'I'm the Only Conservative in This Race': Independent McMullin Gains in Utah Polls
Among Utah voters likely to cast ballots in November’s presidential election, 34 percent support Donald Trump, 28 percent back Hillary Clinton and 20 percent would vote for independent Evan McMullin, according to a Monmouth University poll.
On "Your World" today, McMullin said he's "humbled" to be polling so well in his home state.
McMullin was born in Utah, graduated from Brigham Young University and served as a Mormon missionary in Brazil.
The former CIA counterterrorism officer noted that his "name ID" in Utah is only 52 percent, so he believes he has lots of room to gain ground in Utah as more voters hear his message.
"People are looking more closely at the candidates as we approach Election Day. And they're not liking - especially here in Utah - what they're seeing from Donald Trump," McMullin explained.
Neil Cavuto asked if McMullin is concerned about playing "spoiler" for Trump and tipping the race to Clinton.
"If anything, Donald Trump is a spoiler for conservatism, he's a spoiler for the Republican Party," McMullin said. "I'm the only conservative in this race, and I'm standing for principles that this country was founded upon and that are key to our future."
