Stu loves Mormons — and he doesn’t mean Glenn and Pat. Idaho and Wyoming — the second and third states, respectively, with the largest Mormon population — have something in common. Voters there showed overwhelming support for Ted Cruz and a healthy distaste for Donald Trump.
Monday on The Glenn Beck Program, co-host Stu Burguiere broke down the numbers in Idaho and Wyoming, and looked at polling ahead of Tuesday’s caucus in Utah.
Voting in Idaho and Wyoming
• Idaho: Cruz defeated Trump by 18 points
• Wyoming: Cruz defeated Trump by 59 points
New York Times Stat on Madison County
The New York Times decided to do a little digging and found in the most densely Mormon populated county in the U.S. — Madison County in Idaho — Cruz crushed the competition, with Trump only getting 539 votes.
• Cruz 57%
• Rubio 27%
• Trump 8%
If a candidate reaches the 50% or above, Utah becomes a winner take all state. Additionally, a candidate must reach 15% to qualify for delegates, which Trump currently does not.
• Cruz 53%
• Kasich 29%
• Trump 11%
Turning Red States Blue
In what might be the most shocking part of polling in Utah, Hillary Clinton would be the state's choice in the general election, making her the first Democrat to win since Lyndon Johnson. However, Cruz wins resoundingly against Clinton in the general.
• Clinton 38% vs. Trump 36%
• Cruz 60% vs. Clinton 32%
