Did you see in the SLC tribune

LDS says "Biden better reflects their values than trump" that sounds like a backdoor endorsement to me. It's possible Biden could take UTah and it's 6 electoral votes.

22. If Trump reflects their values more, then they kind of don't that many virtuous ones to speak of.

2. Maybe some RW Religious groups are figuring out that DJT is bad for America?

Good sign. I expect more people will come to this conclusion before voting. Won't be easy for them because they bought his bullshit in 2016.

7. Biden will not take UT

That same fantasy was floated in 2016. We are going to have to work extremely hard to hold the one congressional district there held by a Democrat. If it was districted fairly one of its 4 congressional districts could be pretty consistently Democratic but it's not.

11. 61 percent of Mormon voters cast their ballots for Trump in 2016.

That would be a pretty big shift.

12. Something I had forgotten... Trump was under 50% in Utah in 2016

45%. Bad news is that Hillary only got 27%.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_United_States_presidential_election_in_Utah

Obama got 34% in 2008.

14. It was an article about an event coordinated by the Biden campaign

The event was intended by the campaign to highlight several LDS members making the case for Biden. It certainly isn't any endorsement by the church hierarchy/organization. Still, LDS uneasiness about Trump is certainly going to help in Arizona. (Alas, I think Utah and Idaho are out of reach, though.)

17. Tribune is not the Mormon paper

Itís the gentiles paper. Deseret News is the cults paper.
