No Democrat has won the state of Arizona since former President Bill Clinton, but President Donald Trump isn’t doing well in the state and it seems he could even lose as the state is slowly growing more “purple.”
In an interview with former senior adviser to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) Mark Salter, MSNBC’s Ali Velshi noted that there has always been large communities of Mormons who would be solid Republican voters. But under Trump, that isn’t necessarily the case.
“You were talking about changing demographics,” Velshi said about a conversation he had with Salter yesterday. “There is a good conservative Christian population and a significant minority of Mormons who would have been solidly in the Republican column for the last many decades. There’s a bit of a shift there that you were talking about, can you tell me about that?”
