I happen to think she lost because of racist republicans.
They saw someone who didn't look like them,and even though they vote a majority of the time republican,they just didn't vote for her because she was black.
Either that,or they really are dumb and thought she was a democrat.

It's interesting how there are thread in the Politics area that accuses African-Americans of voting along racial lines (thought they have always voted for white candidates over the years, over other AAs). Yet here, where there was a "black" Republican candidate in Utah, where Republicans represent over 60% of the population, the "black" Republican lost. Note also that over 60% of the population is Mormon, just like the "black" Republican candidate.

Another interesting tidbit...

With that, the 2013 Utah Legislature which will be 81.7 percent GOP overall will be the second-most Republican of the last 80 years, according to Brigham Young University political science professor Adam Brown. It is behind only the 84.5 percent majority that Republicans held in 1967.
Yet Mia Love lost. Yes, quite interesting...oh well.

Imagine that. A black female (Conservative) lost out to a white male (Democrat) in a district that is over 60% Republican even though she stood for everything Conservatives believe in, including the favored religion of the district. But no, Conservatives are not racist. Why would anyone ever believe that?

Only delusional conservatives...

(And before the crazy conservatives run in, I'm libertarian (conservative), but the truth is what it is)

It's not as if I haven't said this several times before, but I guess nobody bothered to listen. Mia Love was running against an immensely popular incumbent that both Democrats and Republicans liked a lot. She did not lose because of her race. Period. I know what I'm talking about on this one. Had she been white, it would not have made a bit of difference.

And Katspur proves once again: local knowledge is the best knowledge.

Mia Love's district in Utah doesn't have enough liberals or colored people to make any difference. She lost because her constituency was not as wing-nut far right as she thought they were.

Nothing special about that, out here in the intermountain west. The far right has already come into power and many have been voted out in 2012, replaced by more moderate conservatives.
