A new Monmouth University poll of Utah’s likely voters has doused Evan Mcmullin’s dreams of capturing his home state and possibly turning the 2016 election upside-down.
Donald Trump came out on top with 37% of respondents favoring the billionaire. Hillary Clinton followed in second with just 31% and former CIA operative McMullin trailed far behind with just 24% of those polled selecting him.
McMullin had shot to the lead in an early October Emerson poll where he saw his highest poll ratings with 31% of those polled favoring him.
Now, as republican voters “come home”, as pundits call it, it appears that McMullin’s dream of upsetting the 2016 election are all but gone just 6 days ahead of the election.
Despite the FBI re-opening the email investigation into Clinton, Hillary saw her support increase from the last poll which had her at 24%.
News reports of a “likely” criminal indictment in the Clinton Foundation investigation came out after this poll.
