Evan McMullin Admits He'll Be Happy Preventing a Trump Win in Utah

There is no longer a question of Evan McMullin's true intentions in the 2016 presidential race.  

In an interview on Saturday, McMullin admitted that he would not be able to get 270 electoral votes, but said that he would be more than happy to prevent Donald Trump, who he says is a true authoritarian, from becoming the 45th president of the United States.  

McMullin, a believer in the Mormon religion, is campaigning heavily in the swing state of Utah, doing his best to prevent a Trump victory.

Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs called out McMullin for his comments, saying that him and the Mormon religion was nothing more than a religious mafia.

“A vote for any candidate other than Donald Trump, bottom line, is a vote to make Hillary Clinton the 45th president of the United States,” Trump's VP, Mike Pence said while campaigning in Salt Lake City. “It’s the hard truth. It’s time to come home. It’s time for Republicans to come home.” 

A recent poll found Trump at 32 percent, Evan McMullin at 29 percent and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton at 28 percent.
