    The Trib writer doesn't like President Trump keeping his promise to cut taxes. A lot of people don't. A lot do. And the Trib doesn't even get a vote

    The people who write it and read it do get to vote however. And Utah has a rather literate population.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    And now President Trump got 62% of the vote. Hillary barely beat the independent. 27 - 21%.

    Your percentages add to 110, and leave out all other 3rd parties, 5.5% more.

    The True Numbers in Utah were: trump = 45.5%, 16.5% lower than the number you presented, Clinton = 27.5%, McMullin = 21.5%, Johnson = 3.5%, and the rest with 2.0%.

    So they aren't idiots. And they reelected Hatch.... The people's choice.

    I see Huntsman Sr. refereeing here. He's no friend of Sen. Lee either. Romney has two good terms in him, since being 70/80 plus seems to be a prime age for GOP senators ...
