Strategies[edit | edit source]

Utah is a heavily Republican state with the party being supported by a majority of the eligible population. The GOP will win Utah by wide margins unless special circumstances occur. Utah features six electoral votes, which is more than most of the Great Plains states have. This means that it is likely that the Democratic candidate will face GOP activity in Utah if an effort to win it is taken. Late attempts are thus more likely to succeed since they give the GOP less time to react. Democrats can only win in Utah if they manage to raise their own awareness high up and gather some independent support, while the Republican voters must stay unaware of their candidate. This is especially hard to do in Utah since it will be hard to find widely appealing issues to address for a Democratic candidate. So if a Democrat is willing to invest in the Utah EVs, it can easily happen that the Republican will prevail there anyway even without any local activity, for example if they push their issues and awareness on a nationwide platform such as TV ads.
