Is The Idea Of Utah As A Battle Ground State For Real?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 3 hours ago
Since 1948, when Utah voted for Truman 54-45%, there was just one time when the Beehive State went Democratic. In 1964 only the 5 most racist states of the Old Confederacy plus his home state voted for Goldwater. The the rest of the country, Utah included, went blue. Utah gave Johnson an even bigger margin than they had given Truman-- 55 to 44%. In 2012 Utah only gave Obama 24.75% of it's vote, his worst performance of any state. So could Utah really go for Hillary in November? Short answer: no. More nuanced answer: Trump won't get 50%, not with Clinton out-performing, Gary Johnso... more »

Edmondo Burr at Your News Wire - 8 hours ago
An Egyptian judo competitor refused to shake the hand of his Israeli opponent after losing a 100kg match at the Rio Olympics on Friday. TMZ reports: The Egyptian is Islam El Shehaby — who was defeated with about 90 seconds left in the match when his opponent Or Sasson completed a dominating 2nd takedown. After the match, Sasson approached El Shehaby to shake his hand — customary in Judo matches — but El Shehaby refused. People in the crowd reportedly booed. It’s unclear why El Shehaby refused the handshake — he could have been pissed from losing — but there are reports that it was m... more »
