Utah, Maker of Presidents

The new PPP poll of the state is a lot of fun, starting with the sort of unbelievable finding that Sarah Palin would only lead Barack Obama by 2 points, continuing with Mitt Romney's 53-point primary lead over Jon Huntsman. Huntsman was last elected in the state by a landslide of about that size. Three years ago.
