Poll: Utah would go blue if Trump is GOP nominee

18789417264_ac05359ece_oIt’s been more than half a century since Utah voted for a Democratic presidential candidate. But according to a new poll from Deseret News/KSL, the deep red state would go blue if Donald Trump is the Republican nominee (bolding mine):

The poll revealed that Utah voters would completely reject Trump. Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump 38%-36% while Bernie Sanders leads Trump 48%-37%. Both John Kasich and Ted Cruz would win Utah. Kasich would beat Clinton 59%-29%, and Sanders 54%-35%. Ted Cruz would beat Clinton 60%-32%, and Bernie Sanders 53%-39%. Sixteen percent of those polled said that they would not vote if the matchup is Trump vs. Clinton. If the matchup is Trump vs. Sanders, 9% of Utah voters would not vote.

Utah is not the only state whose voters would explicitly deny Trump. Polls found that 9% of Michigan Republicans would vote for Hillary Clinton if Donald Trump is the Republican nominee, while 10% of Ohio Republicans would do the same.

Incidentally, the last time Utah voted Democratic was in 1964, when the state opted for Lyndon B. Johnson over Barry Goldwater; an election which is drawing a lot of eerie comparisons to the 2016 race.

    Just goes to show what a foolish choice Mitt Romney was in 2012.

    And I guess that Mormons could forgive Bill Clinton for just going out and looking for more female companionship.

    It looks like this news!better is put out by the Republican Establishment!! If Voting for Trump would
    turn Utah away from the Republican Party it just proves that Mormans don’t know what they
    are doing! Looks like we should send missionaries to Utah to convert the Morman’s to Real
    Christianity!!

      ARE PEOPLE FLOCKING TO UTAH?? THINK NOT!. BETTER START READING THE AMERICAN GUIDE. CALLED THE KING JAMES VERSION OF THE BIBLE. NOTHING BUT TRUTH. NOT THE MORMON VERSION OF THE BIBLE ,NOT THE QURAN.OR ANY OTHER VERSION THAT IS MAN MADE VERSION .THEY WILL SITE A FEW CHAPTERS OUT OF OUR BIBLE BUT PUT THERE OWN SPIN ON THE WHAT IT MEANS.
      I BOUGHT THEM AND READ THERE IDEA , AMAZED AT WHAT PEOPLE BELIEVE.

      • Todd Danza

        Actually the King James version of the Bible IS the version of the Bible the Mormons use.

    It’s time to call The Riders of the Purple Sage on their majic underwear’d rear ends.

  • LoriDee Harmon

    It is very sad (disgusting actually) that any Republican, Conservative, Libertarian, or right-leaning Independent would vote for the extremist left-wing candidates offered by the dems. You will get what you deserve, just as we have over the past 7 years of Obama destroying this wonderful country. I hold everyone who voted for Obama and those who stayed away from the polls (because Romney and McCain were not the “perfect” candidates) accountable for the spineless, feckless, and treasonous loser we now have in the Oval Office. If you want 4 or 8 more years of that type of “leadership”….then it will be your responsibility to explain to future generations how you were a key part of the moral and financial bankruptcy of this country.

  • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw

    If that happens then they go with Hillary, the LIAR, and crook. So they patronize crooks instead of patriot American who wants to make this country great again. I used to support Mitt Romney both financially and in action. Now, after his attacks on Trump who wants to fix this country, I have lost my respect for him. Glen Beck is a Mormon, Romney is a Mormon. So many Evangelicals did not vote in 2012 because Romney was a Mormon. Now the Mormons again?

    • Todd Danza

      True, maybe if evangelicals had set aside their prejudice against Mormons in 2012, we’d have had a better four years. At any rate, I don’t see much difference between Hillary, the liar and crook and Trump the liar, shyster, unabashed bigot and extortionist. For what little difference there is between them, the crook actually looks pretty good by comparison.

  • believe

    Lets try this again. I didn’t know there were so many idiots in one state.DO Any of the people in UTAH ever bother to research the people that are running for office to even know your votes DON’T COUNT???

