New Poll: Romney Trounces Huntsman in Utah

KSL-Deseret News PollI wouldn’t normally consider a huge Romney lead in Utah anything but expected; after all, the former SLC Olympics CEO carried the state with a whopping 89% to John McCain’s 5% in 2008′s primary. This poll, however, is different than most others because it includes former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman Jr. as a potential presidential contender. Huntsman is a household name in Utah, and to see such a poor showing come from the people that know him best is rather telling.

This isn’t the first time Romney has competed well against rival Governors in their own states. These might ring a bell:

  • Romney Beats Palin in Her Own Alaska, Wallops Pawlenty in His Native Minnesota
  • Poll: Romney Edges Christie in New Jersey


  • Exit question: In a GOP primary, would Romney ever be so vulnerable in his native Michigan? …What about in Massachusetts (where he governed)?
