The Ocho 

Pin It

Eight more shocking Utah poll results besides finding that incumbents are leading in all local political races for November:


8. I support President Bush in everything he does. Or at least the stuff I know about. Not a big reader, really. (62 percent)


7. Paying for The Mtn. on cable to watch the University of Utah get their asses handed to them 36-3 by Boise State? Totally worth it! (5 percent)


6. America does need Utah, if only to win a particularly difficult Scrabble hand. (33 percent)


5. City Weekly? Heard of it'how often does it come out? (28 percent)


4. Challenging an incumbent is, like, fer rude. (84 percent)


3. Gas prices are too darned high; I’ll drive my SUV to the other end of the valley to save 2 cents a gallon. Take that, Big Oil! (75 percent)


2. I’m too busy for a poll right now'can you MySpace it to me? (98 percent)


1. I’m waiting to see which candidates The Salt Lake Tribune endorses before I make up my mind. (0.1 percent)
