Just looking at some election results - Obama even won couple counties in Utah

1. Oklahoma is the only state where McCain won every county - and they are proud of that fact.

Updated election results released Tuesday show that Salt Lake County voters favored Barack Obama over John McCain -- but just barely -- marking the first time in decades that a Democratic presidential hopeful won the state's most populous county.

With the addition of more than 29,000 provisional and late-arriving absentee ballots, President-elect Obama scored a come-from-behind victory over McCain. The county's official election canvass didn't change the outcome in any other race.

Obama trailed McCain by about 1,900 votes before the provisionals, cast mostly by people who moved but didn't change their voter registration, and absentees were added.

The final result gave Obama a 296-vote victory, which equates to less than one-tenth of 1 percent.

3. Obama won 3 Utah Counties (CNN data is not quite up to date)
Salt Lake County (only a portion of the county is Salt City City itself where he won by more)
Summit County (includes Park City a tourist spot)
Grand County (includes Moab, another tourist spot)
lost Carbon County by 7 points and came that close undoubtedly because of union member miners.

6. I live in Oklahoma and I am not proud of that
fact that Obama did not carry a County, I did some checking and Kerry in 2004 did not carry a county either! Well at least Obama won Michigan & Washington(I was born in Lansing & raised in Seattle) :-)
