massachusetts standards. I am worried that he will cave in on important issues, and not be a fighter like Mike Lee, and be more interested in playing "famous elder statesman" than doing the work getting substantive legislation advanced for the President to sign.

    I will probably vote for him, but I don;t want to be responsible for putting another Hatch or McCain type politician in office for six years to do nothing.

    The national democrats are making it impossible for Utah democrats. Normal Americans and most Utahans cannot identify with the level of crazy that is coming from the democrats in Washington. Poor Jenny is put in an nonviable situation. If she tries relate to Utahans and to take positions that got other democrats elected in Utah, she is shunned by her own party who are becoming ever more extreme and frenzied. But, if she adopts the hyperbole and hysteria of her party, she gets the money, but stands no chance of election.

    OH my gosh, mitt's raising a lot more money than his opponent lol. Oh no!! Two Democrats running against each other, it will be entertaining. Utah will finally be crowned with their Kennedy dinasty in the form of McCain.
