This article addresses the geo-eschatological ideologies associated with Mormonism. Recent scholarship points to the significance of geopolitical thought within religion to society’s broader geopolitical inclinations. This article reports on a survey of 817 Mormon university students’ geographical/political/social expectations for the “Last Days.” Results show confidence in their church’s institutional and doctrinal roles, but ambivalence toward various geopolitically laden popular discourses in Mormonism and Christianity. American respondents have higher levels of certain types of ideological and geopolitical concern than do their Asian and Pacific Islander counterparts. Cleavages in respondents’ social and geopolitical thought show important associations with ideological variation.
