Why the Media Is Saying "the GOP Needs More Mormons"

Last week, The Week came out with an article entitle "The GOP Needs More Mormons." Since then, Mormon voters have been in the GOP spotlight. Here's why:

Donald Trump doesn't seem to have many Mormon fans. The Republican frontrunner was handily beaten by Ted Cruz in Tuesday's Utah caucus, receiving only 14 percent of votes and zero delegates.

"Utah proved to be the ideal state to put at least a temporary brake on the Trump coronation," The New Yorker reported.

These results, as well as polls conducted before Tuesday's vote, have thrown members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints into the GOP spotlight. They've rejuvenated Republicans who are exasperated by the ongoing primary and inspired several articles about Trump's failure to court them.
