Despite Romney swinging Summit County, it was the bluest county in Utah, with Obama winning 46.1% of the county’s 2012 vote. This was the highest share compared to other counties in Utah. The county has helped send only Republicans to the U.S. Congress over the last five congressional elections. Unlike other predominantly Democratic areas, the county was more than 94% white, and residents had a median household income of $83,336. By comparison, 74% of the U.S. population was white and the national median household income was $53,046.
