WPA Intelligence conducted the poll on behalf of Lee’s campaign, which found that Utah’s senior senator leads McMullin by 18 points, or 50 to 32 percent. The poll also found that six percent would vote for another candidate, and 12 percent remain undecided.
An internal poll from McMullin’s campaign seeks to counter Lee’s campaign narrative; the McMullin campaign poll shows McMullin leading Lee 47 to 46 percent.
McMullin’s varies from other polls in that it casts the Senate race as a two-way race, whereas six candidates are running for the Utah Senate seat.
McMullin took his internal poll to mean that he is leading the race, saying, “Our campaign is officially in the lead in Utah’s Senate race! The latest poll shows us beating @SenMikeLee in November–and it’s because of the incredible coalition that’s come together to support this independent movement. Let’s do this, Utah!”

These self-appointed mainstream and left-wing media cartels ARE allowed to exclude based on the usual, totally subjective, factors they always do, such as: “trustworthiness,” “fake news, “extremism,” “misinformation,” “hate speech,” “conspiracy,” “correction policy,” “expertise,” “authoritativeness,” etc.
WPA Intelligence conducted the poll for Lee’s campaign August 4-5. The poll contacted 500 voters by phone.
