  •  I live in Utah. (6+ / 0-)

    Due to the conservatism of the native population and two egregious rounds of gerrymandering, the only Democrat who's won a federal seat has been Jim Matheson, who is about 75% Republican. That won't be changing any time soon. They almost certainly will get at least one more round of gerrymandering before the minority population start having a real impact. And by then, no doubt the voter suppression techniques will have expanded enough to give them another round after that...

    Outside of Salt Lake County and a couple of other pockets, the Democratic Party has little future in Utah. And most of the Democrats here could run as Republicans elsewhere.

    Frankly, I'd rather take down Exxon or Goldman Sachs, the way we're taking down RushBeckistan, than elect another "better" Democrat who's going to wind up singing for the bankster choir.
