Yesterday I wrote about the great gains in Salt Lake County in Utah, but couldn't do a side-by-side comparison since AP hadn't updated its numbers. Well, they're updated, so I'm posting the comparison maps so we can marvel at what progress looks like:
The glowing county is Salt Lake, and notice how neighboring Summit County also turned blue. Mouse over every neighboring county, and they've all become less Republican. Sure, some of the gains are marginal, but it's all progress as long as it's moving in our direction. And the 80,000-vote swing in Salt Lake County will be the foundation upon which the rest of the state is gradually worked.
