Utah Republican Exit Poll
Utah Democratic Exit Poll
With roughly equal numbers in the weekly, occasionally, and never attend
categories, Obama won the Weeklies and the Nevers by large margins (61-33
and 59-36 respectively), and broke even with Clinton (49-49) among the
Occasionallies. Catholics broke for Clinton 58 percent to 42 percent. Oddly,
the overall Protestant category seems to have included Mormons, and the
numbers of non-Mormon Protestants and Other Christians were not sufficient
to give estimates. Mormons went heavily for Obama, 61 percent to 33 percent.
If the other non-Catholic Christians are added in, the “Protestant”
preference for Obama is lower, 57 percent to 39 percent. Given that Mormons
outnumbered the others 37 percent to 20 percent, it’s clear that the other
also backed Obama, but narrowly.
Ninety percent of the voters were Mormon, and 94 percent of them voted
for Romney. Enough said.