    Bad mouthing the ONE MAN THAT COULD PUT STOP TO THIS IS BEING SLAMMED BY THE VERY PEOPLE THAT WILL LATER WISH THEY HAD RESPECTED OUR COUNTRY MORE BY NOT LETTING THE ILLUMINATI SOCIETY RUN OUR COUNTRY.
    HOPE YOU WAKE UP FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR CHILDREN AND GRAND CHILDREN. PLEASE TAKE TIME TO KNOW THE TRUTH. http://rense.com/general58/swuspre.htm

    • Todd Danza

      Oh, of course! How could we Utahans have forgotten about the Illuminati?! Maybe we also failed to consider that if we don’t elect Trump, Bigfoot and the Easter Bunny will be allowed to unleash unbridled terror on the nation! How clumsy of us.

  • brucebluemel

    I was a lifelong resident of Utah, born and raised and over the years I’ve seen the residents of the state turn more and more idiotic, and when the state got caught having to bribe the Olympics Committee to come to Utah in 1998 with the huge promise that we’d all get rich (lies), Salt Lake City Mayor Dee Dee Corradini caught handing out sweetheart deals to contractors, went from a dry state to a drinking state just to accommodate the Olympic attendee’s and literally changed the whole complexion of Utah, and turned a blind eye to Polygamy. I could not get out fast enough. They raised the tax claims to people that had smaller families to pad the tax returns for big families. I wasn’t about to subsidize people who chose to spring more kids. I was born in 1940 and up through the 1950’s, it was an ideal place to live. so when the lunacy started in the 60’s and 70’s, we high tailed to another state in 1999. They brag about putting 1700 new drivers on the road every day so we even avoid going to Salt Lake to visit family for the I-15, I-80 congestion. Well, just a word to Utahns. You will get exactly what you deserve.
    Goodbye and good riddance. We don’t need you to elect Trump.

    • CHARLES S

      So in other words while YOU were here in Utah; you were basically one of the “idiots”. So where did you take your a$$ to? What wonderful state did you move to ( I hope it was one where there is no corruption, no high taxes,etc) So tell us where you go to? Enlighten us all about the great things about the state you now live in…..
      I moved to Utah and its not the greatest state but I do love the great mountains ( I go hiking quite a bit) – I live 45 minutes from Zion Natl Park ..
      And as for your advice “You will get exactly what you deserve”….that goes both ways, brucehilldab luemel, …..
      The way this country is headed under obuma; YOU will suffer the same fate as everyone else.
      Good riddance to you! I’m sure Utahns don’t Miss You!!

      • brucebluemel

        I didn’t say I hated the state. It’s the idiots like you that I couldn’t stand. In fact i moved to Florida if it’s any of your business. No state taxes so not being ripped off by families with litters. And judging from the other comments, I would say your in the minority anyway. As for you being a hiker, big deal! I was doing those things before you were even thought of. I do love the geography. I’ve hunted, fished and hiked long before your sorry ass came from California or wherever. that’s just what happened to Utah. All you foreigners that came hoping for a killing in Real Estate or anything else that was going to allow you to take advantage of the trusting people that live there.
        And maybe you didn’t really read my comment. I never once said I approve of “Obuma”. Oh and who cares that you live near the parks. I lived near Kennedy Space Center and worked there. Also worked at the Port Canaveral Cruise port and worked for Disney Cruise line, so anything else you want to brag about??????? And as far as being missed there, I couldn’t care less. And just to be clear, I was prompted to write when I read that the paranoia in Utah about Trump would prompt the state to go Blue. Have you the smarts to know what that means. So you go vote for Hillary, OK? You deserve her.

  • ragcollector

    Hummm? Now why would they do that? The Mormons really don’t have morals and values? just greed and control, they want their cheap labor too. Honestly, If they threaten to turn blew, then just go ahead and die off. You do not have one credible reason to threaten turning blue, other than pure ignorance, which means, you never were red.

  • b taylor

    This is just plain bull crap. Idiots in Utah deserve a socialist government if they vote Democrat or 3rd party.

  • Blakely1

    It must be that inbreeding has diminished their brains.

  • DAVID

    that’s a bull crap lie by the media i’m from utah and i support trump all the way and i know a lot of people in utah that also support him the media is a lying pile of crap.

  • James L. Boren

    Well then, if Utah would vote Democrat let’s all go for Lying Ted or Open Borders Kasich! What a stupid article. Vote for a crappy candidate because Utahns are brainwashed?

  • Bud William

    I bet if they really, really tried, they could find a really, really nasty picture of Donald. Those losers.
