Trump Leads, But McMullin Gains Ground In Monmouth Utah Poll

Donald Trump comes out ahead of Hillary Clinton by six points in the latest Utah poll from Monmouth University, with a slight gain for Independent candidate Evan McMullin.

Trump leads among likely Utah voters, 37-31, with McMullin following at 24 percent, Libertarian Gary Johnson at 4 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 1 percent.

Monmouth’s previous poll of Utah, taken in October, also put the businessman six points ahead of Clinton, 34-28.

McMullin, the independent conservative candidate, made a four-point gain between Monmouth polls, moving from 20 percent in October to 24 percent today.

The Monmouth University poll was conducted via live telephone interview from Oct. 30-Nov. 2 among 402 likely Utah voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the presidential election in Utah shows Trump leading Clinton, 36.5 to 31.4.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
