As the setting sun flooded a meeting of Utah Republicans, Melanie Sorensen described her concerns about her party's presumptive presidential nominee.Voters in this slice of deeply conservative Utah are experiencing an acute version of the political panic attack that's gripped much of the GOP since Trump's remaining rivals dropped out last week.It's home to Brigham Young University, and 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney won 88 percent of its voters against President Barack Obama.No presidential nominee in recent decades has won the White House without overwhelming support from voters of his own party – typically 90 percent of them or more – but the GOP is badly splintered over Trump.The last two GOP presidents – George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush – said they wouldn't attend the party's July convention where Trump awaits the nomination.Some Utah Republicans are grudgingly lining up behind Trump. U.S. Rep.
