Evan McMullin Ahead in Utah

He's beating both Trump and Hillary in Utah. And he's angling for the other Western States that go Red, stating that they are conservative before they are Republican.

One thing is for sure, this election will be close, very close. If Trump wins enough battle ground states, thus taking votes from Hillary and so neither gets to 270, McMullin could make it so POTUS is decided by the U.S. House.

This whole process is making me silently mourn for this country. I think a Clinton or Trump Adminstration would be just too divisive for this nation. I would really like a Johnson or a McMullin...Johnson is conservative economically and would push for smaller federal government, with lower taxes and spending cuts. He's a states rights guy. While I don't like his social positions, I could stand him simply for the reason he isn't Trump or Hillary, and he is at least conservative on the economic and political side of things.

McMullin is conservative all around, but he is just a decent guy and he has Mindy Finn as his running mate - a Jewish, feminist, conservative, Texan. I think McMullin is likeable and an all around person who people like and could work with.

I believe Hillary is just as vulgar and rude as Trump, she just hides it better. They are both people of low quality of character.

    Well, good luck with that one because there is no way any third party will become the President, even as much as I would like to see one become President..

    Nobody wants a third party. That's been proven over the years and moreso with Perot.

    I like neither of the 2 parties who are running. She comes across as cold and detached and he is a pig. Neither one is fit to be a President.

    Nobody wants a female President and the ones who support him seem to be nasty and divisive themselves.

    I said it a long time ago and I have been saying so:

    We are stuck. You are stuck voting for one or the other... or perhaps you write somebody in or vote for a third party. Who really "Wins" here?  
  • I voted for Perot. Twice. And then Nader in 2000. I had never voted FOR someone until Obama. Third parties have and always will be part of the political landscape. I think Libertarians are misguided but I respect their efforts to get their message out there. I frankly think it sucks that we are still hung up on a woman president. I mean really???  Clinton is a pretty awful candidate, but I think she's better than the alternative. (Evan McMullin is too far right for my tastes).

    Well, I'm not sure no one wants a female president. I, for one, wouldn't mind a female president as long as she were qualified and had the quality of character. But, I won't vote for someone (or not vote for someone) based on their sex, that's just not a viable reason to accept or reject somebody. But, the ONLY reason a female POTUS might not be a good idea is the little or absence of respect she may garner from male leaders in the Middle East in which women do not hold the same esteem as men. This could be a detriment for the position of the U.S. in the eyes of some Middle Eastern nations with a heavy very orthodox Muslim viewpoint...the ones in which women cannot even get access to health care, etc..
