News Organization Says the ‘GOP Needs More Mormons’

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

A news organization, The Week, recently published an article discussing the power members of the Church have had on the 2016 presidential election and why they think more people should vote like the Mormons.

With Donald Trump’s massive loss in Utah on Tuesday (with 85 percent of precincts reporting, the GOP’s national frontrunner has a meager 14 percent of the vote, coming in a distant third to Ted Cruz and John Kasich), Trump has finally met his match — the force in the Republican Party that can stop his populist juggernaut in its tracks.

The secret to bringing the demagogue to his knees? Mormons.

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints make up nearly 63 percent of Utah’s population, while Idaho and Wyoming (where Trump lost by large margins in earlier contests) rank second and third, respectively, for states with highest proportion of Mormons.

That leaves just two problems with the Grand Plan to bring down Trump using Mormon Power: The LDS are a tiny minority in the rest of the country, and these three Mormon-heavy states command a mere 101 delegates among them.

Message: The GOP needs more Mormons!

Which is, of course, impossible on such short notice.

Read the rest of the article, including the six distinct reasons “so many members of the LDS Church are so immune to the Donald’s demotic charms.”
