Former CIA operative Evan McMullin ran as a third-party candidate for president in November. Some Donald Trump fans — and conservatives — were afraid McMullin might tip the election by taking votes from Trump.

McMullin, a Mormon, was able to get 21 percent of the vote in Utah, but that was as high as he’d reach in any state.

Now, McMullin has announced he’ll be leading a conservative, grassroots movement to counter Trump and his administration. The effort is called Stand Up Republic.

To find out how people are reacting to the movement, we spoke with former Mesa City Councilwoman Claudia Walters and BYU Political Science Professor Quin Monson.
