The state's Democrats, meanwhile, strongly favored Barack Obama. The Illinois senator had the support of 42 percent of Utah Democrats who said they planned to vote, compared to 18 percent who said they would vote for former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina and 16 percent for Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York.
This is very exciting to me, because it means all of the effort that Utah for Obama has made is paying off. It's very validating to see such support here. And it makes me want to do even more!
Utah for Obama is hosting another Walk for Change event next Saturday, October 13. If you're interested, the details are here. Last time we had 30 people, and I think our group has grown enough, and Utah support has grown enough, that we're aiming for the lofty goal of 200 people joining us. The campaign is supplying materials, and if the weather's nice, that means we'd be able to reach over 3,000 homes. Last time, we knocked on 979 doors.
