Poll: 76% of Utah GOP Voters Approve of Sen. Mike Lee
SALT LAKE CITY – Today, a new poll showed Sen. Mike Lee with overwhelming support from more than three out of four likely Republican voters in Utah. The survey, conducted in the early part of December, showed that 76% of those most likely to vote in a Republican primary approved of the job Senator Lee is doing, with just one in ten having an unfavorable opinion.
Among Independents who are likely to vote in the primary, 71% give Lee high marks and over half of self-identified moderates approve of Lee. “Based on his present day public support, Senator Mike Lee would enter a Republican primary in an overwhelmingly strong position,” noted the pollsters at Basswood Research, the firm that conducted the survey.
“The survey does track with what we’re hearing and seeing on the ground,” said Brian Phillips, spokesman for Lee. “Senator Lee has been a principled, consistent and influential voice for Republicans and conservatives in Utah and around the country. And with Republicans taking over the majority next year, and with Lee becoming Chairman of the Steering Committee, he will continue to raise Utah’s voice in the national dialogue.”
The poll has a margin of error of +/-4%.
