False moderates?

Your article is correct in stating: "The most hard-line right-wingers didn’t do very well in Wyoming's Republican primary." But that result wasn't terribly indicative of the political leanings of most Republican voters in Wyoming. Rather, it's a commonly accepted fact among both Democrats and Republicans that Dems switched parties to vote for Matt Mead in the Republican primary to edge out more hard-line right-wingers, particularly Ron Micheli. Wyomingite Republicans' political beliefs tend, for the most part, to fall on the most conservative end of the spectrum, and a candidate like Micheli would probably best represent the majority of the state.
