The more that the media disclose about the personal life of Donald Trump, the less compatible he seems with Mormon values. Add to that, his ethnic and religious bigotry is incompatible with Mormon objectives of proselytizing to people in America, including illegal aliens.

It may now be hard to believe, but Utah used to be a fairly-reliable Democratic state, going every time for FDR (OK, lots of states did) and Truman in a close election in 1948. Only in the 1950s did it go Republican as Dwight Eisenhower successfully cultivated the Mormon vote.

Mormons used to be religious 'outsiders' who did not fully trust the Protestant Establishment, and voted something like Jews. Eisenhower convinced Mormons that they were mainstream and that the GOP had become friendly to Mormons.

What positive message could Donald Trump have for Utah?

Grabbing women's crotches isn't a Mormon value. Walking into female changing rooms if one is a man isn't a Mormon value. Involvement with gambling or pornography offends Mormon values.  There could be some very late voting in Utah, and it might not go well for Trump.

First presidential election since 1924  in which some independent or Third Party nominee who is not a racist secession from one of the two main parties wins the electoral votes of a state? That would be rich.

Mormons have a right to their sexual values, and the message might as well be clear: do not expect Mormon votes as a Presidential nominee if you violate those values. In an election that they know will be a Trump loss, they might want to teach us all a valid lesson.
