SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- An opinion poll commissioned by The Salt Lake Tribune says most people are in favor of a federal crackdown on polygamy.

More than half want federal authorities to get involved, while 27 are opposed.

The poll found more enthusiasm for federal prosecution from non-Mormons than church members.

Overall, they said Utah and Arizona aren't doing a good job cracking down on their own.
