PoliticIt crunched some numbers on Utah’s race for Attorney General featuring Republican Candidates Sean Reyes and John Swallow. This race is a virtual tie. If we were to call the race today, we would give a very slight edge to John Swallow.

  1. I agree that John Swallow will take the race, but your numbers are way off. John Swallow has 2 Facebook pages (1 has 2626 friends and the other has 1393). Where else are your numbers off?

    • Thanks for the feedback, Anita. PoliticIt uses each candidate’s official campaign social media accounts, exclusively, to compare politicians as these are the main accounts with which Politicians and political candidates use to communicate and share campaign-related information; it’s our way of comparing apples to apples. Although John Swallow may have multiple Facebook accounts including government, personal, and other accounts, his official campaign Facebook page that is linked to his website (www.JohnSwallow.com) has 432 fans.
