Utah Voters Don’t Want Trump to Run in 2024

(PresidentialInsider.com)- According to a poll released on Wednesday, a majority of Utah voters do not believe former President Donald Trump should run again in 2024.

The poll, conducted by OH Predictive Insights, revealed that 54 percent of registered Utah voters think Trump should sit out the 2024 election while only 35 percent want him running again.

When broken down by party, a slight majority of Utah Republicans (53 percent) said they wanted President Trump to run in 2024. Among Independents, only 20 percent favor another Trump run, while just 9 percent of Democrats do.

Younger Republican voters are driving most of the support for a Trump 2024 run. Sixty-two percent of Republicans in the 18 to 54 age range want Trump to run again. Meanwhile, only 38 percent of Republicans over the age of 55 want Trump to run.

Among Mormons, a significant voting bloc in Utah, only 38 percent support another Trump run in 2024, while half do not.

The poll also surveyed a possible primary field. With Trump on the primary ballot, 43 percent of Republicans would vote for him. Second place went to Utah Senator Mitt Romney (20 percent), with former Vice President Mike Pence in third with 9 percent. Ron DeSantis came in fourth with 7 percent.

Without Trump on the primary ballot, 21 percent of Utah Republicans chose Mitt Romney. Second place went to Ron DeSantis (18 percent). Mike Pence came in third with 13 percent. No other potential candidate cracked double-digits. Fourth and fifth place (Senator Ted Cruz and Donald Trump Junior) were tied at 8 percent.

President Trump handily beat Joe Biden by over 20 points in Utah last year, garnering 58.1 percent of the vote to Biden’s 37.65 percent.

According to OH Predictive Insights chief of research, Mike Noble, the survey shows that even some states President Trump won by a wide margin are having second thoughts on a possible “Trump comeback.” Noble points out that with only a fifth of Independents supporting a possible Trump 2024 run, Trump “may not be a viable candidate” in Utah in the next election.
