Election countdown: 7 days

Utah has been consistently red since 1968. Like other states with small populations, the margins are small—just 200,000 votes between Trump and Clinton represented a massive 18 point lead.

In 2016, independent candidate Evan McMullin drew 21.5 percent in his home state—presumably from “Never Trump” Republicans like himself. He’s not running again this year, and he’s endorsed Joe Biden.

Trump is currently leading by 10 points—he’s likely to win it, but not by the overwhelming margins that Republicans are used to receiving in Utah. There’s clearly still a sizeable proportion of “Never Trump” Republicans in Utah!
