With Presidential Candidate Donald Trump clinching the Republican Nomination, Trump says he’s now focused on November’s election. While Donald Trump and Democratic Frontrunner Hillary Clinton looking towards the general election, some say Utah’s might be looking for a different voting option.
“It’s really interesting,” says Morgan Lyon Cotti, Ph.D., State Program Manager, Hinckley Institute of Politics, “these latest poll numbers do show both Sanders and Clinton in a matchup with Trump, would beat him. But it’s one thing to have this hypothetical situation months and months before the selection. And there are pretty narrow margins between Clinton and Trump and a lot of people are still undecided”
Cotti went on to tell Good Morning Utah, “historically, if you go back to 1992 Clinton (bill Clinton) actually took third in Utah. He was beat out not just by George H. W. Bush, but also by Ross Perot. So Utah also has this traditional dislike for the Clintons. So the fact that we have two candidates that we’re not really able to rally behind, puts everything up in the air.
