Donald Trump has a Utah problem, according to Donald Trump.

A day after his political rival, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, wrote an opinion piece for the Deseret News (and almost a week after a third-party candidate did the same), Trump revealed his thoughts about how he’s faring in Utah to a room of evangelical pastors in Orlando, Florida, at the American Renewal Project.

He at least admitted he’s having a problem in the Beehive State. Give him that.

More than just those soundbites, Trump also placed blame for his Utah struggles on a false narrative.

Twitter immediately mentioned the flaws with Trump’s remarks and how that really could hurt him in Utah this November.

We’ll see if there’s more to come from this.

Trump currently leads in Utah polls 34 to 27 percent. And Utah Gov. Gary Herbert announced today he planned to vote for Trump in the election, saying he's the right man to govern the country.

Trump has also previously been skeptical of the faith, at one point even calling it an “alien” religion, according to The New York Times.

With BYU grad Evan McMullin announcing his independent candidacy and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson’s recent surge, this surely increases Utah’s potential to play a role in this election.
