The Missouri Scout blog, contracting with TJP Strategies, conducted a new poll of the Show Me State electorate (4/19-20; 1,542 MO likely voters). Though mostly testing indicted Gov. Eric Greitens (R) situation, the pollsters did ask a question about the upcoming US Senate race. The responses broke 48-44% in Sen. Claire McCaskill’s (D) favor. Her almost-certain opponent, Attorney General Josh Hawley (R), is embroiled in the Greitens indictment controversy and has become an outspoken critic of the Governor. The controversy has likely increased Hawley’s hard positives and negatives. This race is expected to remain close all the way to Election Day.
