New Poll: Utah Really Hates Donald Trump

(Before It's News)

Utah is pretty much the most Republican state in the whole country. Utah gave Mitt Romney his largest margin of victory over Barack Obama, by a lot. It was the third most Republican state in 2008 behind only Wyoming and Oklahoma. Utah really hates Democrats, especially in the Presidential race.

However, Utah has found something they hate almost as much or more than Democrats: Donald Trump. Back in March, two different polls were released that showed that Trump was in a dead heat with Hillary Clinton. Many people pooh-poohed those results as part of the primary fervor. However, the primaries are over, and it appears that Utah still really hates Donald Trump.

From Gravis, Donald Trump is leading Hillary (barely) in Utah, but is tied with “some other candidate” even though “some other candidate” is not even given a name.

The focus of the Gravis poll then shifted to the upcoming Presidential election, with Gravis Marketing asking voters their opinions about whom they would vote for in the general election among prospective nominees (including an open third party nominee and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson). The first potential match-up asked the voters, “If you had to vote today in a match-up between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, who would you vote for?” Donald Trump received the lion’ share of support, with 36 percent indicated they would vote for him, Hillary Clinton received 29 percent. However, 35 percent of those asked in Utah selected the ‘Other’ option – leaving speculation that the traditionally conservative state might select a third party candidate.

Gravis Marketing expanded the list of probable candidates for President of the United States with the second question; “If you had to vote today in a matchup between Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and Gary Johnson, who would you vote for?” In this scenario, Donald Trump and the ‘other’ candidate tied with 29 percent each, Hillary Clinton received 26 percent support, while Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate received 16 percent.

FYI, if Gary Johnson does get 16% in Utah, that would be the most any Libertarian candidate has ever gotten in any state, in any race, ever, by a huge margin. The fact that this might happen in Utah, which is one of the least Libertarian states in the whole country, indicates how deep disdain for Trump goes among Utah voters.
