POLL: 78 PER­CENT OF UTAHNS WANT HATCH TO RE­TIRE

The Denver Post - - NATION & WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON» A new poll shows an over­whelm­ing ma­jor­ity of Utahns want Repub­li­can Sen. Or­rin Hatch to re­tire af­ter his cur­rent term ends in 2019.

The poll was con­ducted by the Salt Lake Tri­bune and the Univer­sity of Utah.

The poll showed that 78 per­cent of Utahns want Hatch to re­tire af­ter his cur­rent term, which Hatch ini­tially said he would do af­ter be­ing re-elected in 2012.

But the 83-year-old Hatch, who serves as chair­man of the Se­nate Fi­nance Com­mit­tee and Se­nate Pres­i­dent Pro Tem­pore, has since said he is re­con­sid­er­ing run­ning for an­other term given the elec­tion of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and the pos­si­bil­ity of rewrit­ing the tax code.

In ad­di­tion, 57 per­cent of Utahns said Hatch should “def­i­nitely not” run for re-elec­tion.
