Incumbent Utah Republican Senator Mike Lee is still leading never-Trump candidate Evan McMullin.
Republican voters have no use for someone like McMullin, whose entire political identity is based on being anti-Trump.
Conservatives are rejecting people like Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, why would they go for a candidate like McMullin?
Breitbart News reports:
Poll: Mike Lee Holds Double-Digit Lead over Never Trumper Evan McMullin in Utah’s Senate Race
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) leads Never Trumper and failed presidential candidate Evan McMullin by 14 percentage points in Utah’s U.S. Senate general election race, according to a poll.
The Center Street PAC/ Momentiv AI poll found that 50 percent of likely voters sampled preferred Lee, who secured former President Donald Trump’s endorsement in the primary, while just 36 percent chose independent candidate McMullin.
Lee’s support expanded by 12 percentage points since March – before he won the nomination for his reelection campaign – when a previous Center Street PAC/Momentiv AI poll had him at 38 percent. McMullin saw a minor six-point gain since registering at 30 percent in March.
Four months ago, 32 percent of likely voters were undecided – and in the latest poll, just 15 percent were undecided – showing that those unsure of who to back are flocking to Lee at a higher clip than McMullin once they make their decisions.
There is no Democrat candidate on the ballot, as the left looks to consolidate support with the Never Trumper candidate in an attempt to unseat Lee. Among all adults surveyed, Lee drew 43 percent of the response, while 32 percent stated they preferred McMullin. Another 26 percent were undecided. It was a similar story with registered voters, as 44 percent selected Lee, and 34 percent preferred the former GOP staffer:

Mike Lee (R-inc) 44%
Evan McMullin (I) 34%

The never-Trump movement is on its way out.
People want the policies and values Trump embraced, not his critics.
