TIME’s Elizabeth Dias reports on Evan McMullin, an independent candidate for president. The Mormon candidate has a slim chance of winning the election, but a recent Emerson College poll has him winning Utah, leading Trump by four points and Clinton by seven. Dias writes, “Regardless of the outcome on November 8, McMullin hopes his candidacy sets a new foundation for conservatism in America.
