Scary election results

Dear conservative friends who live in my home of Utah county: I have nothing against republicans or conservatives in principle, but the result from your county scares me. 88.3% Romney, 9.8% Obama, 1.2% Gary Johnson. According to Wikipedia, here are the religious demographics of your county: 88.1% Mormon, 10.1% Non Religious 1.8% Other. Maybe you need to use something more than religious beliefs when you decide your political opinions.

Excepting a few other sparsely populated counties (also in Utah) for Romney, and DC for Obama, no other area voted so lopsidedly for a single candidate. Before you decide to say Washington is broken, I believe you need to look at your own county's politics. You might find something broken there, too.
