The latest poll of Utah finds a tight presidential race with Donald Trump holding a narrow lead.

The survey comes from right-leaning Rasmussen Reports. It found Trump at 32 percent, independent conservative Evan McMullin at 29 percent and Democrat Hillary Clinton at 28 percent.

The margin of error is 4 percentage points for the poll conducted Sunday and Monday on behalf of the conservative online publication Heat Street. It included 750 likely voters.

All three campaigns are shifting more attention here in the last two weeks of the election, a stunning development in one of the most reliably Republican states.

Utah's Republican voters, many of whom are Mormon, have supported Trump at far lower levels than in other states, lending to McMullin's strong showing here. He is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, born here, though he lives in Washington, D.C.

Clinton's campaign has also courted Mormon voters dispatching Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., who is LDS, and former Sen. Larry Pressler, R-S.D., who converted to Mormonism in recent years and is crossing party lines to support the former secretary of state.

Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine also wrote an opinion column for the Deseret News titled "Why religious mission services matters to America." Kaine, a senator from Virginia, worked with Jesuit missionaries in Honduras as a young man.

Trump's supporters have started fighting back this week, culminating in a visit from Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence on Wednesday.
