SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah is often called the reddest state in the nation, meaning by demographic it is the most Republican-leaning state. But that doesn't mean Utah always falls in line with Republicans across the country.

That distinction became obvious last month when Dan Jones and Associates conducted a poll and found out Utah’s aren't all that fond of the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination.

If there's one thing that's clear about Donald Trump: he loves being loved. Take these three statements, all pulled from a 40 second span of an interview with CNN.

“Everybody loved me.”

“I get along with everybody.”

“People love me, and, you know what, I’ve been very successful. Everybody loves me.”

And when Ted Cruz pulled ahead of trump in Iowa polls, we learned Donald Trump doesn't like not being liked.

Trump said, "How stupid are the people of Iowa?"

While in Iowa Trump is polling in second place, in Utah he is in fourth, according to the Dan Jones and Associates poll conducted for Utah Policy. The results in Utah among Republicans were 20 percent for Ted Cruz, 18 percent for Marco Rubio, 18 percent for Ben Carson and 12 percent for Trump.

The poll was conducted between December 8-14, and more details and findings are available at 



      They were smart enough to elect Mia Love to the US House of Representatives, and they are smart enough to know that Mrs. Bill Clinton isn’t who they want in the White House.


    Trump is smart enough to let us know he’ll cancel King Obama’s executive orders involving firearms right after he takes office.

    History will not be a puzzled at Donald Trumps rise.
    The ratings driven entertainment media is the platform that
    launched Donald’s political career.
    The truth is there are no more Murrows. The press is one of
    groomed hair and pretty teeth. Giggles and soft ball pitches. The New York cat is out of
    the bag and it looks like he might go all the way. The United States is at the mercy of
    ratings and spectacle.

    And…Donald Trump fits both perfectly.

    Trump voted for Obama and Backed the Clintons actions are louder than words. He’s a sellout and he’ll sell America out.
