A New Poll Predicts Victory For This Candidate In Utah Tuesday… It’s Not Who You Think It Is
But then again, maybe it is. Heh. Ted Cruz is leading massively in Utah. Utah is very conservative and very religious and it would seem they are giving an overwhelming thumb’s up to Cruz there. At stake are 40 delegates in a winner-take-all caucus. Cruz has 53% of the vote. Kasich follows with 29% and Trump trails badly at 11%. Then it is on to Arizona where Trump is the favored in the polls by about 12 points, but Cruz is surging there as well. John McCain predicts Cruz will win because he was the only one there with a ground game. We’ll see. In Utah, you have to reach 15% of the vote to take the delegates and Cruz will jump that hurdle easily.
From Allen West:
A new poll shows Texas Sen. Ted Cruz with a steep lead in the Utah GOP caucuses that could award him all of the state’s delegates if it holds.
A Y2 Analytics survey released Saturday puts Cruz with 53 percent of the vote, according to The Salt Lake Tribune. He is followed by Ohio Gov. John Kasich with 29 percent and Donald Trump trailing at 11 percent.
Cruz has the endorsement of Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R), who has been on the campaign trail with him there. Utah, along with Arizona and American Samoa, votes on Tuesday. Mitt Romney is not endorsing Cruz, but says he is voting for him and is encouraging everyone else to as well. I assume that is to primarily to stop Donald Trump. It’s small wonder Cruz is doing well in Utah. Trump trashed Romney for being a Mormon. Bad move in that state. Cruz came out and told Trump that it is one thing to go after Romney’s politics… it is quite another to go after his faith. That is exactly right. The Y2 poll for Utah was conducted on March 17–19 and surveyed 500 likely Republican caucus-goers. The poll has a margin of error of 4 percentage points. I hope Arizona flips for Cruz as well.
