Utah Poll: Trump up 6, McMullin sinks to third behind Hillary

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.

  1. If McMullin has 24% and Hillary has 31% then they have more than trump because McMullin has come out and finally admitted that he only ran to prevent Trump from winning and that he will Vote for Hillary.

    1. He might very well vote for Hillary, but Utah’s conservative voters will migrate a different direction.

  2. This stupid attempt by the “spoiler” McMullin is really stupid! Is this guy a nut-job? Go home and take RINO Romney with you! Trump-Pence on the 8th!
