Pretty amazing that this map is a "Yes" victory.

#populist Carbon County returning to its Democrat roots by voting with the big city Democrats once again.

Seriously though why did it? IIRC correctly it was the only county in Utah that Swung R in 2016.

Something I've noticed in referendums is that formerly Democratic counties swinging to the Republicans will often still vote for the "left" position on ballot issues for years after they've flipped electorally. On Question 790 in Oklahoma, Coal County was the strongest "no" voting county, more so than even Cleveland County. The 2014 Illinois miminum wage increased fared especially well in placed like Calhoun County that are formerly Dem. Virginia's RTW vote also showed this trend.

The Missouri 2018 referendums show this too. Racist hicks will vote against their interest so long as the GOP screams bloody murder about black people kneeling, Confederate traitor statues and the like

There aren't too many racist Hicks in Utah.

In my experience, Mormons are far less racist than white evangelicals.

It really isn't. Most of the population is in The Salt Lake-Provo-Logan Corridor, with another dab in Alpine/Park City.

With enthusiasm high in SLC proper, and apathy in pretty much all the other burbs sans Provo, this was quite a logical conclusion.

Carbon county isn't Mormon. Its pretty similar to Applachia in general.

Good that Utah will have a fair map in 2022 - I'm assuming this means that they'll be a CD based in Salt Lake City (and possibly SLC suburbs and Park City) that will at worst be lean D.

Missouri Minimum Wage Referendum

now compare to the State Auditor Election map where the incumbent Democrat who by all accounts was doing a good job was running against a literal fraud with an R after her name.
Looks like Dems should be running on the minimum wage and unions instead of reparations and other electorally toxic grievances.
