Utah has been solidly Republican at the presidential level for the past 48 years. But the leaked tape of Donald Trump bragging about groping and kissing women without their consent may have been the last straw for socially conservative voters in this heavily Mormon state.
Soon after the tape surfaced, several prominent Republicans in the state revoked their support for the GOP presidential nominee.
Gov. Gary Herbert did so on Twitter within a few hours.
Donald Trump’s statements are beyond offensive & despicable. While I cannot vote for Hillary Clinton, I will not vote for Trump. #utpol
Not long after, former Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. and Sen. Mike Lee (who had never endorsed Trump) called on Trump to exit the race. Still, many Republican voters in Utah are torn about what to do.
