Utah Senate: New Poll Shows Majority Oppose Another Term for Hatch

A new UtahPolicy.com/Opinionology poll shows “most Utahns think it’s time for Orrin Hatch to leave the U.S. Senate.”

The poll, conducted among 600 likely Utah Voters from Feb. 16-19, shows 54% think it’s time for someone else to take the seat Hatch has occupied for 31 years.

Tied in a possible primary race:

The person most rumored to mount a challenge to Hatch in 2012 is Rep. Jason Chaffetz.

If Hatch were to face off in a primary election against Chaffetz, his prospects would be extremely iffy at this point, as the two are basically tied among Republican voters.

The numbers show 42% for Hatch and Chaffetz, with 15% undecided.
