SALT LAKE CITY -- After a monthly financial filing showed Donald Trump's campaign for President is struggling with just $1.3 million in the bank compared with Hillary Clinton’s $42 million, a FOX 13 News examination shows Republican donors in Utah have largely shunned the Republican nominee.

Donald Trump received a total of $2,903.00 from Utahns in May of 2016. The total comes courtesy of only eight individual donors.

By comparison, Former Utah Olympic boss Mitt Romney brought in more than $757,000 from Utahns in May of 2012, though a more fair comparison might be to John McCain's campaign in May of 2008. McCain brought in just over $41,000 from Utahns during that month.

More than 700 donors from Utah combined to give Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton $38,542.00 in May.
