A Trump-endorsed Senator is pulling away from his opponent with midterms fast approaching.
In the latest Emerson College Survey published on Monday, incumbent Utah Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) leads his independent challenger Evan McMullin by 10 points. The poll also showed that 71% of Republican voters claimed they would vote for Lee next week, with 23% saying they would vote for McMullin.
The Emerson College Polling survey was conducted from Oct. 25th until Oct. 28th. A total of 825 respondents participated in the survey. The poll’s margin of error was 3.3 percentage points.
The Republican hopes to be elected to a third term in the Senate.
