#rsrh Mia Love (R CAND, UT-04) now ahead in Deseret News/KSL poll.

Pretty significant turnaround:

Love, a Republican, now leads the six-term Democratic congressman 49 percent to 43 percent. Dan Jones & Associates found that among registered voters, 36 percent definitely favor Love, while 13 percent lean her way. The poll showed 31 percent definitely voting for Matheson and 12 percent leaning toward him. Eight percent are undecided.


A Deseret News/KSL poll that Jones conducted in June had Matheson leading Love 53 percent to 38 percent.

Still, as they say: the only poll that counts is the one on Election Day.  Mia Love for UT-04.

    right, and she will have to cover for a bunch of stuffed ballots I am sure.

    Elections have consequences, eh Moe?
    The 4th district is new, drawn after the 2010 census. Matheson had a choice of staying in the 2nd or running in the 4th and .. chose the 4th.
    Looks to this cat like the 4th (hard to tell from the official map here: http://elections.utah.gov/map/district-maps) was drawn to give a louder voice to some of the smaller cities, Nephi and Mt. Pleasant in the south, and also includes some of the suburban area around Orem and Provo and Salt Lake City in the north.
    At a *guess*, a Dem – especially one who’s used to dealing with more ranching and big-corp and cross-border gaming issues (Wendover, UT, commercial exploitation of the salt flats, ranching operations – all part of 2nd) is going to have a harder time adapting to Suburbia than Love.
    Go Mia!
