(KSL News) Utah bucks the trend when it comes to political affiliation. A new survey shows only 35 percent of voters nationwide consider themselves Republicans; while 50 percent say they are Democrats.

However, here in Utah, Republicans still trump Democrats by 38 percent to 21 percent.

According to pollster Dan Jones, the biggest change is in the number of people who think of themselves as independents in the state. In the last five years that number has gone from 19 percent to 45 percent.
