I never heard of him until today, but Evan McMullin is running for president as an independent, effective today.

An article about him at The National Review

I tried reading the page about "Issues" but fell asleep halfway through and had a nightmare about Mitt Romney.

His issues page is incredibly bare, and mostly super vague in the couple sentences there are.

I'm sure Trump's campaign is thrilled. They were hoping for the Green Party candidate (Stein) to siphon votes away from Clinton, and that the Libertarian (Johnson) would be relatively equal in pulling votes from both major party candidates. Now they've got their Stein, albeit a much smaller footprint for this guy.

I'd assume he's only going to be on a fraction of the states' ballots. He's already missed some deadlines.

Exactly my thoughts:

He still has time to get on the ballot in 24 states and in Washington, D.C., but the deadline to file in seven of those states is Wednesday.


That's a lot of work to do in that time frame (signatures, etc).

So, yeah, it's an impact, but much less than if he'd made moves earlier.

If Trump gets destroyed in the debates and drops out to save face, he could win some states.
