Friendzoned by Mitt Romney – Bernick and Schott on politics

Bernick and Schott Logo 1000

National Democrats think there’s a chance Rep. Chris Stewart could be vulnerable in 2020, mostly because of his low approval ratings and President Donald Trump’s unpopularity. Do Democrats have a chance to flip this district next year?

We look at our most recent polling numbers about President Trump’s Twitter account. Utahns don’t like how he uses Twitter, but they don’t think he’s racist.

More candidates jump into the Republican contest to face Democrat Ben McAdams in 2020.

Mitt Romney calls himself a “renegade Republican.” We discuss why that’s not entirely accurate.

Plus, recession fears, Trump makes a crazy claim about Google manipulating votes, and Greenland is not for sale.

Managing Editor Bryan Schott and Contributing Editor Bob Bernick discuss the latest news about Utah politics.
