Utah gets liberal results from conservative government, which is a good situation. Part of this results from good personal habits; if few people smoke or drink, then people are paying little for medical costs related to smoking and drinking. Contrast hard-drinking, heavy-smoking West Virginia, which ends up paying for the bad habits of its people. It is arguable that Utah is not so progressive on guns as it is hostile to crime and violence, which is a general pattern in some socially-liberal states.
