I'm surprised Wilson is even getting that much.

I could see a very similar result here to Utah 2012.

I think Romney will do better than he did in 2012, since he'll be exclusively focusing on this state rather than trying to win a Presidential election.

Romney could kick a baby into the Great Salt Lake - while also announcing that he has 3 Bio. € in assets in a bank account in Chad + that he has stuffed 50 cats in his trunk - and he'd still win 53-45.

Tilt R. Remember, Romney still has to run in a Dem wave, Wilson is a strong candidate, Romney lost his last election, and Utah swung D bigly in 2016. Any money that is currently being spent in safe R Nevada needs to be funneled into Utah to shore up Romney!

He could sit on a beach in Barbados, sip margaritas for the entire campaign season, and still win by 40. The real question is if he could pull an Earl Warren and win the Democratic nomination, too.

I'm honestly surprised that it's even legal to not vote for Romney.

Mitt Romney is only up by 45 despite the campaign not starting yet. Mitt Romney is currently riding high over left leaning voters thinking Mitt Romney is anything but a slime ball. Once the campaign starts, all the people who didn't vote for Trump will vote for a #resistance candidate (Trump only got 45.5% of the vote in Utah). Now add the fact that the #resistance will turn out more than Trumpists, and it's clear Wilson will win 57-43.

This is a much easier race for democrats than West Virgina or even North Dakota, where Trump got over 60% of the vote.

Are you drunk, or willfully blind? Even Republicans in Utah who hate Trump, love Romney.

Budget, Finance, Small Business and Entrepreneurship, Health, Labor, Education and Pensions and Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs would be my best guesses. You could also swap any of those out for Appropriations.

I think Democrats are more likely to settle for Romney, than a nominee that has no shot of winning in a such a deep-R state. He's very likely to basically be a hybrid of McCain and Flake on anything Trump supports, so Democrats (like me) will be happy with that.

This is obviously a joke, but I consider it a real shame that fusion tickets are now illegal in most states.
Fusion tickets are legal in California, but it only applies to Presidential elections because parties don't nominate candidates in non-Presidential elections.
