Salt Lake County, UT

Donald Trump won staunchly Republican Utah with just 46 percent of the vote, in part because of voters’ concerns about his character and temperament. Hillary Clinton won Salt Lake County by 10 points after Mitt Romney won it by 20 in 2012. Mormons, who make up a majority of the state’s voters, are generally conservative but prize personal conduct and character perhaps more than any other group of voters. Will the Trump’s administration’s ongoing scandals shatter what support Trump has with these voters? Will the Mormon population warm to him if he governs as a conservative? How will adherents to this once-banned religion react to Trump’s fiery rhetoric and austere polices on immigration and refugees?
