Evan McMullin was the never-Trump conservative candidate in the 2016 election. He failed miserably, but for some reason he is now trying to run for Senate in Utah.
Senator Mike Lee is the incumbent Republican candidate and he is mopping the floor with McMullin in the polls.
Voters simply don’t trust the never-Trump crowd and for good reasons.
Breitbart News reports:
Poll: Mike Lee Smashes Never Trumper Evan McMullin by Double Digits
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) leads Never Trumper and Utah independent Senate candidate Evan McMullin by double digits, smashing establishment media narratives that this Senate race is closer than it appears, according to an internal Lee campaign poll.
Breitbart News obtained an internal Lee campaign poll that found that Lee leads by 19 points over McMullin, or 52 to 33 percent, with 10 percent of voters remaining undecided. The survey also found that Lee also leads amongst Republicans with 70 percent and is tied with McMullin on independent-leaning voters with 44 percent. McMullin only leads with Democrat voters with 60 percent, as compared to Lee’s two percent support among Democrats.
The poll from the Lee campaign squashes a media narrative coming from the Deseret News, which ran a poll from the media outlet and the Hinckley Institute of Politics. The survey found that Lee led McMullin by only four percent or 41 to 37 percent.
Dan Jones & Associated conducted the survey of 810 registered voters in Utah from May 24 to June 4, and has a margin of error of 3.46 percent.
The Lee campaign poll conducted by WPA Intelligence surveyed likely voters, rather than registered voters like the Deseret News poll, suggesting that the WPA Intelligence might better reflect Utah’s enthusiasm for Lee over McMullin.
Trump has endorsed Mike Lee.

Democrats are working hard to get McMullin elected.
What does that tell you?
