Mitt Romney Underwater In Home State As Trump Attacks Backfire With Utah GOP Voters

Mitt Romney just got some bad news from back home in Utah. Mike Lee, Utah’s other GOP Senator heard similar rumblings from Utah voters.

According to a new poll, both of Utah’s Senators — Mitt Romney and Mike Lee — are underwater with higher disapproval numbers than approval.

Romney has a 46-51 percent approval rating – 46 percent approve of his performance while 51 percent are not happy with Mitt.

Lee has a 43-47 percent approval rating, slightly better but with more GOP support than Mitt.

Mitt’s numbers would be even worse save for the Democrats who now view him favorably – only 40% of strong GOP voters like Mitt while 59% of the same finds him distasteful.

From UtahPolicy:

Romney’s approval rate among “strong Republicans” is actually underwater: Only 40 percent approve of him, while 59 percent disapprove of him.

But “strong Republicans” really like Lee, 72-19 percent.

Romney’s problem with the reddest of his party is no doubt because he has been critical of Trump, while Lee has mostly stood by the president.
