According to the article, both Democrats and Republicans are trying hard to get the LDS vote this election cycle. The traditionally vote Republican, but many didn't like Trump.

So, what do you think? Who will get the majority of the LDS vote? If you are a member of the LDS church, what are your thoughts?


Mormons rejected Trump as blasphemous. Now he likely can’t win without them. - POLITICO

"In 2016, Mormons rejected Donald Trump in numbers unheard of for a Republican nominee — viewing the thrice-married, immigrant-bashing Republican as an affront to their values.

In 2020, the president is going all-out to change their minds — a little-noticed effort that could make or break him in Arizona and Nevada, home to more than a half-million Latter-day Saints combined. Joe Biden's campaign, sensing an unlikely opening for a Democrat, is also targeting Mormons in the pair of Western swing states.

Before Trump became the party standard bearer, Mormons had been among the most loyal GOP voters in the country. A 2010 Gallup survey found that “Mormons are both the most Republican and the most conservative of any of the major religious groups in the U.S. today.” But many Mormons found Trump blasphemous, and the Church itself made thinly veiled statements condemning the candidate’s rhetoric on immigration and religious freedom."
