Note that the survey date is after we already had multiple Utah polls released with McMullin at 20% or more.  As I said a few days ago, the mere fact that McMullin made it to 20% or more in a couple of polls has the possibility of creating a positive feedback loop for him: The Utah media gives a bunch of coverage to McMullin's poll #s, which exposes many more Utah voters to the fact that there is a guy running for president named Evan McMullin, which boosts his poll #s, which leads to more media coverage, etc.  It's not unexpected for a candidate starting with low name recognition but high support among those who know him.

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

We had Dixiecrats, what should McMullin's supporters be called.

Mormoncans?

Mormonpublican? Mormocrat?

Side note, the early 1830s and 40s Mormons called the politicians and militias against them "mobocrats".

And yeah, considering this is Rasmussen, I imagine the Clinton/McMullin numbers could be even higher. A dead heat is still pretty impressive though.

Out of curiosity, are in Utah, as your profile says?  Can you give us any "on the ground" insight into McMentum?  Is McMullin getting covered on local news, and does he have a lot of yard signs and so forth?
