Utah, which has voted for Republican presidential candidates in every cycle since 1964, is a cause of concern for the Trump campaign. It appears that the divisive GOP primary, which was won by conservative Senator Ted Cruz with 69%, has left voters looking for an alternative to the GOP nominee. For example, 51% of Cruz primary voters are backing McMullin while 29% are voting for Trump. Among Utah’s Republican primary voters who supported the second-place finisher, Ohio Governor John Kasich, only 4% say they plan to vote for Trump in November. McMullin draws his strongest support from young people, ages 18-34. He is winning 36% of their vote while Trump and Clinton each get 22%. Trump leads McMullin 35% to 24% among those who are 55 and over. It appears Clinton is pulling away from the GOP nominee in New Hampshire and is now up 8 points, 44% to 36%, compared to her 5-point lead of 42% to 37% in an early September Emerson poll. Clinton has also seen her favorable rating in the Granite State increase 5 points, from 38% to 43%, while Trump’s has increased 2 points, from 34% to 36%. In Pennsylvania, Clinton has widened her lead slightly, edging Trump 45% to 41%, compared to her 3-point advantage (46% to 43%) in September. In Missouri, Trump has lost ground to Clinton but is still up by 8 points, 47% to 39%. The number of voters who view him unfavorably has increased in the same time frame, from 51% to 56%, while Clinton’s unfavorable rating has dropped from 64% to 61%. Favorable/Unfavorable Ratings

In U.S. Senate races, Republican incumbent Kelly Ayotte is tied with New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan at 45% apiece after leading Hassan 48% to 46% in September. Ayotte has struggled to distance herself from Trump. GOP Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri is now tied with Democrat Jason Kander at 44% after trailing Kander 42% to 40% in a prior Emerson poll. The Senate race in Pennsylvania has also tightened with the GOP’s junior senator, Pat Toomey, holding a 46% to 43% lead over Katie McGinty after leading McGinty by 7 points (46% to 39%) in August.
