So should Trump run negative ads against McMullin?  Or is that stupid because it just raises his profile even more?


I doubt it,  probably best to try to ignore him as much as possible.

How great would it be if Trump actually came in third place?

In the words of Donald J. Trump; to the people of Utah,

What the hell have you got to lose?

Unweighted Google Consumer Survey has it fairly close as well.

It's probably too late for McMullin. He needs way more endorsements and exposure in order to chip away Trump voters.

I'm hoping this ends up just creating a right-wing schism to ironically propel Clinton over the top.

Hell, I would consider voting McMullin if I lived in Utah just so that the map might have a third color.

That's basically the plan for Utah Democrats.

Hopefully green.  Anything to help further de-legitimize the party of Jill Stein.

Nah, they won't want to confuse people by using yellow or green. Maybe they'll use orange.

Evan McMullin is on Tom Ashbrook podcast mentions that there is a UT poll due today.

He makes far more sense than kooky Johnson and Stein

Question. If McMullin wins Utah, and the rest of the college is something like 268-264 Clinton, do the Utah electors stay faithful to McMullin therefore giving the election to Clinton, or is there an elimination system to get someone to 270?

Each state's congressional delegation (minus Senators) would keep voting among the three until someone wins a majority of delegations in a majority of the states. Assuming Republicans maintain control in the majority of states, the most likely options are Republicans would vote in Trump, or would cut a deal with some Democrats to vote in McMullin. If they failed to decide on someone in time, the person the Senate picked for VP (among Pence and Kaine) would become Acting President until the House picked someone.

538 uses purple for him, which makes for a good Independent Conservative colour I think.

Honestly, Hillary should pull out of Utah and urge Democrats to vote for McMuffin. She doesn't need the state and such a move would definitely block Trump from winning it. That would be glorious. Even more spectacular would be Trump coming in third.

Give me a break, if this were a real country, the Green Party would be on of the two major parties.

Thanks. So there is no real benefit to Clinton in pulling out and letting McMullin win the state, she might as well fight for the 6 electoral votes herself?

And what will their opposition be? The Kanye West caucus?
