Evan McMullin thought he had a decent shot in Utah's U.S. Senate general election race.
The failed presidential candidate decided to set his sights a little lower after gaining very little actual traction during his run for President of America.
Turns out that this goal isn't attainable either.
Senator Mike Lee, a Republican, leads the never-Trumper McMullin by a whopping 14 percentage points.
That's an incredible deficit to be trying to make up at this point in the game.
A red wave is coming this fall whether liberals like it or not.
In Utah, the Democrats decided that McMullin is liberal enough to not need to put up a Democratic candidate in the race against Lee.
I would suggest they reconsider after seeing how bad McMullin is failing, but it's not like anybody the replaced him with would fare any better.
Mike Lee (R-inc) 44%
Evan McMullin (I) 34%
