Donald Trump has been riding a wave favorable political poll numbers as of late, except in Utah, where he trails potential competitors by larger margins, the Deseret News reported.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would trounce Trump in a Utah GOP head-to-head matchup, 83 percent to 11 percent, a new Deseret News/KSL poll found.

"I think Utahns realize that one man has a vision for running the country and the other man, a vision for getting his ratings up," Kirk Jowers, head of the University of Utah's Hinckley Institute of Politics and a longtime Romney supporter, told the newspaper.

Jowers said he was surprised Trump has support from as many Utah voters as he did. "We have 11 percent who want to be an apprentice," he said, referring to Trump's popular TV show.

Even with other Republicans in the mix, Trump ends up in fourth place among Utah voters polled, with 5 percent compared to 69 percent for Romney, a Mormon and the former leader of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
