Partisanship in Utah

December 02, 2021 (City Weekly)

Think you know all you need to know about political partisanship in Utah? It’s all GOP, right? That’s pretty much the case, according to Ballotpedia. “Utah has a Republican trifecta and a Republican triplex.

And the country as a whole isn’t much different. “As of Nov. 26, 2021, there are 23 Republican trifectas, 15 Democratic trifectas, and 12 divided governments where neither party holds trifecta control.” But there’s more to the story, as you will discover in the Utah Foundation’s most recent video Utahns’ Concerns by Political Party. The video not only looks at the differences between the political parties, but also at changes over time. Online, free.
