Marching to GOP drum
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The Nov. 5 front-page, banner headline "Utahns: Nation's going astray" was not the most important news of the day. I hope you didn't pay for that poll.

Duh! I, or anybody over 12 years old, could have told you that 70 percent-plus of Utahns believe "the state is marching toward a better future and the nation as a whole is stumbling in the wrong direction."

If a Republican had been president the past four years, having achieved the same (or lesser) record of leadership as President Barack Obama, I'll bet 70 percent of Utahns would have believed that the nation, like the state, also was marching toward a better future.
