Trump Just Received The WORST News Of His Campaign! Whoa!


Tuesday, Utah voters will participate in the Republican primary but if things go according to plan, Donald Trump will have a terrible showing!

After Utah-native Mitt Romney announced that he will be supporting Senator Ted Cruz tomorrow, the polls continue to show Mr. Trump in 3rd place, even behind Ohio Governor John Kasich.

From Politico:

Though Trump once polled competitively with Cruz and Marco Rubio in the state, Rubio’s departure from the race and Trump’s increasingly polarizing demeanor appear to have soured Utahans on his candidacy.

He raised eyebrows when he swooped into the state on Friday to make uncomfortable overtures to Mormon voters and hurl fresh insults at Romney, including by questioning his faith. But a new Y2 Analytics poll show the bottom has dropped out of Trump’s support in the state. Ted Cruz is straddling 50 percent support, and John Kasich has come on strong, capturing nearly 30 percent of the vote to Trump’s 11 percent.

If Cruz falls just short of 50 percent — thanks in part to Kasich’s last-minute surge — all three candidates will win a share of the state’s 40 delegates to the Republican national convention. For Kasich’s allies, it’s elementary: the goal is to accumulate as many delegates as possible before the convention — and that means competing in states he’s unlikely to win, including Utah. But in a race that’s become almost exclusively about the also-ran attempts to keep Trump from securing the nomination, ceding any delegates to him could prove fatal.

Leavitt’s successor as Utah governor, Jon Huntsman Jr., has offered warm words for Trump despite Trump’s public hostility toward him four years earlier. In a Friday tweet, even Huntsman seemed caught off-guard by the political split among Utah’s leaders.

“Something stinks in Salt Lake City,” Huntsman tweeted. “Best friends Mitt Romney and Mike Leavitt supporting different candidates in Utah. Keep an eye on this.”

In an email to POLITICO, Huntsman also denied any plans to back Kasich, a fellow governor. But he noted sharply that it wasn’t for lack of trying by Kasich’s campaign. “Notwithstanding lobbying from their camp, no plans to endorse Kasich,” he wrote.

But it’s Herbert, the state’s current governor, whose wrestling with the presidential nomination fight is most indicative of Utah Republicans’ own struggles. Herbert, who’s facing reelection this year, came an eyelash from endorsing Kasich in a phone conversation.

“Governor Kasich is a friend oh mine, and so my heart is with a friend,” he said. “I think John has a wonderful background and wealth of experience.”

But although his heart is with Kasich, his head may be with Cruz, who he planned to meet on Saturday. “Senator Cruz lines up a little bit more philosophically,” he said of Utah’s conservative reputation. “I certainly have significant positive feelings about Sen. Cruz and Gov. Kasich. I like them better than Donald Trump.

Should Trump’s campaign be worried that tomorrow’s loss could be a sign of things to come in their quest to secure the Republican nomination? Share your thoughts below!

    I’m a republican but as it stands i’m a shame of them and plan on getting out of the republican party.

  2. brooke says:

    Yes the recipe for Ted Cruz taking Utah’s delegates is in the oven. (1) Orin Hatch has occupied a place in the Senate for 40 years and has done little else, but he’ll pull the strings for Ted, helping to thwart the will of the people. Don’t expect him to blush with shame. (2) Glenn Beck playing the Pied Piper happily leads the sheeple, who are still following over the bridge to the big happy, opened teddy bear world of drugs, human smuggling, insured violence with the import of millions who have been taught from the time they could hold a toy hand grenade, to hate America and whites. (3) Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan’s running twin is a collaborator for opened borders, amnesty and fully excepting of the tyranny planned for America with the TPP already under way. (4) Final ingredient, but not the least; A Soros board member chairing the firm running the online voting for Utah Caucuses. I’d say the scheme is fully cooked and ready for consumption by the Establishment.

  3. JUNE says:

    The fact that Romney has chosen to support Cruz is irrelevant. I think the mainstream media, like the Democrats, are afraid of Mr. Trump, and are attempting to focus their attention on Cruz, instead of Trump. Shame on them.

    The media will never get it right they have lost all credibility never report the facts anymore……

    Romney is a loser and so is RAFAEL EDWARD (TED) CRUZ: Born in Canada in 1970, his parents were then a Cuban citizen father, and an American citizen mother. Canada recognizes that being born in Canada make one a Canadian citizen by birth in that country. Rafael (Ted) Cruz also has, (or had), dual Canadian citizenship with Cuba, until May 14, 2014 when he formally reported he had renounce his Canadian citizenship, since his father was a Cuban citizen at the time of Rafael’s birth he still retains his Cuban citizenship.
    Citizenship follows that of the father’s, not the mother’s, and his Canadian citizenship was a gift from Canada for being born there.
    So how do these events of Rafael’s birth, in Canada, make him a Natural Born US citizen by birth? It doesn’t look that way. Good question though.
    As we looking further into that question and do the research and consider the following we see he had the opportunity to become a US citizen upon his birth, but not an NBC, had his mother followed required US protocol below:
    A child born abroad to a U.S. citizen parent or parents may acquire U.S. citizenship at birth if certain ‘statutory’ requirements are met.
    “The child’s parents should contact the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate to apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States of America (CRBA) to document that the child is a U.S. citizen. If the U.S. embassy or consulate determines that the child acquired U.S. citizenship at birth, an Embassy or Consulate officer will approve the CRBA application and the US Department of State will issue a CRBA also called a Form FS-240, in the child’s name.”
    (The above is what we were taught in the US military before were stationed or traveled overseas)
    The question then is did Rafael’s mother take the necessary steps to do this?
    If so, where are the documents verifying this took place? They should still be on file at the US State Department since Form FS-240 was issued by them.
    Also was this accomplished, if required?
    Since Rafael returned to the USA at age 4 who’s passport did he travel back to the US on?
    Or did his parents simply schlep him across the Canadian border?
    In view of this, is Rafael really a US citizen?
    I addition, a person born abroad who acquired U.S. citizenship at birth but who is over the age of 18 (and so not eligible for a CRBA) may wish to apply for a Certificate of Citizenship to document acquisition pursuant to 8 U.S.C. 1452.
    Visit USCIS.gov for further information.
    Did Rafael do this, since his CRBA, if he had one, expired at age 18?
    So Rafael (Ted)Cruz fails to meet the requirements for POTUS based on his birth right.
    The following more clearly states the requirements for Natural Born Citizenship as our Founding Father understood it at the time of drafting our Constitution.

    From Vattel’s the Law of Nations (which was one of the reference tools used by our Founding Fathers:

    Volume I §212. Citizens and natives.

    “The citizens are the members of the civil society: bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to [218] all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see, whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

    Also, SCOTUS has ruled on this issue several times over the years, this is excerpt from a previous Case Law decision from the Supreme Court of the United States of America (notice the date of this case): “(The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are Citizens”) (Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162, 167 (1875) (“The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or

    So you decide,
    1. Is Rafael a US citizens?
    2. Is Rafael a Natural Born Citizens of the USA?
    3. Is Rafael eligible for POTUS?

  6. La says:

    Did anyone actually believe Trump ever had a chance in Utah? If Cruz doesn’t win THIS state it’s over for him. Trump really doesn’t need it.

  7. Katherine says:

    Who cares? Utah men like to have a lot of different women too and that in itself shows their low working brains, you know the ones in their pants.

  8. Malissa says:

    Why worry? It’s the people’s choice……TRUMP 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Joann says:

    Never happen. These stories are always so misleading.

  10. Jerry says:

    Utah, your out of your mind supporting Cruz who is supported by big donors.
