Action Utah works on the issues that data shows a majority of Utahns care about most and takes the stance of the majority on those issues.
Utah’s Top Priority Issues: Regardless of political affiliation, religion, race, ethnicity or age, most Utahns agree on most issues, with some variation from north to south and rural to urban.
Our Sources: Action Utah uses credible, trusted data sources, such as Dan Jones Polling, Envision Utah, Hinckley Institute, Utah Foundation, Kem C. Gardner Institute and Utah Policy, to track what issues Utahns care about most and what the majority stance is on those issues.
Who are “a majority” of Utahns? On each issue that “a majority” of Utahns agree on, consensus comes from different combinations of people from different political affiliations and ideologies, genders, races and ethnic backgrounds, faiths (including agnostics), and regions of the state. The term “majority” does not refer to traditional Utah majorities, such as Caucasian or Latter-day Saint. Rather issue majorities are determined by ideological beliefs that include large swaths of the population from diverse backgrounds, including traditional majorities and many others. The majority doesn’t look exactly the same on all the issues, but rather varies from issue to issue — though there is inherently overlap between the majorities on most issues. In other words, we are all part of “a majority of Utahns” on a majority of the issues.
