  1. McMullin’s campaign is in shambles. His backers, which may include fellow Mormon Mitt Romney, have been desperate to have a viable candidate to oppose Trump who doesn’t reflect their positions nearly exactly. They had their opportunity during the primary elections in Ted Cruz but the voters rejected him.

    McMullin et al are embarrassing all of Mormondom. He should quit the race to save any more embarrassment.

    1. For an independent campaign that got started so late I hardly say it is in shambles. They do have an unorthodox strategy though.

      As far as embarrassing all of “Mormondom” (is that even a word), really? Why is that? Because someone decided to run as an independent? How is that embarrassing? Because he’ll probably lose? You really think that will embarrass the entire LDS Church? Please. You know what is embarrassing? The GOP nominee that’s who.
