As someone with moderate views, if it came down to it I would be willing to vote
for almost anyone who would run against Hatch in a primary, and that especially
includes voting for Evan McMullin. Sen. Hatch should keep his word and not seek
reelection, in my opinion he should have retired years ago. As it is now,
Senator Hatch has become to beholden to the pharmaceutical, and supplement
industries, and other special interests. He no longer represents my views!
Hatch checked out, both morally and emotionally, years ago. We have to get rid
of him and get someone who will actually do what he/she promises to do and stand
up for what is right instead of adopting the "Washington way" of doing
things. Evan McMullin is a principled man, and his experience both
in the CIA and the financial sector give him a unique perspective into many of
the major issues facing our country. I would be delighted to see him run against
Hatch in the Republican primary. I'd happily take any moral, conservative
over Hatch, but I think Evan is a good choice. I hope he runs.
HA!! McMuffin in the senate -- I don't think so. What is it with the
Deseret News and this guy? Is his uncle VP or something? Evan is like this
Deseret News favorite son and everything he thinks or says is printed and he
always seems to be atop some DNews poll. I remember back in October where the
DNews was making it sound like Trump had no chance in Utah and everyone was
voting for Evan. Fake news.
"I don’t know which statement of Orrin Hatch's I believe. Which
one is true? I don’t know," Chaffetz said.That comment
speaks volumes about Orrin Hatch. If he's dishonest about not seeking
re-election he'll be dishonest about anything he sees as being in his best
lds? libhilary outspent trump by about $600,000,000. that may have
had something to do with vote totals. of course, without the
people's republic of california, she would have lost the popular vote,
too.so glad the founders devised a system that prevents our election
from being bought and prevents an over-sized bastion of foolishness from having
undue influence on the election.
Lol, Evan McMullin is not going to beat Orrin Hatch.McMullin's
33% support is his ceiling. Hatch's 29% support is his floor. Hatch would
win practically all the undecideds in this hypothetical race unless he did
something stupid.McMullin was a one-trick pony who was only relevant

we're back to polls...have we all forgotten how badly polls predicted the
Presidential Race only months ago?======= The polls
weren't entirely wrong.Hillary Clinton BEAT Donald Trump by 3-5
Million votes.It was the projected Elector College that gave the
Presidency to Trump, and even that was only by 77,000 votes over 3 separate
McMullin cannot and should not attempt to take on Hatch as an independent. He
needs to beat Hatch in the primary election, or at the state convention, or
however it is done in Utah these days (I'm from Michigan and am not clear
on the details).If re-elected, Hatch will be nearly 85 when he
starts his next term, and nearly 91 when the term finishes. Utahns (and
Mormons) may tend to like older, wiser, well-seasoned leaders. But, Hatch does
not have 2 counselors who can step in if his health deteriorates. Given all of this, if McMullin wants to do it, he should throw his hat into
the ring and try to beat Hatch for the Republican nomination. I think odds are
much better than 50-50 he can do it if it is just McMullin vs. Hatch for the
Yes, please. I used to respect Hatch until he threw himself behind Trump.
33% to 29% with a 3.9% error and 17% undecided isn't exactly a decisive
victory. If the election were held today, McMullin would probably lose simply
because a good portion of those 17% undecided would go for the incumbent Hatch.
However, Hatch needs a replacement. He seems to be busier running reelection
campaigns and sucking up to Trump than representing the interests of Utah in the
Senate. I don't know if McMullin is the answer. But there has to be a
qualified conservative somewhere capable of defeating Hatch and assisting in a
much-needed revolution in the Republican Party.
As his intern in the 1980s, my mom thought Hatch should retire. My wife, also as
his intern >25 years later, confirmed it. Both are moderates now.As a conservative, I couldn't be happier to support Evan McMullin.
He's been an example of intelligence and integrity. We need someone
who's not afraid to go against the grain. If McMullin runs,
let's make his win happen.
Amusing we're back to polls...have we all forgotten how badly polls
predicted the Presidential Race only months ago?
What has McMullen done to qualify him for public office? As far as I know,
McMullen was involved in the messes created in the Middle East by the CIA. Who
can really trust a person enmeshed in the deep state with alterior and
If you notice who PAID for the "polling" it becomes pretty obvious what
their agenda is.As a Republican, I won't vote for Hatch, but I
also would NEVER vote for Mcmullin.If the Republicans don't
nominate someone other than Hatch - I'll vote 3rd party.The
reality is: anybody can do all the "polling" (and editorial
endorsements)of McMullin that they want, but he would NEVER beat Hatch!Dream on McMullin. You're NEVER going to beat even Hatch.
I am not a fan of McMullin, but I would certainly vote for him over Hatch.
Hatch is way past his 'use by' date.
I don't know that McMullin would be my first choice but I would certainly
pick him over Hatch.
doesn't Mcmullin have a relative at DNEWS who controls these poll?s......I
once read a DNEWS poll where Mcmullin beat Trump too........so much for polls!
