    Salt Lake Tribune throws support behind Obama


    Posted by
    CNN's Dana Davidsen

    (CNN) – The Salt Lake Tribune announced in an editorial published Friday its endorsement of President Barack Obama for the 2012 race, questioning the "pragmatic, inclusive" former Massachusetts governor's change into Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

    "The president has earned a second term. Romney, in whatever guise, does not deserve a first," the Utah newspaper said in the editorial.

    Mormons For Obama Launch Their Own “Missionary Effort”

    Harry Reid rallies a minority with in a minority. “I wish Mitt Romney would stop talking about his religion!”

    "I haven't had any rocks thrown throw my window, and nobody's scribbled out my bumper sticker, but there are a lot of angry glares, and a lot of feelings of exclusion," said Hannah Wheelwright, president of BYU Democrats and head of the Obama campaign's Mormon outreach in Utah.

    The SLT is a liberal rag. Deseret News is moderate to conservative.

    That explains why Utah, Idaho and Arizona, all which have large LDS positions are supporting Romney over Obama.

    This isn't really consequential at all. Utah will still go to Romney. The Trib is still a hack paper that's always been against a majority of Utahns anyway. Nothing has really changed at all since this began.
