Also, Matheson and all the blue dogs were still smart enough to stay as far away from Paul Ryans budget plan as possible. Cant say the same for more progressive Chaffetz.

Seems to me Chaffetz has the more progressive recordHaha, please. I know conservatives are quite used to being regarded as ignorant but that doesnt work with progressives - no matter how many times you guys try to tell us Ron Paul or Chaffetz are more progressive than a blue dog dem or anyone else for that matter.

So wait, progressives here are rooting for Matheson to defeat Chaffetz? Even though Matheson voted to extend all provisions of the Patriot Act while Chaffetz voted to kill all provisions of the Patriot Act? Matheson voted to protect all funding for the war in Afghanistan while Chaffetz voted to end war funding? Seems to me Chaffetz has the more progressive record

Now this would be a true miracle... if the Democrats can win a Senate seat in Utah... that would be mighty fine indeed. I know people on my side (the left) will say we dont need anymore conservative Democrats, but I disagree. I think thats short sighted. A conservative Democrat is still better than a right wing Republican. They will at least be with the party on some important votes and that does make a real difference.

Matheson would make it a fight, but in a presidential year hell inevitably be tied to Obama and the other Senate Democrats. The GOP voters would almost certainly come home on election day. (You can also imagine Romney campaigning for Hatch or Chaffetz if hes the nominee).

He has supported some democratic initiatives such as DADT repeal. Hes 100x better than Jason Chaffetz or dumb-ass-health-care-bill-i-hate-poor-people Orrin Hatch.Im surprised to see him doing better over Jason Chaffetz. I thought Hatch was less popular. Do you think polls like this will affect who the GOP chooses as their candidate?

Ugh, Matheson would be to the right of Sens. Nelson and Manchin and would become Foxs go-to Dem for bashing Dems but if he casts a vote against Sen. DeMint as Majority Leader, I suppose hes worth it.
