Sanders leads Trump by Utah!

It is so, so over for the GOP.

They'll last a little while longer downballot, but I think they're done at the presidential level.

Check this out (like a library book)...

According to a Deseret News/KSL poll, Bernie Sanders would beat Donald Trump by 11 percentage points - in Utah. Yes, the Utah - the most Republican state in America. With Hillary Clinton instead of Sanders, Clinton leads by only 2, but she still leads.

Granted, some other states might surpass Utah in their Republican leanings, and I'd already seen a Democratic trend brewing in Utah. But very few other states in the Republicans' best batch are either big or growing. (I'm thinking of one state in particular - not Kentucky.) And the poll shows the GOP would still win Utah in the unlikely event that the party nominates another major candidate.

But a self-described democratic socialist is winning Utah now? Utah???
