USU Eastern students would vote for a third-party candidate rather than a democrat or republican according to a straw poll by the Eagle newspaper staff. Of the 100 students who participated in the poll, 32 would vote for a third-party candidate, 24 would vote for Hillary Clinton, 23 for Donald Trump, and 21 would not vote.
