Donald Trump trails behind Jeb Bush in Utah polls

SALT LAKE CITY -- Apparently, Utah Republicans are immune to the "Trumpmentum" sweeping through the national party.

A new poll conducted by Dan Jones and Associates for UtahPolicy.com shows former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush with 22% support, followed by Scott Walker with 11%, Marco Rubio with 9% and Donald Trump a distant fourth place with 8% support.

The poll was conducted from July 14-21, meaning it was well before the debate aired to record ratings on Fox News.

Political Science Professor at the University of Utah's Hinckley Institute, Tim Chambless, says the poll shows Utah Republicans are less skeptical of the idea of a third President Bush than Republicans nationally.

Also, Chambless said, Utah Republicans are more turned off by Trump's brash style.

"Part of it also is the negative association with a number of things Donald Trump has said recently. Making statements he doesn't support with specifics. And also alienating a specific part of the constituency," Chambless said.

    You don’t get to say “A new poll conducted by…” and then go on to say the poll is 3-4 weeks old. This reeks of dishonest reporting. I guess local media outlets are trying to discredit Trump too?

    Not. Another. Bush!! Trump is the only one up there who isn’t bought and paid for. And to anyone who doesn’t know, you can go to the OpenSecrets web site to find out where your candidate is getting their funding from.

    ONLY TRUMP, MAYBE SEN. TED CRUZ CAN SAVE US FROM THE STATUS QUO AND THE WEALTHY DONORS WHO BUY POLITICIANS VOTES.

    We must reign in against the overpopulation of the current illegal immigration invasion. It has been approved by King Obama and his troll administration to overrun our country with impoverished families. The masses can hardly speak a few words of English and can only survive on taxpayer’s funds. It is Donald Trump’s pledge to build a wall, to construct a double parallel fence–that would be similar to the fence in San Diego, California that has a 99 percent success rate to stop the invaders. This would be the first major deterrent? But seeing that the incursion of phenomenal amount of aliens, who have already violated the law, we need a master plan in implementing key prevention inland—and that’s E-Verify.

    ONLY DONALD TRUMP WILL MAKE E-VERIFY A MANDATORY LAW, BUT NOT THE MAJORITY IN CONGRESS OR IN WASHINGTON, DC, AS THEY NEVER WANTED SOMETHING THAT WOULD WORK.THIS EFFECTS EVERY UNEMPLOYED AMERICAN OF EVERY RACE OR ORIGIN.

    E-Verify can be a powerful disincentive, but it must carry the appropriate punishment to make it work? E-Verify could be the overriding technical system to end this plague set upon the American worker of cheap labor. Last April more than 1.4 million employment websites used E-Verify, and about 1,400 companies join it each week. Nineteen states have enacted legislation requiring compulsory use of E-Verify for most employers; however it’s not an obligation. But unlike King Obama, former President Bush E-Verify was never mandatory and that’s ‘where the SXXX, hits the fan’. E-Verify must be obligatory, with no exceptions.

    To carry out its operation, Congress must approve funds for more agents to carry out the sweeping searches for illegal workers throughout the United States. But when State and federal treasuries are spending $500 Billion annually and even more on foreigners siphoning off taxpayers money this deterrent must be enforced—as with the border? The recruitment of more government agents to chase down employers using illegal foreign workers would cost a pittance; far less of what is being taken now by the IRS? The crux of this issue would be harsh sentencing guidelines for employers who hire foreign labor, to a minimum of 5 years in prison and huge fines.

    E-Verify on occasion would be able to display a photo on a computer tablet for the official to compare to the photo on the employee’s document. Another comparison for E-Verify is using the system to determine the legal status of job applicants, but also a need for verifying Social security numbers and additionally stealth agent sweeps on businesses and the use of whistleblowers. This assists in preventing fraud. Under the new mandatory law the agent can compare it to the new hire’s photo pasted onto one of the individual’s documents: a Permanent Resident Card or “green card,” U.S. Passport or Passport Card; The USCIS is the branch of Homeland Security that is involved with E-Verify. BUT AS YET NOT MANDATORY, BUT WOULD BE UNDER DONALD TRUMPS PRESIDENCY.

    Hundreds of thousands, even millions of Americans would be able to take their jobs back from illegal aliens. It is so accepted that The Rasmussen Report http://www.rasmussenreports.com/ was unable to find any disagreement as there is an “overwhelming majority of people” who support the existing free online workplace verification system. Most Americans want citizens and legal immigrants already here to get priority for U.S. jobs over citizens from other countries that are in the U.S. illegally. E-Verify can help accomplish that. E-Verify has long been understood as a critical deterrent against illegal immigration.

    Every Data base including the Death data base should be included for searches, as illegal aliens are using the information on deceased Americans to cheat the system.

    DONALD TRUMP WILL BE BUILDING THE WALL, AND PLACING INTO LAW THE ARCH ENEMY OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, MANDATORY E-VERIFY.

    The press has been silent about a brutal murder on a Crow nation reservation April 27. IN LESS THAN A MONTH FOUR (4) MURDERS COMMITTED ON US CITIZENS BY ILLEGAL ALIENS.

    Latest murder by a foreign national was near Pryor, Montana. A husband and wife Jason Shane, 51, and Tana Shane, 47 of native American heritage were shot and killed by 18 year old Jesus Deniz Mendoza, when they stopped to help, the man posing as a stranded motorist who had run out of gas. Deniz-Mendoza, a Mexican national and lawful permanent resident, had been arrested for burglary less than two weeks earlier, but Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents filed no detainer for lack of a conviction. Jorah Shane, the daughter was shot in the spine, wounded, she escaped and hid in a field.
