Trump is ahead of Clinton, 39 percent to 24 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson raked in 12 percent.
The New Yorker’s lead comes after anti-Trump conservative candidate Evan McMullin, who was born in Utah, joined the race. McMullin reached nine percent in the poll.
“There’s not much of a chance that Utah’s actually going to go Democratic this year,” stated Public Policy Polling president Dean Debnam. “But with Gary Johnson in double digits and Evan McMullin almost there, there is a pretty decent chance that Donald Trump will end up winning the state with less than 50% of the vote.”
Although Trump is leading Clinton, 61 percent of voters in Utah view him unfavorably, but that’s to Clinton’s larger unfavorable mark at 72 percent.
