McMullin Pulls Even in Utah
Now this is noteworthy:
The poll of likely voters, conducted Saturday and Sunday by Rasmussen Reports shows a sensational result in Utah, where two points separates the top three candidates. Donald Trump has 30%, conservative Evan McMullin has 29%, and Hillary Clinton has 28%. Gary Johnson has collapsed to 5%, with Stein at 1%.
I’ve always wondered why the Libertarian Party has chosen to go for a 50-state approach when the numbers for the Electoral College are a far different beast than say, covering a state or providing precinct coverage. Go where the fish are, certainly… but focus on a state you can win.
If Trump’s numbers continue to hover in the mid-30s, McMullin’s prospects (and the prospects of a Conservative Party) increase exponentially with a win… especially if Trump TV becomes a reality.
Should the election get thrown to the U.S. House of Representatives… Jimmy Stewart could really end up going to Washington after all.
