Why won't my 1998 Mitsubishi eclipse start? I put the key in. Turn it. The dash lights up. I hear what I assume is the fuel pump but the car will not crank.

Right now it won't start at all.  For the week prior every time I would have to
turn the key 5-8 times until it I finally turned over

Maybe a faulty ignition switch.
