SALT LAKE CITY -- Two quotes from the same Utah voter may sum up the feeling of a 68-member panel assembled by the Utah Foundation.

We’ll call the anonymous voter Jane.

"I am very afraid Donald Trump will become president," Jane says.

“I do not think that Hillary is a better choice than Trump,” Jane adds.

The Utah Foundation asked a subsection of respondents to their broad Utah Priorities poll to respond to a series of questions about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, now that each is close to clinching their respective party’s nomination.

Dan Bammes, the Communications Director for the Utah Foundation, says there was a clear consensus.

“If Trump and Clinton are the nominees, this group of people doesn't like either of them all that much,” Bammes said.

Sixty-two percent of panelists had a very negative or negative view of Clinton, and 77 percent had a very negative or negative view of Trump.
