*LDS S.M.I.L.E. does not endorse candidates but we do report on political matters when there is an LDS angle to be discussed*

Evan McMullin has surged to 22% in a near statistical tie with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton (both at 26%) according to new polling data released Tuesday night by the Deseret News. McMullin is within striking distance of a win in Utah, which would be the first time since 1968 that a non-major party candidate has won electoral votes in the U.S.
While the Democratic nominee finds her support stagnating, and disaffected Trump voters are leaving in droves, Utahns are eager to hear about Evan McMullin. Besides jumping 10 percentage points since the last data found in a Tribune-Hinckley poll in September, website traffic and volunteer signups have skyrocketed over 400%.
