    Curtis I get. I have no idea why anyone would ever vote for Bishop.

    Dem platform is a loser. Anti trump everything doesn’t work.

    Other than to keep appearances, I don't know why the Democrats even need to run a candidate against Curtis. He is a Democrat. For anyone to claim he is too far right is to demonstrate that party labels matter far more than facts to far too many people.

    Curtis is exactly what the left claims they want: Moderate who work well across the aisle. Curtis works so well across the aisle, he changed his party affiliation. But I don't see that he has changed his positions materially since he was a registered Democrat.

    On Rob Bishop, the left has a legit complaint. In these cases I really do wish the UU party well. It would be nice to have a choice that didn't involve accepting the radical left-wing agenda of the national Democrats with Nancy Pelosi, Diane Feinstein, Bernie & Hillary.

    @SMcloud: "I wonder how well they will do if the boundaries were drawn fairly."

    The boundaries are so fair that Utah is one of a minority of States where there were no lawsuits over our redistricting last time.

    What urban liberals want is not fair boundaries, but a gerrymandered, Democrat-safe seat that utterly ignore rural voices while presuming to speak as Utahn on rural issues, against rural interests.

    @strom thurmond: "The sample size is too small to constitute worthwhile news."

    In a tight race, a margin of error of 7% would be a problem. In these races it isn't.

    @A Scientist: "I can't decide: is the LDS Church the "deep state" organization controlling Utah government, or is it the other way around?"

    I can't decide: Do some people just love to be miserable and so live where they hate the culture? Or do they really enjoy the lifestyle provided by the dominate culture, but are too bigoted or small minded to make the connection and so throw out bombs every chance they get.

    Some days I wish The Church of Jesus Christ would exercise all the influence over local government that detractors claim it does. Not only would the haters get a real awakening as to how hands off The Church is most of the time on most issues, but we might have an even nicer State in which to live than we do now.

    It would be awesome if all govt welfare included work requirements and mandatory financial counseling for recipients. Imagine if laws actually encouraged personal sexual morality rather than just trying to clean up from rampant STDs after the fact. It would be worth being a sanctuary State.

    Correction: You mean The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints...just getting the word out.

    Utah cares not for choice, change or an educated vote, they vote for the guy with an r by their name. Don't question authority.

    Bishop has been in D.C. too long. He has become part of the entrenched and ineffective right. It is too bad the Dems didn't come up with an outstanding, fiscally responsible moderate and they could have beat him.

    Who could possibly vote for a party that demands we provide unlimited taxpayer money to unlimited illegals, none of which are vetted and which the Democrats want to vote? Who could possibly vote for the party of "Vote for us so we can ban your speech and harass your faith and take away your ability to defend yourselves!" The party of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. The party of Harvey Weinstein and Les Moonves and Bill Clinton and many, many more. The party of "Let's sexually prey on women and hey, you can kill your baby any time you want so no harm done!"

    Who could vote for the party that says "We hate a good economy and low taxes, and if elected will change both of those!" That promises to make your health care experience have the compassion of the IRS mixed with the DMV's efficiency, with the resulting care looking like Colonel Klink ran it.

    Who could vote for the party that claims that they are the arbiters of what is right and wrong and that the Churches should shut up because morality is politics? Who claims that Christianity is evil and Islam is fantastic?

    It's no wonder that Bishop and Curtis have big leads.

    Why do they even do these?

    Oh, that's right, Dan Jones likes to invent news.

    I wonder how well they will do if the boundaries were drawn fairly.
