Missouri poll shows no clear front-runner in GOP governor race

ST. LOUIS — An overwhelming majority of registered voters don’t know who they’ll support in the Missouri gubernatorial race to succeed Governor Mike Parson. The statewide poll is released a little more than six weeks ahead of the August 6th Missouri primary.

The new Emerson College Polling/The Hill/Missouri Nexstar poll shows a tight, two-person race for the Republican nomination for Missouri governor, plus much more, from the presidential race to the issues of sports betting and abortion access.

The Missouri Governor’s Race

The first thing that jumps out of the poll is the Republican Missouri Governor primary race. No candidate tops 25% among likely Republican voters.  46% are undecided, double the top two candidates combined.

A poll finds 23% of voters support Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft, 20% support Lt. Governor Mike Kehoe, and 6% support State Senator Bill Eigel.

Emerson College Polling’s Senior Director, Matt Taglia, says it looks like a two-person race to the finish between Ashcroft and Kehoe.
