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.
