A Deseret News-KSL poll of 241 Utahns shows that a majority want Sen. Chris Buttars out of office before the next election.
According to Dan Jones and Associates, 49 percent of those surveyed want Buttars to either resign immediately or not seek reelection in November. Forty-two percent leave Buttars' fate up to the voters in November. About 28 percent want him to resign immediately and another 21 percent want him to finish his term and bow out of the race.
Buttars has announced that he will run again this year for his seat, though he had told The Salt Lake Tribune in 2006 that he would not seek reelection.
